Every unknown journey begins with a risky step forward and a high dose of hope.
This is how Manuel Resende Vieira began his path when he created his footwear factory, back in the 60’s, and where MLV Portuguese Shoes still maintains its headquarters. Driven by the values he believed in and the ingenuity he had perfected, Manuel Resende Vieira could not have guessed how far his walk would take him.
Today, after many miles travelled without ever leaving Escapães, the land where the first pair of shoes was designed, the steps we continue to take are strong. They are taken with the same hope of those who know that they are on the right path. We look back at the past with the same enthusiasm with which Manuel Resende Vieira looked to the future and it seems like our journey has only just begun.
Let's go together to reach further
There is an old saying that states "if you want to go fast, go alone; if you want to go far, go with someone". During the last years of activity we have realized that there is a slight variation to this saying, when the journey is made with someone - the right someone, that someone who completes us - everything becomes much more interesting.
After years of gathering experience and consolidating the brand in retail sales, we have asked many questions with the intention of finding the right ones, for they lead us towards the answers we are really seeking. There have always been some questions that overlap each other: what are our clients looking for? What characterises them? How can we improve our products, based on their experience?
It was with the intention of finding these answers that we held in 2019 our first MLV Open Day. This event became a milestone for our brand and it allowed us to take an important step closer to our clientes, gathering their much valued opinions towards our creativity.
2020: the year of the brand’s (r)evolution!
It was with this objective that the brand, in 2020, began a change of culture and paradigm with the intention of adapting itself to a new reality. It is essential to give continuity to all the greatness that has been created, always giving priority to the opinions of those who use our products.
