Our history

Handmade Bespoke shoes for men

“A man who works with his hands is a labourer; a man who works with his hands and his brain is a craftsman; but a man who works with his hands and his brain and his heart is an artist.” 

― Louis Nizer

Welcome to Cambrillón

Cambrillón is a Spanish leather goods house that offers the finest traditional craftsmanship in bespoke leather shoes, combined with the most advanced digital technology in personalisation, yielding a unique combination of artisan handcrafted shoes, perfectly customised down to every last detail.

Our shoes are handmade in Almansa, a traditional leatherworking town in the heart of Spain.

Our innovation is that through advanced 3D modelling and a fully personalised online customisation process, you’re able to customise your shoes to every last detail. This combination of artisan skills and modern technology is what sets Cambrillón apart, guaranteeing shoes that will change the way you experience footwear.

Our Company: our own story

Our own foundations are strong. It’s our community in Almansa; a small leatherworking town in the region of Castile-La Mancha in Spain where shoes have been crafted by hand for generations

Here in Almansa, things happen at a different scale and pace to the rest of the world. We work to the natural pace of human labour, with the same team overseeing the same pair of shoes from start to finish. Our atelier, for example, is more like a family. There are around a dozen steps to the making of a bespoke leather shoe, and each step is owned by an expert, someone who only does that thing, and has done so their entire lives.

Every expert leather cutter, or stitcher, or shaper, or polisher, brings their specialised skills to the process of crafting a truly custom-made shoe.

Crafting strong foundations is at the heart of everything we do.

What holds it all together to form a shoe, in the end, is the base of the shoe, the Cambrillón.

Without it, it would lack internal strength and stability. To us, our expert team of traditional artisans play that same role in our story. We may use cutting edge technology to give you access to the most personalised, comfortable, crafted shoes, but at our core, it’s our traditional artisans and their impeccable invisible craftsmanship who are the Cambrillón of our business.

Cambrillón Brand values

Made to be unique. Our shoes are much more than a pair of comfortable, bespoke shoes of the highest quality. They are a truly unique, piece of art: designed by you, handmade in Spain… just for you.

Stability. At our heart, we want to provide you with the security and confidence that you can take on anything. That’s why our shoes are impeccably crafted to be strong and stable, first and foremost. We’re so committed to never letting you down, that we promise to continue to repair them for as long as you can wear them.

Self-Expression . Shoes are extremely personal, so we want you to express a bit of you.

That’s why we offer the incredible range of personalisation options we do, so that you feel like you’re expressing your true self every step of the way.

Improvement. We believe in constantly iterating to get better every day, never staying still.

As a connected, data-powered brand, we ensure we’re listening closely to consumer needs every day and building on them to constantly deliver more of what they want.

Craftsmanship. We believe in the value of our heritage. At every stage of our process, we let our specialised craftspeople practise and perfect what only they can do, and it’s their ownership of the process from start to finish that makes a true pair of Cambrillón shoes.

Community. Cambrillón is more of a community than a company, more of a family than a factory. Our community in Almansa is the backbone of this brand, and when you wear a pair of Cambrillón shoes, you become part of our family too.
