Sustainable & handmade
sneakers created to make you #slowdown.
Designed, sourced and crafted in Portugal
We are committed to a more sustainable future, so we have designed a sneaker that will not only
stand the test of time but is also repairable, by us.
WE ARE THE ANTI-FASHION SNEAKER BRAND.
Hirundo – Go Slowly, Go Green!
We Believe in shoes built to last and that they never run out of fashion.
We believe that good shoes take time to make.
We believe that shoes, like good wine, should age with grace.
We believe in the power of walking rather than running.
We believe in comfort and style over Fashion and trends.
THESE SHOES ARE MADE FOR WALKING
We won’t promise you they’ll make you run faster because who still truly believes the faster the better? These shoes are made for slowing down. Enjoying life and its little pleasures.
They won’t make you run faster, because who believes that faster is better anyway?
Like swallows you will not be the fastest, but they’ll always get you home, comfortably.
THESE SHOES HAVE
HIGH STANDARDS AT EVERY STEP
THESE SHOES WALK THE TALK
SO YOU CAN WALK AND TALK!
They are 100% sustainable made of Portuguese made materials such as cotton, leather, or cork and rubber because we believe in preserving mother earth. And because you are the one who decides in the end. We’re making them in the best place on earth so you can enjoy them anywhere.
WE ARE NOT FASHION SELLERS.
WE ARE TIME KEEPERS.
WE TAKE THE TIME…
We don’t care about keeping up with trends, we want to help you get the most out of your time.
We do not seek to offer shoes for a season but shoes for a lifetime. This is why, we only offer cult classics. We believe in durability and quality. We believe in Portuguese materials such as leather, cotton or cork.
At HIRUNDO, our products are made in a considerate and thoughtful manner. We source alternative and sustainable materials in accordance with ethical, social and ecological principles. Therefore, we expect our business partners to conduct their business in compliance with the same values and respect of our company. We have presented this business partners Code of Conduct to clarify the minimum standards expected from the business partners who are, directly or indirectly, part of the value chain of our sneakers.
We are first and foremost a Portuguese company and we aim to value, develop and showcase the best the Portuguese industry has to offer. That is why we always try to find a local supplier whenever possible. For raw materials, goods sold and services.
We have a commitment to purchase core products (at least 50% of non-labor expenses) from independent suppliers local.
As an employee of HIRUNDO it is your responsibility to always find the best possible alternative to non-local and non-independent suppliers. When dealing with our suppliers we need them to comply to our code of conduct to ensure that they share our commitments.
