Our Story

Over 25 years, Emel handmade shoes have become the leading standard for children’s shoes in Europe.  Established in 1990 to meet the growing expectations of well-informed parents and the ever evolving needs of children's feet. We have created hundreds of lasts, and thousands of models, and after decades of study, have become experts regarding children's needs for their first steps.

We produce meticulously handmade, award winning, quality shoes made from the finest materials and backed by industry leading orthopedic insoles. We believe every child deserves a perfect first step and we want to be there supporting them from the first step to each running, skipping, and hopping move that follows.

At Emel, we understand that your little one has their own indi-kid-ual style. We produce hundreds of models with countless of variants in color, texture, material, and closures. All handwork is done with our small, efficient team of skilled artisans for the world's most discerning clients.

All Emel shoes are back by our legendary Lifetime Guarantee. Our shoes are an investment in your child's correct development and delivering an incredible value does not mean making things cheaper. It means giving you a beautiful, durable product that will last. Emel shoes are always guaranteed for the life of the product against defects in materials and workmanship. Outside of reasonable wear and tear or abuse, we will repair or replace, free of charge, any item.
