Our passion for shoe making started with Jose Antonio Parras Fernandez since 1960 and the tradition continues today. He has crafted every shoe by hand, with attention to detail and selecting the best materials available. He wanted his shoes to be so comfortable that you didnt want to take them off! Soon friends told friends about their most “comfortable new shoes” and before long Modabella became a well known brand without any advertising. The shoes he sells today are the result of 50 years of hard work, dedication, and the belief that he must always strive to be better.
Every day we work to make sure the Modabella name continues to stand for superb craftsmanship and extraordinary comfort. With every step along the way we’ve made new customers and friends. If you are one of those – we thank you. If you aren’t a customer yet, we invite you to try our shoes -you’ll be glad you did.
Comfort begins with the soft natural leather of the finest quality. Most of our shoes are handcrafted construction. This means the soft upper leather wraps completely around your foot. Leather is an ideal upper material because it's breathable. It has the ability to absorb and wick away moisture. Each upper is cut from the same leather type. Then pieces are stitched together, the plug is hand sew in place and the shoe is hand lasted on a last designed by the Modabella Shoemakers.
Sole laying is the most demanding part of the shoe making , Time should be accurate for perfect placement on the shoe press , All within seconds , heat and pressure are the two main factors in order to obtain quality finishing.
