Start.
Change.

We turn the shoe you have idealized into a real, flawless object that carries your vision.

HOW

AT SOZÉ, THERE IS NO ROOM FOR CHAOS.

All processes are tested and have been
continuously perfected throughout our
40 years of experience.

We have NO STYLE. We make our partners' visions come true, contributing to their brands' technical development. That's it.

FLEXIBILITY is one of our greatest strengths, when time comes to operate and to build. We possess the knowledge to adapt to our client's profile.

At Sozé the scrupulous meeting of DEADLINES is enough to motivate and stimulate us. Hard work is something we like, and only that way can we make excellent products. And we are in love with what we do. We keep in mind that all orders are to be ready for yesterday. That's the way it works and we are used to the idea. We follow an efficient, practical process, without too much layering.

METHODS

WE ARE ABLE TO USE SEVERAL CONSTRUCTION METHODS.

A vast network of raw material suppliers provides a vital hand in the production process.

Here is the list of techiques we frequently use:

Goodyear Welted (360, ¾ and Flexible)
Blake, California and S. Crispino
Sachetto, Stich Down and Blake Rapid
Cemented, Mocassin and Drive
Strobel, Water Proof and Washed Shoes
Hybrid Assembly Systems

R&D

AT SOZÉ, THE R&D LAB IS AS RELEVANT AS PRODUCTION ITSELF.

All work developed at our Sample Lab is 100%
free of charge for our partners.

We have a small, qualified team, 100% committed to our Sample Lab.

They are open to challenging ideas, even to those that may seem silly at first.

There are projects whose technical complexity raises questions, on the partner, as to the final result. We like that. We feed on challenges and enjoy being seduced. We love to reach the impossible and twist it.

TEAM

FOR US, THERE ARE NO INDIVIDUAL SIGNATURES.

It is the team that develops each project.

Our company employs over 170 people. All the inherent responsibilities are taken and coordinated by us, in an example of financial and economical sustainability.

On average the members of our staff are 38 years old and have been in the company for 11 years. They are all great artisans, having been trained both inside and outside our facilities. Besides being talented and technically competent professionals, they are honest people who feel proud of the results they achieve.

We don't employ salesmen. If you honour us with your visit, you will be joined by someone who is able to understand what you want, rather than by an expert in selling you stuff you may not even need.

ABOUT

PORTFOLIO

SAY
HI!

Sozé is a modern, methodical industrial company that makes footwear. There is no room for randomness, excellence's worst enemy. Perfection will never be unattended and it will always arrive on time.

We've been making shoes since 1976, when the footwear industry had just begun its development in Portugal. Back then, China didn't know what a vamp was, and in Eastern Europe production was yet to begin. Since our foundation, we've been on the frontline of technical, technological and methodological innovation.

We possess the ability, the competence and the experience it takes to coordinate the necessary skills.

There are many different production processes that seduce us. From the Goodyear to the Moccasin, from the unique piece to the series of thousands.

We believe in the impact of the product we make. At the same time as we produce shoes, we support fashion and the environment, giving our contribution to its sustainability.

We are present in over 20 countries.

Our company is supported by Honesty, Responsibility and Understanding of our partners' needs. These are all mandatory conditions to reach sustainable success. It is through these values that we obtain measurable, duly auditioned results that propel our partners and clients to new heights.

We know that, ultimately, the shoes we produce will be worn by intelligent individuals. Our commitment is to make footwear for people who know what they want.

At Sozé, we all understand and share this view and we deal with it daily. We are permanently committed to contributing positively towards a better society and the respect for nature. That is achieved by keeping high ethical standards, respecting human rights and the environment, supporting local community associations and the personal development of each of our collaborators.

With every order, we adapt to the culture of each of our partners, always considering responsibility, partnership, trust, knowledge and cohesion. We know that the race to build a strong footwear brand is a long-distance one, which means that intimate and lasting relationships are necessary. Every time, we identify the goals of our partners and work each of their projects with maximum precision, regardless of their dimension.

We implement the most ambitious ideas, considering as reference the best practice worldwide. All the advice we provide is the same we would give if it were our business, in order to achieve all of their brands' potential, pushing up limits and exploring all possibilities.

We are committed to adding permanent and continuous value and not just on a periodic basis. “Trust and be trusted” is a motto around here.

Discretion is extremely important for us.
All the information we have as far as our partners are concerned is strictly confidential.
Success belongs to our partners, our job is merely to assist them in achieving it. It would be impolite to publicly take credit for their merits.

Pay us a visit and we will be delighted to share our extensive portfolio with you.

Let’s talk. Or meet in person.

We are always happy to make valuable new contacts and are looking forward to receiving your mail or call. Even if you’re not sure we’ll be the right ones for your project. We’re always open to a chat and will be happy to help – of course also in person, wherever you are.
