This workshop was super fun! Paola & Caterina we’re super helpful & fun! They even brought donuts for us to snack on while making the shoes! I love my pair of espadrille & it was such a wonderful experience for my first visit to Barcelona! Definitely recommend checking this out if you’d like to do something different besides taking cooking classes!

What a great and unique experience. Paola helped me to pick my colors and was very patient. It took me a minute to come up with the right shades. BUT OMG, did my shows come out perfect. I got so many compliments! All my friends want a pair now.

My boyfriend and I love the handmade shoes from Luis and his team. They have the best quality and super soft leather. Specially the shoes for men we buy almost every year. My boyfriend is so obsessed with the quality that he extra drives to barcelona to get a pair each year. They have super fancy colors like navy, sand and camel brown as you can see in the pictures.

Luis is super cool and really does everything for his customers. I never have experienced such a Great Service in any other shop around the world. You can feel the heart and passion he and his team put into the business and I clearly can differentiate a family business like Luis‘s from all the other cash grabbing franchises. We love to support local businesses and people and I can highly recommend the shoes.

And there is even more. Handmade barcelona is not only a shoe - it is an experience. They offer Workshop for groups, individuals or families where you can create and make your own shoes. Super cool.

Do not miss this great experience and find more information on the webpage and Instagram.

Thanks to Luis and his team we will come back everytime when we visit Spain. Cheers Michelle and Kilian.

What a great little shop down the road from La Boqueria in Barcelona! We fell in love with this place due to the owner Luis as he made us feel welcome and helped us pick out the perfect gifts for our family back home in Atlanta!!

If you are looking for handmade leather shoes or espadrilles then you have found your store!! I wish this store were in Atlanta as my wife and I would buy all of our shoes from Handmade Barcelona!

Luis gave me the best advice: ""Live like your a tourist in your own city"...meaning that you can enjoy the most of the city you live because if people are visiting your city then it must have places/activities that are interesting to see!!

We were looking for a souvenir for my doughter and happend to pass by the store. My doughter could self pick the colours and details for her shoes and even my son had found some fitting him perfectly. Katha was very welcoming and treated the children like a real professional :) (the kids didn't want to leave the store).
If you want a unique souvenir from Barcelona this is a perfect place.

Luis and his team were amazing and created an unforgettable experience in the Gothic Quarter. We learned the history of the espadrille and set about making our own unique pair. He and his team were fun, hands-on and so great to spend the morning with. they sprinkled the hard work of shoe design with delightful moments that made it so much more. If you want a truly great tourist experience in Catalunya this is the ONE!!!

I had come to try to find a souvenir of Barcelona in this shop and I left with two magnificent pairs of handmade shoes. The staff is very welcoming and attentive. They will be there to advise you, and will put you at ease from the first impression. Their models are original and of great quality, I highly recommend this brand and are very endearing personal!!

A happy way to spend a rainy day in Barcelona. Paola and Carolina were happy and helpful. They went above and beyond to make it a fun experience. Encouraging the entire time.
