Did someone say “shoes”?

by Lee Oliveira on November 17, 2010

Last night I had the pleasure of attending the Australian launch of Brazilian shoe brand, Via Uno. The party was held in the penthouse at “The Ivy” in Sydney so how could I refuse? …. haha

Brazil is one of the largest manufacturers of shoes in the world and with this comes quality and expertise for the most part so I knew I wouldn’t be disappointed.

The brand was established in 1991 and now is represented globally throughout South America, The Middle East, Europe and now downunder right here in Australia.

I managed to get some quite good shots of the models wearing their heals and these are some of the best.

Now ladies.. isn’t this “shoe heaven”? Which one would you pick. Don’t be greedy…. Ok.. be greedy!! haha

Click here to see a short video of me in action with my camera at the launch party.

Thanks for the invite Via Uno. I had such a good night.

Ahhh, me wants all of ’em!!! Ok, the last 3 pairs would make it onto my wish list! Do they deliver international?

Definitely agree with you on the Brazillian quality of shoes & leather; that’s where all the Topshop Footwear buyers head to when manufacturing they’re amazing shoes.

I bet you had a great time!

What fabulous shoes. The details on the first pair is superb. I love that you posted these photos of women’s shoes for us to drool over!

Liz S. November 18, 2010

All are fantastic and photos are great. Those black leather ones with the beautiful grained timber heels are my favourite. I hope the Brazilian shoe industry keeps going strong in the face of cheap competition, as their quality is sooo much better and their design is that bit different…. and both have been outstanding for decades. I also hope they don’t get pushed to outsource in search of the bigger dollar and they keep to their high standard of craftsmanship.
