Established in 2015, this is our ongoing exercise in the pursuit of timeless beauty through the development and production of premium footwear products for International clients.

The Agency

The Portuguese Corner's mission is to affirm authentic design and manufacture Made in Portugal.

Footwear has been our passion for the last 20 years. Having started our careers in London in sales and marketing of branded footwear back in 1996 we have naturally converged in all areas of the business, from design to distribution. We have developed a number of prestigious brands and designers with a diverse range of products and constructions from classic to contemporary.

Our strong and confident personalities are matched to our enthusiasm for all things creative. Many years of working in fashion and a local presence and insider’s knowledge of the local industry have prompted solid relationships with unique manufacturers we've known for many years, so after all these years we've decided to return to our hometown in the north of Portugal and pursue different challenges. Realizing consulting stints with local companies and emerging brands we grew hungry for product again.

The Agency allows us to bring together manufacturers and designers in the quest to develop singular product that pays homage to the distinctive Made in Portugal signatures we valued throughtout the years. We select and work with the best and most adequate manufacturing partners following careful research of the brand's positioning and need in product type and price.


By Portuguese Standard or something close to the word 'bypass'... a series of capsule colections introducing high quality footwear developed with local manufacturers that are chosen for their genuine approach to construction, production techniques and finished product signatures.

We embrace a new standard in manufacturing, showcasing a new energy and purpose rooted in tradition and know-how and passed on as significant value and message.

We partner with international brands and stores to develop footwear ideas that are relevant to the discerning consumer of today. From streetwear to contemporary we deliver on any footwear project. Every project is developed and produced in our own hometown in the north of Portugal by the best local manufacturers who produce shoes for reputed brands.

The BYPS concept will be made available via a Direct-to-Consumer channel starting in 2018.
