The noun became a name to designate the brand that produces quality footwear. Thus was born LABUTA, which goes back to the past to use artisanal manufacturing processes and is situated in modernity by techniques, design and superior materials.
Initially inspired by the most emblematic professions, LABUTA presents a vast collection with the icons of the collective imagination of recent history. These are the brand’s inspirations: Models that throughout history, due to their demand and specificity, demanded a footwear of superior quality and durability. We added comfort.
In a sector that makes the country proud for its know-how, recognized inside and outside the country, the tradition and culture of Portugal are the basis of collections oriented to an informed public, appreciative of a consumption experience based on non-ephemeral values.
Based on circular economy concepts and the reuse of materials like corn and tyres, these boots are the result of a collaboration between Labuta, Bordalo II and AEPGA – Associação para o Estudo e Proteção do Gado Asinino.
This partnership stems from the common concern to encourage not only the adoption of an alternative and sustainable consumption pattern but also the defense of the Burro de Miranda, a native Portuguese breed originating from the Miranda plateau, which is threatened with extinction.
The artist Bordalo II created a mural trash art, through which the donkey is represented and that will be installed in the Iberian Park of Nature and Adventure in the municipality of Vimioso.
These boots, also have the engraving of an illustration of Bordalo II, and for each pair sold, the buyer will receive a free voucher of sponsorship of one of the donkeys integrated in the AEPGA campaign, in the value of 30€).
