Our designs

Since 1952, we have been committed to creating locally produced shoes of the highest quality possible. Carel shoes are recognized worldwide for their quality and the nobility of the leathers chosen.

All our shoes are made in Europe, mainly in Italy as well as in Spain and Portugal. Since 2020, some of our eco-friendly shoes are also made in France.

We choose each of our workshops for their speciality and savoir-faire and we maintain long-lasting partnerships with each of them.

Find your CAREL shoe size by following the best tips!

First of all, we recommend measuring the length of your feet in centimeters.
Our advice: put on a sock, place your foot against a wall on a sheet of paper long enough for your foot not to stick out.
Be sure to keep your heel firmly against the wall and your foot flat.
Make a small mark in front of your longest toe.
And finally, measure the distance from the end of your paper to the mark.
With the length of your feet, check our size chart to find your CAREL size.
Then, pick up your next pair of CAREL shoes and follow our tips for each one.
Remember: from one design to the next you may need to choose a different size.

How to measure your size ?

Our tip:

While wearing a sock, place your foot against a wall on a sheet of paper long enough to keep your foot from sticking out.
Be sure to keep your heel firmly against the wall and your foot flat.
Make a small mark in front of your longest toe.
Finally, measure the distance between the end of your sheet and the mark you made.
If the length is between two sizes, round up to the biggest one.
