Will my order be shipped ? / Is it going to be sent on time ?

We are doing our best to ship your parcel as soon as we can. But know that our transportation and logistics departments are still in the process of structuring, taking care of their health in priority. Concerning the delivery time, we are sorry about it but please bear with us and expect some delay as our workforce is quite reduced.

All of your refund demands will of course be treated but might unfortunately take us a little more time than usual.  For more specific information, contact us by email at 


Where are our shoes made?

Carel shoes are known throughout the world for their quality and fine leather. All our shoes are made in Europe (Italy, Spain, or Portugal).

How to wisely choose my size ?

We are working with several workshops in Italy, Spain and Portugal, asking for their respective expertise and offer you the best quality shoes. 

The fitting of our shoes changes a lot as each workshop has its own technique and savoir-faire. 

That’s why you will find in every shoe description a « Size Advice » adapted to every design, to guide you. 


If you still have doubts  on which size you should choose, feel free to contact us by email at or through our Contact Form.
