The Mandarina Story

The Mandarina Story

More Bond Street than High Street, Mandarina Shoes has - literally - established a foothold as one of the UK's foremost high-end designer shoe brands, and has a loyal following of discerning international clients including celebrities and royals to prove it. Founder and Brand Director, Caroline Townsend, sources fabrics from around the world to use in her limited edition collections of amazing shoes and boots that are unique, stylish, fun and original - and very reasonably priced.

Established in 2004, was one of the very first footwear brands to sell exclusively online, and has never looked back. The secret says Caroline "is not only our great range of unique styles, but also our dedicated personal service and no quibble returns policy. We are very happy to offer fitting advice over the phone or by email prior to purchase, in fact I would encourage people who are unsure what size to order to get in touch. I am incredibly lucky to have a great team working for me plus amazing models who show our shoes at their best!"

Mandarina's extensive range includes pretty ballerina pumps, perky kitten heels, classic court shoes, party slingbacks, amazing wedding shoes, funky ankle boots, great sneakers, espadrilles and summer slides in a wonderful choice of zingy colours and patterns.

Caroline works with all kinds of exotic textiles including home grown Harris Tweed as well as lustrous velvets, printed linens, toiles, silk brocades, cotton twill, and vibrantly dyed suedes. 

Company HQ and distribution is based out of Angus in Scotland, but the hand-made shoes and boots are manufactured in Spain, Italy and a small family-owned factory in Vietnam.

No matter what shoe or boot you may choose, when you wear a pair by Mandarina you are guaranteed to stand out from the crowd.  The signature shoe linings in vivid colours, and the orange silk shoe bags and mailing boxes are now synonymous with the Mandarina brand. 

Limited editions. Fun, Quirky and Original - Mandarina Shoes are unique and beautiful.
