Alexandre Birman

Alexandre Birman was destined to create beautiful, handcrafted shoes. A native of Brazil, Birman was born into a family that has dominated the South American footwear market since the 1970’s. “I was raised in a shoe factory — and that’s not marketing, that’s the true story of my life,” he often says of his upbringing. He designed his first shoe at the age of 12, which was the very beginning of an illustrious career in the family business for Alexandre.
