The story
of Vagabond

The brand Vagabond was first born in Sweden 1973. The foundation of today’s Vagabond Shoemakers happened twenty years later. Ever since the start the vision has been to be a global fashion brand within shoes, for the fashion and quality driven consumer.

 

During the 80’s our founders got busy learning about shoes and started to apply their design philosophy on-site, close to the best available skills within shoemaking in Portugal and Italy. During this time, Vagabond is truly acknowledged by the bigger audience and the first bestsellers hit the market.

After first being a pure men’s shoe brand, we consciously set focus to extend with female footwear fashion. This was accomplished through new unisex shoes and boots that the Scandinavian market had never seen before! In the 90’s we explore new and bigger markets and add on further iconic shoe styles, which are still today important archive references in the design process.

 

In the beginning a handful of people was running the show. Today we are about 500 skilled persons, all involved in the process of making great looking quality shoes for the modern vagabond who cares about style and a sustainable way of life.
