Henrik Berg liked shoes, but he didn't like what he saw in the shops. So this graduate of the Stockholm School of Economics set out to create a brand that would offer high quality handmade classic styles at a more affordable price. As Berg has told interviewers, "The inspiration behind Morjas is simple: we wanted to create the best-looking shoes, with amazing craftsmanship, and make them accessible to everyone.”
The key is a direct-to-you business model, cutting out distributors and retailers, so that no-compromise handmade boots, lace-ups and loafers are up to half the price that you'd usually expect to pay for such high-end footwear. Design draws on Scandinavian minimalism while construction is in selected footwear studios in the Spanish town of Almansa where each pair is hand-crafted using long-established, traditional methods.
Because Morjas hand-make all of their footwear and use different lasts for different styles, it pays to keep an eye on what that means for sizing. To find your perfect fit, scroll on for our Morjas sizing guide.
Morjas sizing notes
- All of Morjas' footwear is handmade, and a variety of lasts are used
- Morjas boots, lace-ups, opera pumps and sneakers are true to your usual size
- The brand's loafers and espadrilles fit large, so the advice is to go down a half size
- Some shoe styles, including sneakers, are only made in full sizes, so if you are in between sizes we recommend going up to the nearest whole size
- If in any doubt, consult the individual product pages for specific measurements
