Our Story

Sampla is an independent brand rooted in the heart of Waterford, Ireland.

Our journey began with a simple quest. To find a pair of shoes that embodied sustainability, ethical craftsmanship, and timeless design. Faced with the challenge of not finding a pair matched our requirements, we embarked on a mission to create footwear that not only met our standards but also reflected our values.

The Irish word for example is Sampla. This embodies our commitment to setting a standard in the industry. We aspire to be an example by inspiring a lifestyle rooted in a slow consumption model. Our designs are a testament to our dedication to use sustainable and innovative materials, meticulously crafted under ethical working conditions right here in Europe.

For us, quality always precedes quantity. Each product we create is the result of careful consideration, ensuring that elegance is achieved without compromise.
Elegance Without Consequence.
