I love the style of Nila... they look great and go with everything. They don’t perhaps have an ultimate arch support or cushioned comfort style of footbed, but you can put one in.
The first pair were in Taupe colour and inside the shoe said ‘hand made in Portugal’. The second pair I bought said ‘ handcrafted in Portugal’ printed on the inner sole. But this last pair of Brandy Nila just says ‘EOS As You Are’ and the only reference to the shoe being hand made in Portugal was a removable sticker on the outer sole that said” Made in Portugal”.
I found it a little confusing because hand made in Portugal is different to made in Portugal or handcrafted in Portugal. I would prefer this good looking boot to have the same information on the inner sole, pair after pair, but that is just how I feel as a brand consumer, my preference.
That said, if you are looking for a wonderfully hand crafted, or hand made or genuinely well made boot with stunning leather , glove like, that is easy to wear everyday and an eye catching look, Nila is a top choice. If the Taupe comes back, I would love that. It is a narrow fit so I upped the size this purchase. Either works size wise.
