AFT-R Barcelona is a premium brand of platform shoes established in Barcelona and produced in the province of Alicante, Spain. AFT-R is committed to people’s identity above gender or any type of condition. Eccentricity, comfort and durability are the starting points for our designs.
We design for folks who like to live on the edge, for those who defy the norm. Beings who are true to themselves and question social standards. “Why? (& Why not?)” We love platforms because they offer you a wider perspective of the World, allowing you to fly as high as you want. AFT-R is an exciting journey, a trip we’re on that we don’t want to jump off. Are you joining us?
1. WE BELIEVE IN WHO WE ARE AND WHAT WE DO: PEOPLE WHO LIVE FREELY WITHOUT PREJUDICE OR TABOOS.
We understand eccentricity as a creative rebellion, as a need to break boundaries to end the oppressive binary stereotypes. A social protest against the Establishment and the old norms that come with it. A nod to unconventional beauty. That's why our capsule collections are an explosion of colors, fabrics and different textures. A brand that is aware of the 21st Century values, for all of those who dare to color outside the lines. A celebration of what's odd and different.
2. WE STAND BY FREEDOM OF CHOICE. WE ACKNOWLEDGE AND CELEBRATE EVERY GENDER IDENTITY AND EXPRESSION, SEXUAL ORIENTATION, ETHNICITY OR PHYSICAL CHALLENGES.
Our size range goes from a UK 3 to a UK 11 (36 to 45 in European sizing).
3. WE CREATE PREMIUM PLATFORM SHOES: HIGH, COMFORTABLE AND LIGHTWEIGHT.
Working with qualified makers who preserve traditional techniques in the manufacture of footwear allows us the creation of high-quality objects.
Well-made comfortable shoes that last for a long time thus reducing excessive consumption. We also work with materials whose origin we know, controlling their quality and their commitment to the environment.
