Welcome to SÄIE footwear! SÄIE is a small footwear brand in Finland which manufactures the final products in Portugal. As a designer I want to make shoes which are classy, comfortable, high quality, and long lasting products.
I aim to design the products which are easily repaired. Reason for that is because I also work as a gobbler beside my company. My endeavor is to produce the high quality products which are long lasting. My aim is to emphasize long life products instead of consumable items and to work towards sustainable future by developing new footwear for daily use.
SÄIE footwear has a taste of 60’s rock’ n roll attitude. I have been inspired by 60’s music, aesthetics and the mod -style. I’m originally graphic designer so I pay careful attention to the lines, colors and hues of the shoes. Creating something with your hands fascinates me and it is always a pleasure to see my ideas in the final product. The factory which is manufacturing my shoes has been founded 1965 and I can also join into their ideology: “Men liberate their irreverent bad boy spirit at night, after an intense and formal working day. Women fight the energetic rhythm of their jobs during the day and, at night, following the sound of Rock and roll, feel free and released, becoming seductive as an absolute jungle queen.” I play also music myself and it’s close to my heart. Future collection of my shoes will follow the same ethos with a little changes to the materials and colors. I don't want to make rapidly changing collection because I want to work towards sustainable future.
I use "Goodyear welt" in the sole of men's model shoes. It is very durable and stylish choice attaching the soles to the shoes. Soles are leather in men's model, so if you want to use them out in the weather conditions of Northern Europe, you should add a rubber outsole to them so the stitch of the sole is protected and there is a grip. Women's model already has a rubber outsole so they are ready to use. Just pay attention to change heelpiece time to time to keep your shoes in good condition.
