We love shoes like you do!
Welcome to Brazil Heels! We offer the unique Brazilian concept of beauty and fashion to make you feel more confident and empowered. We believe each woman has her own unique beauty and style.
We are shoe lovers
Brazil Heels is the result of our passion for shoes and our desire to spread the beauty and colors from Brazil into Canada.
We are passionate about shoes. We want our customers to be satisfied first time, every time. That's why at Brazil Heels we work with well-known, established, and reliable manufacturers by partnering with recognized Brazilian brands that, like us, prioritize the beauty and exclusiveness of shoes made in Brazil.
Why Brazilian shoes?
Brazil is a mix of cultures and Brazilians are known for being warm-hearted people. But did you know that Brazilian shoes are also famous and highly valued around Asia and Europe? Brazil is the 4th biggest shoe producer in the world and exports them to many countries since the 60s.
Brazil is a land of happiness and Brazilians put charisma and joy into everything they do, even their shoes. The result is a unique and colorful design that makes people feel they are wearing more than just a pair of shoes.
Shoes made in Brazil are just like Brazilians. They reflect a vibrant soul and help women worldwide wear the distinct fun and charm of Brazilian culture.
Brazil Heels’ online store was officially launched in 2019, but our story began back in 2015 when our founder Ms. Costa immigrated from Brazil to Canada. She was born and raised in the south of Brazil, a region that is quite famous for having many reliable shoe manufacturers.
Ms. Costa has always dreamt to have her own business, so she came to Canada with a passion for shoes. “In my first job in Toronto, my colleagues gave me compliments regarding the ballerinas I was wearing. They used to ask me where I bought them. My answer always was: ‘I bought them in Brazil’. I thought that was curious, so I decided to research the market, and realized that Canada doesn't offer the Brazilian style and the good-quality shoes made in Brazil”, says Ms. Costa about the time she realized she could bring her interests for shoes and entrepreneurship together.
To gain the necessary expertise to open her own business, she attended a Bridging Program in Management at York University, an Entrepreneurship Course at Acces Employment, and a Summer entrepreneurship course at George Brown College. “This way Brazil Heels was born and came to life. I was lucky to have the help of three Brazilian professionals: a talented designer, an experienced project manager who developed the website, and a very creative social media marketing specialist who produces the marketing strategies and all the content for our social media on Instagram and Facebook”, finishes Ms. Costa.
Let’s make a difference | Our Social Contribution
We believe that social issues are priorities in business and want to make a significant contribution to society. After dealing with breast cancer, Ms. Costa wants to help other people touched by cancer as well as their families. For this reason we decided to donate part of our profits to Gilda's Club Greater Toronto, which is a local affiliate of the Cancer Support Community, an international organization that provides free social and emotional support for anyone touched by cancer - adults, teens, and children - along with their family and friends.
