Designer, João Pedro Filipe, is the award winning designer and creator of men’s footwear label, senhor PRUDÊNCIO.
João’s grandfather was named “Senhor Prudêncio’, he too was a fine cobbler who made all of the shoes for everyone in the city of Porto, Portugal.
After taking the measurements of the entire city’s feet he would begin sculpting and constructing each pair of shoes individually. Once all the shoes were complete the shoes were wrapped up together and placed in a large canvas bag that he would tie to his bicycle. Senhor would cycle to each household to deliver each bespoke and hand made pair of shoes.
João insists it is pure coincidence that he share the same passion and career as his late grandfather however, it appears that some kind of biological force has been at work and that João was destined for this career and a responsibility of carrying on the family tradition of Portuguese leather craftsmanship made with love.
In 2012 João won the British Council Young Creative Entrepreneur Award for his remarkable skill and creativity and the award has enabled senhor PRUDÊNCIO to explore and further develop the brand across the globe.
