We at Bird of Flight are extremely proud to partner with our Brazilian factory, whose history is rooted in quality shoemaking and whose people care deeply about their craft, their environment, and their community. Our comfy uppers and linings are made from insanely soft, vegetable tanned, naturally dyed leathers that are meant to get better the more they are worn.
Our founder, Naomi Reid, has childhood memories of being enchanted with her new school shoes. Originally from New York, she moved to San Francisco in her early 20’s where she launched her shoe design career. There, her work was influenced by the relaxed and unconventional California lifestyle and the fresh scent of eucalyptus and sage. Whatever part of the world she’s traveling through, she is endlessly inspired by women who possess an ageless and effortless style. Inspired by a lifelong dream, and with all these beautiful women in mind, Naomi founded Bird of Flight.
