The House of Lago old
the house of lago
disrupting fashion, one step at a time
Invented from a need
Welcome! My name is Silvia, and I am the Founder and Creative Director of Silvia Lago Barcelona. I have always loved high heels and after failing to find stilettos that were both stylish and comfortable, I moved to one of the world’s most prestigious regions of luxury shoemaking in Spain, to try to find a solution. After several years of working with a team of footwear experts, biomechanics scientists, podiatrists and last artisans we have developed the first high performance luxury high heel shoes that measurably improve comfort without sacrificing a sophisticated look.
We have combined the knowledge of biomechanical science with footwear expertise to champion a technology which forces the foot to walk as anatomically correct as possible while providing unparalleled comfort when walking in high heels. Our design and materials measurably improve load distribution, reduce impact shock, and minimize friction, resulting in a healthier and longer-wearing high heel shoe that never compromises on a sophisticated look.
Featuring classically designed shapes with an emphasis on rich leathers and fabrics, supreme comfort and exceptional Spanish craftsmanship, each pair of Lagos exudes timeless style, femininity and grace. A collection of chic and sophisticated pieces inspired by the timeless elegance of old-time glamour. Silvia Lago is the ultimate destination for renovated classic silhouettes that are luxurious, comfortable and versatile.
Our collection is distinguished by its ability to seamlessly pair our innovative technology with luxurious craftsmanship and modern style. For us creating a shoe that’s comfortable is equally as important as designing one that’s beautiful and well-crafted. Our shoes are handcrafted with the finest Italian leathers and world-class materials, quality pattern and sewing techniques, and a high attention to detail to deliver exceptional shoes.
We have partnered with family-owned factories in Spain where master cobblers have produced luxury footwear for generations. We have a sustainable production system and all our materials are ethically sourced from Spanish or Italian suppliers. We are proud to have a personal relationship with each of our suppliers, since we are as passionate about the people we work with as we are about making beautiful shoes!
Silvia Lago is no ordinary fashion house, we are a for-purpose brand on a mission to elevate, inspire and empower women around the world. We are committed to helping women achieve their potential, by offering elegant and comfortable high heels that help them be confident and beautiful. Welcome to our celebration of womanhood and women’s leadership!

How is the fitting of the Lagos?
We use Spanish sizing. In general the width is generous and the length is slightly longer.
Do Lago shoes enlarge with use?
Our shoes enlarge with use to adapt to your feet, but only in width, never in length. The leather is soft and does naturally crease to improve fit.
I have narrow feet
To make sure your feet stays in place you should always opt for models that hold on in the instep with a strap or shoelaces.
I have delicate feet
Our shoes are made with very soft leathers that will adapt to your feet and our lasts are quite generous. However, we recommend you to choose styles which are plain in the bunion area, without overlaps, straps, or ornaments and avoid very high heels.
I have one foot smaller
That's pretty common. Avoid pumps or shoes that do not hold on the instep. You can add a 1 or 2 mm half insole (whatever thickness you need) inside the shoe of your smaller foot until it feels right.
