Elina Zofa Dobele

Spotlight on the artist...

The practicing architect Elina Zofa Dobele lives and works in Riga, Latvia and also designs beautiful conceptual footwear. Her outstandingly comfortable shoe and boot creations for women and men alike are all hand-made by local craftsmen, skilled shoemakers who use but the finest of leather and textile materials in their constant quest for perfection.

Elina's passionate interest in design and an idiosyncratic understanding of shoe aesthetics were some of the reasons why she created her shoe brand ZoFa in late 2008. Soon after she was joined by Andrejs Ivanovs, a top-of-the-line master shoemaker contributing his vast experience in making standard as well as orthopedic master pieces. ( www.zofa.eu )
