By Far

BY FAR is the Bulgarian shoe brand founded in 2016 by twins Valentina and Sabina, and their best friend Denitsa. Today, BY FAR’s founders live between Australia and Europe. Amidst their constant travels, the trio are impassioned by the potential of today’s Eastern European youth and their mutual quest for the perfect pair of shoes.

Having noticed a gap in the market for high quality yet affordable fashion footwear, the BY FAR team were originally struck by the production potential for handmade, luxury shoes in their home country. Meanwhile, a simple question would form the basis of their design: “what do we want to wear everyday?” Since BY FAR’s inception, the trio have sought to create shoes that fit into their own lives with ease, revisiting classic, unfussy shapes, whilst playing on vintage motifs updated with modern functionality. 

With a constant focus on comfort, the line presents a range of effortlessly cool, youthful styles that fuse elegance and edge into a cohesive contemporary aesthetic. One-third of the collection is now sustainable, made from dead stock leather rescued from luxury Italian factories. All BY FAR shoes are handmade in a small, family owned factory using premium Italian materials only.
