ANGULUS is a family run company that was founded over 115 years ago in Copenhagen, Denmark. Making high quality shoes for the quality-conscious customer, that are not only beautiful to look at but also offer unparalleled comfort.
Originally founded in 1904 by Willy Madsen’s father, who owned a cobbler’s shop on Nørrebrogade. Willy was a teacher and disagreed with the pointed shoes that many children wore at that time. He thought they were both unhealthy for growing feet and hindered natural movement. In 1928, Willy astounded the Danish footwear industry with his new foot-formed shoes, developed in collaboration with doctors and physiotherapists.
Eventually, in 1949, Willy employed a leather buyer by the name of Roland Dawe. In the years that followed, he travelled across Europe in search of quality leather. Roland had an eye for quality and also for the handsome foreign shoes he saw.
Today ANGULUS shoes is a proud family owned company with Roland Dawe’s son and grandson, Christian and Sebastian Dawe, working side by side developing the ANGULUS company.
The shoes are designed in Copenhagen and manufactured in Portugal, where 130 dedicated shoemakers run the factory.
Made in Portugal.
