Let’s begin with the most creative ones.

Please welcome: Kachorovskа handmade brand

Kachorovska Company was born in 1960s in Zhytomyr. At the beginning it was just a small shoemaker’s shop. As years went by, it grew into successful family business and started making profit. In 2013 Kacharovska family introduced their own shoe line.

Because of the combination of skilled handmade craft with capabilities of modern technologies, Kachorovska’s products are one-of-a-kind. Naturally, the prices for their shoes are a bit higher than those at ordinary shops, but original accomplishment of custom orders is a tremendous bonus for those who appreciate their own uniqueness.

Other Manufacturers Worth Our Attention:
Among the variety of Ukrainian brands, the following ones can be singled out: Lider (, PYRAMIDE (, Tuto (, KASANDRA (, Roma Style ( and others.

We should point out though that consumer goods industry in Ukraine has many problems as well. Our manufacturers’ competitive ability is quite high, but they do not have enough strength to conquer contraband articles. There are tax system, payment for labor, and purchase of materials with all the consequences. In spite of all that, however, we have enough brands proudly named “Ukrainian”.

And this is no surprise, because our country is going to finally become prosperous and rich. We, the Ukrainians, should keep this in mind. We are proud to have such professionals in a range of spheres, among which footwear production is not the last one.
