“I usually couldn’t help noticing when someone wore a wrong pair of shoes or when even the right pair lacked the artistic luster it should possess. So we got to work and began researching. The more we researched the more excited we became at the endless possibilities in a single pair of shoes” — Kehinde. Co-founder, Karpos Shoes.
We observed that for a lot of Nigerians, their shoe always seemed to be the least exalted part of their outfit, except it was a pair of flashy sneakers that were made in China or probably sent by a relative that lived overseas.
This isn’t necessarily because they have no interest in their shoes, but rather it seemed to be a case of the shoe not being worth showing off it wasn’t a foreign brand. Truly, a lot of locally made shoes are mostly limited and seemed to have so little.
As a result, many Nigerian-made shoes began using foreign brand names, in a plight to improve marketability, but not us. We want to give you made in Nigeria that you can proudly flaunt because we believe you can have it all in a single pair of shoes.
So we got to work. In 2016, we began pouring our research into remaking the identity of 9ja-made bespoke shoes, but we wanted to do so much more. In 2017, we decided to begin making ready-to-wear shoes as well and now we have taken things to the next level.
Karpos has been put all things in place and is now ready to launch Patina in Nigeria all because we want to change the notion of a Made-in-Nigeria pair of shoes. Now you can wear a Made-in-Nigeria brand with pride.
A storm’s been brewing over the horizon for some time now. It’s finally here!

“I believe this journey has been one of discovery. Our love for shoes has driven us beyond our limits.” — Taiwo (Co-founder, Karpos Shoes)
