Our way to help the crisis in Ukraine
At Luis Onofre we have always been aware that our success is closely linked to what is happening around the world. In fact, not only do we believe in that but also that each of us should do what we can to contribute to a better future.
When faced with the current war in Ukraine, we knew we had to help in any way we could, so we have decided to do what we do best, this time with an even better purpose.
As a gesture that symbolises an appeal for peace, Luis Onofre created a line of limited edition sandals, where all the proceeds will go towards Porto Solidário, an organisation aiding Ukrainian refugees in need of transportation.
The sandals showcase a dove, which is often seen as the ultimate symbol of peace. and were presented during the last edition of Portugal Fashion as part of our FW22 collection. During the runway show, they were used by Sasha Kholkina, a Ukrainian model represented by Elite Lisbon living in Portugal.
The PEACE sandals are limited to only 10 pairs, with a fixed cost of 500€ each. This value will revert entirely towards the mentioned organization that is connecting the Ukrainian borders to Portugal and who are delivering essential items to those who need them.
In white and gold, the PEACE sandal is more than just a shoe. In Luis Onofre’s words: “The white dove allegory as the peace messenger is the sign of hope we all need. It’s essential to minimize the pain of all those who have been impacted by this war”.
You can find the PEACE sandals exclusively at our Porto and Lisbon stores, or at www.luisonofre.com.
