UNISA, QUALITY AND EXPERIENCE
Unisa started life in Spain during the 70’s. Initially a footwear export business selling products to the USA, shortly afterwards they began to develop as a thorough women’s footwear company both Spain and all of Europe. This shift took place after the meeting of two businessmen: Carlos Musso and Antonio Porta. These two highly experienced footwear manufacturing managers based in Elda had already created several new brands. Supported by tradition, they laid the foundations of a new venture exporting their products to the European continent. Elda became the cornerstone of all their operations.
UNISA WITHIN EUROPE
1989 sees the incorporation of UNISA Europa as a separate brand from the American partner, along with the creation of the first European collection, in a bid to appeal to the Old Continent’s taste. UNISA then began its pursuit for a new, refined and unique approach. They started being marketed alongside the big-name brands for the first time. They were particularly well received in the German and French markets and started becoming known throughout Europe. From this moment, their plans for expansion had no limits. Sales from their collections, manufactured in Spain, rocketed and the brand made their way into the best European multi brand retailers.
COMMITMENT TO FUSION IN FASHION
Unisa chooses a team of designers from all over the world to create their European collections. The company’s philosophy is a commitment to cultural fusion and an ongoing renewal of ideas and designs adapted to each season’s trends. Every care is taken in the ideas process and when preparing the prototypes at their Elda workshops, using traditional methods prior to final manufacturing.
TECHNOLOGY FOCUSED ON FOOTWEAR
Unisa’s main commitment is towards comfort. The company’s labs carry out daily experiments aimed at producing comfortable, lightweight shoes with better adapted lasts, in order to manufacture trendy but also practical footwear. A perfect combination between footwear technology and fashion. UNISA products are designed with the modern woman in mind, who not only looks after her appearance but also needs a type of footwear for everyday use.
A shoe that can be used to cross the street, attend a meeting, jump on the tube, etc. all the way to a party or a date. And for that reason, we have adopted a high-quality sports footwear feature: TPU soles. This provides countless advantages making it anti-slip, ideal for rainy days, lighter, more resistant and flexible in any weather conditions without static electricity. Even platform shoes evolve to a new concept, thanks to the flexibility of TPU soles.
All footwear is manufactured based on the models and raw materials sent to our “shoe labs” in our Elda headquarters. Leather, the most important raw material for manufacturers, is obtained from the best Italian, Spanish and Indian suppliers, and is selected after thorough investigations on the best quality leathers in the world. Prototypes are subject to constant resistance and flexibility tests and are not approved until their quality and comfort have been fully proven.
