Vagabond was founded in the late 60’s and originally only produced men’s shoes. So much has happened since. In the 80’s Vagabond’s young entrepreneurs-to-be fell in love with the brand and were entrusted with its transformation. In the beginning the design office was located in Portugal and in Italy, close to the world’s best knowledge of shoemaking. In 1993 Vagabond moves back to Varberg, Sweden, to set up a full workshop for prototypes, most likely one of its kind in Northern Europe.
Today Vagabond is both women and men and distributes a great looking shoes and leather goods in more than 42 countries over the world. About 2,5 million pairs of shoes to be exact. Our origin is Sweden but we aim to feel at home everywhere we go. Our concept stores are proudly representing us in places like Stockholm, Berlin, Helsinki, London, Warsaw and Moscow. Fantastic shoe fashion stores are representing us in a lot of other places among them London, Paris and New York.
Marie Nilsson Peterzén, Co-founder and Creative Director, about the future: "We choose our own path and follow our own believes. This is possible with the skills gathered to develop our product, producing it and bringing it to the consumer. The key to success is definitely our staff and our way to always learn from new insights, still keeping the course we were aimed for.
