As Seen On

    by Misty White Sidell

    Larroudé, the fast-growing midpriced footwear brand, is plotting further growth.

    Husband-and-wife brand founders Ricardo Larroudé and Marina Larroudé, the latter of whom was the fashion director of Barneys New York, have opened their own factory in Brazil to facilitate faster production and sample development time lines.


    Speaking from a conference room in the factory, the Larroudés — both of whom are Brazilian and founded their line in 2020 with a business plan based upon Brazilian production — laid out their next moves.

    “We started small and are growing fast — we’re selling between 100,000 and 200,000 pairs a year and want to get to half-a-million quickly. From there we want to reach one million. We want to be the new, innovative American footwear brand and opening our own factory will allow us to have hands-on control of development,” said Ricardo Larroudé.
