Our Story

Our Story

High end. Fair price.

We are Maguire, an independent women-led company on a mission to make quality fashion footwear fair and accessible.

We design original shoes and accessories, hand-pick craft manufactures around the world to produce them. Then we sell directly to you through our website, pop-up shops, and concept stores for half the price of our competition.

Maguire was founded in Montreal by sisters Myriam and Romy with the intent to shake up an industry that has remained static for too long. Re-thinking everything from design to supply chain to in-store shopping, our founders leveraged their industry work experience and a unique perspective to do everything in a fresh new way.

From launch in 2016 with one product and a website, to today with stores in two cities and sales in ten countries, we continue our work to make luxury friendly, make exclusivity accessible, and to make fashion fair.

Happy shopping! :)

“Everywhere we shopped, it was a choice between quality or affordability. Why can’t we have both?”

Original Designs

Designed by ourselves in Montréal, we love to create original classics that you will actually wear and cherish for a long time. Our philosophy? Essential, not boring.

Ethical Craftsmanship

Our shoes are produced by small family-owned manufacturers around the world. We personally visit every factory and meet directly with owners and staff to ensure that our values and standards of quality are reflected throughout our supply chain.

Transparent Prices

We believe in an informed, conscious consumer. Other shoe brands might not want to reveal how little of their unit cost is actually materials and manufacturing, but we have nothing to hide! We show you the production costs on each product page, you know exactly what you get for your dollar.

Direct to Consumer

We work directly with manufacturers and sell directly to you, our customers. We cut out agents, brokers, distributors, and other middlemen who inflate the price at retail. Many of our products are made in the very same factories who produce for other top names, but we sell at half their prices. This means you get the same great quality at a fair price.

New Retail Experience

Step into a Maguire boutique and you are greeted with our signature wall-to-wall shoe closet: All our models in every size at your fingertips to browse and try on at your leisure. When you’ve made your choice, we’ll fetch a fresh pair from the stockroom for you to take home. It’s fun, clean, and efficient.
