Be free and be yourself, with BEFLAMBOYANT you can feel confident about expressing your own style, vibe and personality without compromising your commitment to animals and the environment. 

We have created unisex sneakers based on a few very simple principles: they should be vegan, sustainable, comfortable, and economical. We have a color for everyone and every situation.

We’re tired of being told what to wear; you should feel free to wear whatever you like. All our models are designed for everyone, for all those who feel identified with them, whether you’re a man or a woman.

 Our first sneakers model is the UX68. We named them after the number of our return flight from the trip where we were inspired with the idea, which we will always remember.


  •  UX68-Ocean 

  •  UX68-Leopard 

  •  UX68-Sand 

  •  UX68-Water 

  •  UX68-White 

  •  UX68-Navy 

  •  UX68-Wine 

When we found out that millions of animals are used by the fashion industry every year, we had just one goal in mind: to create cruelty-free fashion.

At BEFLAMBOYANT we feel a strong commitment to be another voice for change in the fashion industry. 

These days, we can buy all kind of things without thinking about what materials they are made of or if they might be harmful due to their materials or how they are produced. It’s very important to pay attention to what we are buying in the fashion industry because these materials will be in frequent contact with our skin. That’s why we have chosen our materials carefully for you. 

For us, transparency is fundamental. That’s why we want to tell you all about ourselves. 

The upper and lining are made of high-quality OEKO TEX and V LABEL certified microfiber.   

The inner lining is produced with zero CO2 emissions and free from chromium VI, a commonly-used chemical in the footwear industry that is considered a carcinogen and can be harmful to the skin. 


The shoe laces are 100% cotton, phthalates-free (a chemical found in many clothing items).

The sides are 50% recycled cotton, 25% virgin, and 25% organic, Global Recycled Standard “GRS” certified. 

The removable insole is 100% recycled PU and the sole is thermoplastic rubber, a 100% recyclable material.

The planet is close to reaching the point of no return. Several countries have declared an environmental state of emergency. It is time to take action.

To contribute to the fight against this disaster, we collaborate with the organization One Tree Planted to reforest areas destroyed by the wildfires in California, which has been ravaged by fire over the past few years.

Together, we will plant a tree for each pair of shoes sold. We will plant them in the areas most affected by the wildfires, where they are truly needed to return the area to its former splendor. 

To make this possible we have created the BEFLAMBOYANT project on their website.

For each pair of sneakers sold, we will add money to our project. When OneTreePlanted goes out on one of their periodic tree planting trips to California, we will donate the accumulated funds, one tree for each pair of sneakers.

You can visit our project here. In addition to buying our sneakers, feel free to donate a little extra to our project directly via the link.

If you are interested in volunteering on a tree planting trip, we can let you know when and where they will be happening via our Newsletter.

We are all now aware of the current world-wide plastic problem. We want to help reduce the senseless spread of plastic by embracing a zero-waste philosophy. You won’t have to throw anything in the trash! 

We send your sneakers in a natural jute bag which can be re-used every day, together with a plantable seed thank you card so you can create new life thanks to your purchase. To keep your BEFLAMBOYANTs from being damaged during transport, all of this arrives in a cardboard box which you can reuse or recycle in any paper or cardboard receptacle.

No more plastic!


Your BEFLAMBOYANTs are made in Felgueiras, Portugal, a small town in the Northern part of Portugal whose main industry is footwear.

After a thorough search we found a factory motivated to be a part of our project, with excellent artisans with many years of experience working under fair labor conditions and following high manufacturing standards, we have been able to verify all this on our visits.

Thank you Sara, thank you Jovan Shoes. 

This item will be unlocked once we reach our goal.  

Your BEFLAMBOYANTs are waiting for you at a special price. More than 30% off retail price! Plus everyone will receive a free natural jute bag which is useful for all kind of daily tasks. 

If you want more, you can choose a pack that comes with one of our t-shirts (limited stock).

 Each backer will be able to choose the color and size they want.

Hi, we’re Jorge and Tatiana, two Spanish entrepreneurs. We’re 28 and and 29 (90’s kids). Our roots are in Extremadura and Galicia, Cáceres and Pontevedra. Our interests, values, love, destiny, and now this project have brought us even closer together.

We want to share with you all the energy, work, and enthusiasm we have put into this adventure we’ve embarked on. Here it is: the symbol that inspired our brand, in the middle of Havana. There we discovered the Flamboyant Tree. 

Almost a year ago, we set off on a trip to Caribbean countries. It marked a before and after in the way we see the world, because we discovered this amazing tree and were inspired to create a project together and design our own sneakers brand.

The Flamboyant Tree is our image, our homage to what Havana gave to us.

We don’t want to be just another brand. We want to be the best version of ourselves, we want to adjust ourselves to each person and each moment, without leaving behind the values that drive us: the quality and simplicity of our shoes, and the whole ecosystem that surrounds our brand.


Composition: 100% cotton, plain knit, 165 g/m2 

According to the law, it may be a variation of a +/- 5% in the size of the garment.*

This project has taken over our lives for almost a year. It has been a difficult road, finding partners who share our values, goals, and who want to take a chance on us. Many thanks to all of them and special shoutout to our agency Koolbrand.

From the BEFLAMBOYANT team, we invite you to be the best version of yourself.

Join us! Be a part of the change!

Risks and challenges

We’ve faced many challenges this year. We have risked our savings to get here, in addition to investing a huge amount of our free time outside our normal jobs. Finding a factory that would take a chance on our project was the first challenge. Choosing high-quality materials that matched our brand’s values and creating an eye-catching image to identify us were also challenges that we have successfully overcome.
In regards to the future, we plan to launch a new sneaker collection, create a line of unisex clothing, and, last but not least, be a new voice in the fashion industry that will reach many people and help them to be more aware of the problems of pollution, climate change, and animal cruelty in the fashion.
