Our Story

What is "Chido"?
Chido is a commonly used slang Spanish word for “cool” and that is exactly what what we have to offer. We have cool, comfortable, and fashionable sandals and shoes made from 100% natural leather. 
Our Idea
Chido Began with a simple desire for high quality shoes that are handmade, affordable and support local artisans. We created Chido focused on quality and comfort. Our belief is that you do not have to sacrifice comfort for fashion. Our shoes fit snug on your feet with different patterns and designs that allow for airflow and maximum comfort. A portion of all of our profits go to a charitable organization providing shoes for kids! 
Where It Began
The hardworking artisans who created the concept for Chido are family. Located just outside of Nayarit, we could no longer keep our beautiful creations a secret. We connected with family friends in San Diego and began building "Chido Design" to share our passion with the rest of the world! 
Our Promise
The only thing we are more passionate about than our products, are the people who support and wear our shoes. If you have a question, comment, or just want to share feedback our team is available to you. 
Perfect for a casual walks around town and perfect for a beach day! Easy to dress up or to wear casually. Our shoes are intended to be worn in all settings to never sacrifice your comfort for fashion.
Absolutely ZERO animals are injured in the process of making our shoes.
