About us


Michel Marbella is the premier local, independent Espadrilles brand in Marbella, Spain.

Family-owned and founded by two designers, Karina M, and her daughter, Victoria G, our journey began over 20 years ago.



Having found a gap in Marbella, the demand grew so fast that in 2015 the brand established a flagship store right in the heart of Casco Antiguo.

Michel Marbella is inspired by the laid-back Mediterranean lifestyle, mixed with a twist of tradition and heritage. The collection of high-end, timeless pieces is designed for wearers to make their daily looks sleek yet comfortable.


Michel Marbella drops don’t follow the traditional fashion calendar. Today’s consumers have different needs and the brand has adapted to them, providing fresh new drops every quarter. Our products are sustainably crafted in La Rioja, following all the latest environmental guidance and prioritizing employee welfare. In addition, we love Mother Earth, so our brand constantly reviews its processes to make sure it is contributing to a better future, starting with fully compostable packaging whilst avoiding the use of plastic.


«We take pride in our uniqueness, ensuring control over every stage of the espadrille process—from design to sale. We are fully engaged in every aspect of the journey and delight in creating espadrilles for both ourselves and our clients.»

«Over the past 20 years, I’ve cherished the creation of wonderful memories, friendships, and shared moments with my creations. With the invaluable assistance of both my son and daughter, I’ve propelled Michel Marbella to new heights, and for that, I am immensely grateful and ready to continue every day.»
