About Us

 Antipodas Brands

Based in Sydney Northern Beaches, and originally from Spain, we started importing avarcas as The Beach Paddle Co in 2016.  After a few successful seasons and expanding our presence in Australia through our stockists, we recently changed our name to Antipodas Brands to reflect our focus into top quality shoe brands 100% made in Spain. 

We carefully select brands that have a unique style and that offer a comfortable quality experience to our customers. Our aim is to keep bringing the true spirit of the Mediterranean to Australia and to grow by innovating with new footwear brands and fashion accessories.

We are always on the hunt for quality and unique fashion brands from the Antipodas to bring into Australia. We currently import 3 brands, which use top quality materials with different features to cater for everyone.


Founded in 2015 by the Lucas brothers who have 25 years experience in the shoe business, their aim is to maintain the traditional process of handcrafting all their shoes whilst incorporating new trends and colours to go with today's fashion.

Popa has their own 2000-square-metre factory in Alicante, Spain which enables the Lucas brothers complete control over the details, design, materials and production of their shoes and bags.

Their goal is to bring style and comfort in one shoe. Their style ranges from avarcas, to menorquinas, to slides, they got the uniqueness that you are looking for.


The brand was born with the purpose of changing the concept of luxury. A concept which reflects and combines maximum comfort, quality and pricing.

Their shoes exude elegance, sophistication, comfort and quality -  a true concept of luxury. 

The Frambua flats are uniquely designed, hand-manufactured, packaged in Spain and then shipped all over the world, including right here, Australia!


Manufactured by their own craftsmen, which involves many processes mostly by hand using naturally tanned leather and recycled materials. 

The leather selected by Marila is completely organic and tanned with natural dyes with lead or heavy metals.Talk about reliability, sustainability and durability.

Marila is synonym to comfort, whether is heels, wedges or flats wearing them is a unique experience. If you need comfort without compromising style in one brand, Marila is your top choice.
