About Us

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 accesories.

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.


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

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.

Marila is synonym to comfort, whether is heels, wedges or flats wearing them is a unique experience.
