Armando Cabral has a face you’ve probably seen before. You’ve most likely encountered it in a lookbook, fashion show, or while perusing the J. Crew catalog or webshop.

When the Portuguese model isn’t in front of the camera, he’s probably designing shoes. In 2009, he launched his namesake line of high-quality footwear. Made in Italy and sourcing luxe materials from rich leather to tough canvas, his designs range from high-top sneakers to woven derbies and hardy looking boots. Already stocked at sites like Mr. Porter, don’t be surprised if the label blows up in the coming season.
