Fernando Echeverria is an Ecuadorian shoe designer and shoemaker based in Prague. Since 2014 Fernando Echeverria has been running his studio for shoes and bags there. For his extravagant shoe concepts, he uses traditional techniques of shoe making and leather processing, which he learned from shoemakers and craftsmen in Prague and Florence.

His award-winning shoes have been shown at design and fashion weeks in Europe and America.
