Launched in February 2018, Zapateria opened its doors to the public and started offering workshops to would be designers, shoemakers and entrepreneurs only in the last quarter of that year. The February launch was attended by who's who in the shoe industry such as shoemaker  Kiko Medina, as well as celebrities like actress Charo Santos, and Congressman (and Former Marikina City Mayor) Bayani Fernando (pictured below with Rico), an indication of how everyone acknowledged Zapateria's importance in shaping the future shoe entrepreneurs, as well as in injecting a fresh blood into the industry.

Since it opened its doors to the public in the last quarter of 2018, Zapateria has collaborated with various young talents in the shoe industry, notably Maco Custodio, who launched his Lalapatos brand recently. Maco used preconsumed foil (“mga pambalot ng sitsirya” was how Unyx described the upcycled materials) and leather that were woven together by hands. This early, the shoes have already attracted a lot of interest.
