We started out in Largo
do Café as a shoe repair
and maintenance store,
in 1965
When we began our activities,
shoemaking was still very
rudimentary and the 
maintenance of shoes was still
very important to their wearers.

We offered fast and high-quality
repairs. With the slogan “Soles in
35 minutes, Heels in 
15,”we chose the name
Cometa (Comet) to illustrate
the speediness of our repairs.

The high standard of our work
built our reputation and allowed
us to expand our business
and we began to sell products
of selected brands.
