Women’s Avarca Sandals Made of Cowhide
Menorcan classic: Avarcas
The Avarca sandal is a traditional worker's shoe, as worn by Menorcan farmers already in the 19th century. The combination of sturdy rubber sole and straps made of cowhide predestined them for the warm climate and dry, stony soil of the island. Today, the sandal has become synonymous with the Mediterranean lifestyle. In keeping with this tradition, the Castell manufactory has been producing these classic models with narrow heel straps since 1985. Characteristic of the sandal, in addition to the black tread sole made from recycled car tires and the small toe opening, is above all the extremely durable, prominent hand stitching. The white sandal is made of smooth leather, while the blue and sand-colored ones are made of suede leather. Up to size 41, the Avarcas are made on a women's last, from size 42 on a slightly wider men's last.
Since its founding over 30 years ago, the Spanish manufactory Castell Menorca has been committed to traditional shoe craftsmanship - and manufactures its sandals, as far as possible, in classic handwork. Castell also continues to produce at its namesake company headquarters to this day. With the label "Made in Spain" they carry the heritage of the island into the world. No other manufacture of Menorca holds so consistently to traditional manufacturing, local craftsmanship and the "spirit" of the Balearic Islands.
