We are delighted to introduce our new range of footwear, available from our Redchurch Street Store.
We have searched for a long time to find the right espadrilles, and we are glad to have found the perfect supplier. Although these may look similar to those available in many other high street shops, we know these are of the highest quality, hand-made in Spain in the traditional manner and authentic in every detail.
As any visitor to Barcelona knows, La Manual Alpargatera is the place to go for your espadrilles, and we are very happy to be the first British stockist of their classic artisan footwear. Established during the Civil War, La Manual have been making their espadrilles in the traditional way ever since.
Really, though, we should be calling these slippers espardenyes, after all that is the original Catalan name ( before the French corruption of espadrilles ). And as these are made in Catalonia, it is only right to give them their true title.
Espardenyes are available in sizes 39 to 44 in Natural, Navy, Black, Brown and Red.
