The original Avarcas by RIA – now in a wonderfully decorated anniversary edition.
Glamorously bejewelled with gemstones. For mother and daughter.
The airy “Menorcan sandal” with good support and a secure tread is the typical summer shoe of the Balearics. While many producers today make similar-looking models cheaply in the Far East, the original is
handmade on Menorca – currently in the third generation of production.
The Menorcan family business RIA was founded in 1947, and was the first to be certified by the island authorities to be the original Avarcas de Menorca. The contemporary colours and special editions such as this “Bling” model – sandals with sparkling gemstones – make the classic sandal popular with more fashion-conscious fans.
Well aired and still appropriate.
The open toe allows fresh air to your feet, but it is still suitable for wear anywhere as your toes are adequately covered up – and your foot is largely protected from the sun. The seamless heel strap ensures a pressure-free fit.
Colour: Ecru/gold/violet. Upper: Cowhide leather. Soft, bare feet friendly leather insole. Flexible rubber outer sole.
