With The Help Of Spanish Royalty, We Found The Perfect Everyday Sandal

There's something special about traveling to a foreign country, stumbling upon an unexpected treasure — a locally crafted pair of shoes perhaps — and bringing it on home. Now, imagine continuing to have access to your new favorite item without paying for airfare.
Enter PONS Avarcas, the label bringing handmade artisan sandals from Menorca, Spain, to the U.S.A. When co-founder Noelia Pahissa first arrived in the United States, she was inundated with compliments surrounding her Avarcas. Originally a shoe for Menorcan workers, Avarcas sandals have since gained the support of Spanish royalty and become a symbol of the Menorcan identity. And we can see why!
PONS Avarcas' newest collection features flat and platform styles in a variety of colors perfect for upcoming warmer months. They're timeless, comfortable, and available for men, women, and children. You'll want to grab a pair for everyone in your family.
