Alpargata Shoes in Navy

£16.67 (ex. VAT)

By 1850 Buenos Aires had more then 50 families that hand made alpargatas for a living. Originally made as a poor man’s shoe, loved by rural workers for the comfort and versatility of alpargatas, the mythical gauchos of Argentina spread the popularity of the shoe. In their travels throughout Patagonia, the “Pampas”, and the Andes, the gauchos walked on foot and rode on horseback, always wearing alpargatas.

Without knowing it the alpargatas were born environmentally friendly too; made of more than 99.7% natural fibers, the upper is made from 100% Cotton and the sole made of 100% Jute.
