The Menorcan "Avarca" sandal is perhaps the most well known piece of footwear to come out of the Balearic Islands. In fact these sandals are loved in so many places, that in each they call them by a different name; albarcas, avarcas, menorcan, esparteñas, queras, mallorquinas, palowers ... an infinity of names! and it's hardly surprising! It is such a comfortable and versatile shoe that we can't help feeling proud these traditional sandals were born here.
This is our "Porc Negre" Collection. Why the name? The Black Pig or "porc negre" as we call it here, is our native pig, for whom we have great affection and so we named our collection of emblematic Pitiusa island footwear in its honour.
Because not everyone can wear the same kind of footwear, we have created this abarca sandal with a wedge, perfect for women who spend many hours on their feet. These menorquinas are ideal for lumbar rest and prevent you from putting too much strain on your legs.
The cowhides are still very soft and flexible, stained in basic colours such as natural, white, navy blue or mole, also known as taupe. The micropore soles have a small curvature in the area of the bridge, which is not only aesthetic but also functional, balancing your body weight onto your feet.
