I used to have a serious shoe addiction. I had quite a collection and style was everything. Now as a stay at home mother of four I find myself going more for comfort than style. PONS Avarcas recently sent me a pair of their Avarcas sandals and I am happy to say they offer comfort and style in one!
The Avarcas sandal was originally designed for the Menorcan workers and overtime, morphed into a symbol of the Menorca’s identity. A favorite of shoe of Spanish royalty, Avarcas sandals have more than a century of tradition and today have been reinvented as a shoe for both comfort and style. They are made using top quality materials, such as natural leather on the upper and using flexible eco-friendly recycled rubber on the sole, making them a great option for spring and summer activities under the sun.
We actually recieved a pair for myself and a pair for my six year old daughter Danica. It was hard to choose considering their large selection of colors including many solid prints, animal prints and even glittery pairs. I ultimately decided I would love a pair in black so I could wear them with more outfits. I chose the wedge in black ($85.00).
Our wedge avarca, with approximately 1 1/2 in (4.5 cm) heel, preserves the appearance of the traditional avarca, suitable for women that look for comfort without compromising a style. Handmade in Spain with top quality materials, this chic sandal has become a must have fashion accessory in Spain and throughout Europe.
I love the look of the wedge. I am fairly short and anything that gives me a little lift is appreciated. The shoes are extremely comfortable and well made. They stay on easily and are very easy to walk in. The shoes come in only whole sizes and since I am generally a 7 1/2 I ordered an 8. They fit very well, small for an 8 but perfect for me.
For Danica I absolutely LOVED the look of the Classic Style Kids Butterfly sandals ($65.00).
Flexible, durable and comfortable sandal ready for all their outdoor fun! For boys and girls, our classic avarca provides all the same features and benefits as the grown-up style but sized for your little one. Handmade in Spain with top quality materials, such as leather on the upper and lightweight rubber molds on the sole, making the avarca a trendy and functional sandal. It is stylish with comfort all day long.
The colors of the butterfly are so vibrant and beautiful. Danica absolutely loves them and loves matching me. I had a hard time picking a size for Danica. She is between a 12 and 13 right now so I requested the 13. They are quite large for her and she will be able to wear them for awhile. She agrees that they are very comfortable.
The only issue I had with either shoe is the sole of the wedges I received. The bottom of Danica’s shoe is a very nice rubber mold sole, but the wedges had a completely different sole made from a harder plastic with different molding on the soles. I find them to be a little slippery.
With such a wonderful selection of colors it would be fun to outfit the whole family with these comfortable well made shoes!
