Classic Avarcas (also known as abarcas and Menorquinas) are a traditional footwear of Menorca, Spain. The first avarcas were created over a century ago for farmers working the hot arid land in the summer time. Crafted from all-natural leather and recycled tires, they were designed to keep farmers’ feet dry, comfortable, and protected.
Pons Classic style most closely resembles these earliest avarcas and are our most popular style. Each shoe is handcrafted in the Pons factory in Minorca by the Pons shoe artisans and carries the stamp of Authenticity from the Minorcan government.
Our Classics come in a huge variety of colours - metallics, glitters, snakeskins, textile prints, leather classics. Most of our classics come in matching Mummy and Me sizes for the whole family.
