Avarcas are a traditional footwear of Menorca, Spain. Menorca is the second largest island of the Balearic Islands, located in the Mediterranean. It is a highly desirable place to visit for its picturesque landscape: turquoise waters and a charming countryside peppered with white stucco houses.
Menorca is dry and hot in the summertime. The first avarcas were created over a century ago for farmers working its arid land. Crafted from all-natural leather and recycled tires, they were designed to keep farmers’ feet dry, comfortable, and protected. Our Classic style most closely resembles these earliest avarcas however we also stock several varieties of the Classic Avarcas including Peekaboos, Orthotic, and Wedges. The eco-friendly style has a sole made exclusively from recycled tires. All Shoeq Avarcas – for women, men, and children– pay homage to the authentic Menorcan Avarca while serving as a go-to accessory to all those who love enduring style.
AUTHENTIC - AVARCA DE MENORCA LOGO
Look always for the Avarca de Menorca Logo. Nowadays, due to its popularity, some manufacturers have come up with many fake imitation Avarcas that are far from the authentic, artisan and top quality measures and materials used in the genuine Avarcas. The local goverment (Consell Insular) and the Shoemaker Association of Menorca (Associació de fabricants del Calçat de Menorca), in order to protect the traditional avarcas handcrafted in the island, have developed the sign "Product of Menorca" that ensures the highest quality standards and the authenticity of the avarcas sandal while preserving and protecting the artisans and tradition of the island. You can be assured that all Avarcas sold at Shoeq are authentic!
