Avarcas Pons Vecchio Cuero (Brown) Leather Sandals
The women's Classic Pons Avarcas in brown are a great neutral. They're made from leather with eco-recycled rubber soles. Avarcas—also known as abarcas and Menorquinas—are a traditional footwear of Menorca, Spain.
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.
Made since 1945 on the Spanish island of Menorca, Pons are ethically made by hand with sustainability and longevity in mind. The raw materials are all sourced locally in Spain, including the rubber sole (made from 10% recycled tires) and the high-quality natural vecchio leather— which is sourced from ethically raised livestock.
This style runs true to US size with standard widths. Most of our half-size wearing customers find success choosing the smaller of the two sizes they are in between.
We recommend comparing your foot measurement with our sizing chart to make the best choice. Pons shoes are handmade with natural leather and they will stretch slightly as you break them in.
We recognize that everyone's two feet are different and unique to the individual. Our sizing recommendations are only suggestions, not guarantees, and it is the customer's decision of which size to purchase. We are happy to answer any questions you may have to help with your decision!
