This shoe is new but elder too. Because it is based on the traditional majorcan “porquera”. A humble shoe that was created in the 20’s.
In those years cars begin to arrive to the island and some clever espadrille makers start using as soles the tyres of the wheels when they were worn-out.
Thus, they created a comfortable and cheap shoe using waste material. Clever people staying ahead of future environmental problems.
Here is our version that has a sole made from natural yute with a Vibram rubber protection for comfort and durability.
Brown nubuck leather and cotton.
A relaxed shoe that is the epitome of Mallorca’s way of life.

Care and storageNobuk and cotton PorquerasClean with a well-wrung cloth, previously moistened with water and a few drops of ammonia. If the stains are persistent, use a brush and clean the entire surface -leather and cotton- with water and neutral soap, then rinse and let dry. Always try to avoid wetting the sole and the shoe inside. The jute sole can also be cleaned with a cloth dampened in water and a few drops of ammonia, rubbing the surface gently.
