This 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 recycled tyres.
A relaxed shoe that is the epitome of Mallorca’s way of life.

Care and storageLeather and cotton PorquerasClean with a well-wrung cloth, previously moistened with water and a few drops of ammonia. Apply some uncoloured cream to hydrate the leather. If this is the case, the jute sole can also be cleaned with a cloth dampened in water and a few drops of ammonia, rubbing the surface gently. If the sole is made from tires, no need for care, they are unsakable.
