Are you looking for comfortable, stylish AND eco-friendly shoes? Well, we have found the perfect pair with shoes from El Naturalista, a company from Spain that focuses on handcrafted, lightweight and fashion-forward shoes that also happen to be eco-friendly.
Based in Pamplona Spain, El Nauralista is a global shoe brand inspired by nature - comfortable yet fashionable. Made from desert leather - Nubuck grain leather from the North of Spain - the tanning process used to make the shoes incorporates vegetables and minerals into the steps - making them a safe and gentle product that is also conscious of using materials from the earth. Through this process, the leather becomes brightly-colored, soft and bright that provides a unique look to your wardrobe. Each handstitched shoe is also made of 100% Natural Rubber and features a light, breathable, waterproof material that provides great comfort that is also odor free. They are also made from 100% natural jute that allow the shoes to withstand the elements such as the rain so they don't lose their shape, don't get heavy, don't smell bad, and are breathable!
Over the Spring/Summer, I have been testing out a cute (and functional) pair of espadrilles called the Senda (see pic) that I have been wearing on vacation, at events and when I am out with my kids. As someone who doesn't really wear heels, I loved how comfortable the shoes are where I felt no pressure in my heels or the balls of my feet thanks to their unique special bending system that makes the shoes incredibly flexible. They were also lightweight and went with a variety of outfits from jeans to casual summer dresses. Available in Albahaca (green), Chocolate, Ebano (black) and Viola (purple), the shoes are also incredibly fashionable with its cute peek toe and cork heel recycled that is made from waste cork shavings.
Designed for life, the stylish collection from shoes from El Naturalista are created with the earth in mind to offer you a product is comfortable, handcrafted and crafted with compassion. Now, that is a beautiful thing!
