These antique cloth and leather boots can be worn at three different heights; ankle boots, hiker boots and high top boots, with sturdy press-studs to fasten at each height.
The leather components are breathable and water-resistant; a leather upper and leather reinforcements where the laces thread, plus a full leather layer encompassing the base of the shoe and stitched by hand around the sole in the traditional moccasin style for extra strength and durability.
Handmade by an Indigenous Guatemalan family of shoe-makers with three generations of experience, the soles are innovatively made from recycled car-tyres and are not only glued but stitched on through every layer of the sole. The foam inner-sole incorporated into the internal layers provides maximum comfort while remaining a light weight shoe perfect for travel, walking and dancing.
These shoes are washable and stretch in both width and length so we recommend to begin with a snug fit. They suit both wide and narrow feet.
Perfect for lovers of sustainable, ethical and fair-trade products, the antique hand-embroidered blouses with Mayan symbology that are recycled become a "one of a kind" shoe with a unique combination of external and internal fabric and create a completely unique pair of shoes unlike anyone else in the world. They are sure to become your favourite choice of comfortable shoe wear all year round.
