Our Cristina sandals are the perfect option to keep your feet cool on hot summer days.*
Cristina sandals are made in the Spanish city of Elche, a place famous for its quality since the 19th century.
La Portegna leather is vegetable tanned, with a unique blend of natural tannins and compounds from flowers and tree bark. The leather is treated with olive oil to nourish it, soften it and make it more robust.
This all-natural process has two benefits: it results in beautiful-looking leather that develops a unique "patina" over time; it literally gets better with age and is undoubtedly more environmentally friendly, unlike the more widely used chrome tanning processes.
* This model has a narrow last, so we recommend a larger size.
