MENORCA, A MEDITERRANEAN JEWEL

Avarcas (also known as abarcas and Menorquinas) are a traditional footwear of Menorca, Spain. Menorca is the second largest island of the Balearic Islands, located in the Mediterranean. It is a highly desirable place to visit for its picturesque landscape: turquoise waters and a charming countryside peppered with white stucco houses.

Menorca is dry and hot in the summertime. The first avarcas were created over a century ago for farmers working its arid land. Crafted from all-natural leather and recycled tires, they were designed to keep farmers’ feet dry, comfortable, and protected. Pons Classic style most closely resembles these earliest avarcas. The eco-friendly style has a sole made exclusively from recycled tires. All Pons avarcas – for women, men, and children– pay homage to the authentic Menorcan avarca while serving as a go-to accessory to all those who love enduring style.
