These somewhat amazing slip-ons are not just pretty but also kind to nature.
On our minds is unisex, seasonless Spanish shoe brand Petrucha. Hailing from Alicante, the brand embraces a holistic local mindset when sourcing materials and (ethically) producing the shoes entirely in their workshop. The shoes have a thorough raw and minimal aesthetic reflecting Petrucha’s selection of natural materials and dying techniques along with the founders’ quest to create a “sustainable footwear label that works as a vehicle for change”. We love these raw-edged slip-ons. Browse the current collection here.
