Why Made in Spain Matters

Why Made in Spain Matters

When I was a little girl we used to spend our summers in my grandparents’ village in the mountains of Aragón in mainland Spain.  The village was safe and small and as kids we would run around all day long in our espadrilles. The espadrilles for me have always been a staple of both comfort and summer.

 So last summer, while we were in Mallorca I realized it was time to bring those beloved espadrilles to my adopted homeland in California.  Especially when I saw the poor quality of imitation espadrilles made in China, where the natural plant based jute has been replaced with cheap plastic.

 Last September I came back from Spain with 15 samples and the consistent feedback from all my friends and colleagues was “Make them as comfortable as possible. We care more about quality and comfort than anything else.” So we worked with our manufacturer, to line the inside of our espadrilles with soft cushioned leather for extra comfort.” So If you love wearing heals, but absolutely want comfort, then try OlaSoles espadrilles.  Our wedge espadrilles will not disappoint you.

 On June 1st, 2016 we are launching OlaSoles with a limited number of styles and sizes to test the market in the United States. I am hopeful it will receive the same exciting response that my friends have shared.  If our launch is successful, we will expand to more colors and add our suede collection soon. So if you like our espadrilles, please order now as we have a very limited number of sizes in each style.

 And please feel free to share your feedback. We would love to hear from you. How is the fit, what style and color do you like the most and what else did you wish we had.  Just send your thoughts through our “Contact” form or send an email to sales@olasoles.com.

 Best,
