The cyclist shoe
At Cultura we are proud to give back to life a forgotten footwear model, a shoe that was created during the arrival of bicycles in Spain around 1920. A design that was lost during Spanish civil war.
In the early twentieth century, mallorcan shoe craft masters designed this shoe for an optimal bike ride:
-No laces to avoid entanglements with the wheel.
-Organic cotton for an optimal breathability.
-Thin and flexible out-soles made by recycled motor bike tires.
-Low heels for pedal grip.
-Natural leather to protect toecap.
-Anatomic leather insoles for a healthy walk.
After a deep research at the abandoned shoe ateliers around Mallorca, CULTURA found some traces of the missing bike shoe: sketches, forms and pattern cut-outs. And in collaboration with the last artisans on the island, CULTURA give it back to life.
An easy slip-on shoe handcrafted with natural materials that will take care of your feet. Optimal for a bike ride or to stroll in the summer time. You can wear it without socks and enjoy the feeling of organic cotton caressing your skin. No smelly feet! We assure it (only synthetic materials does).
