Yes, Pons Avarcas are handcrafted in Menorca. Only genuine avarcas carry the "Avarca de Menorca" tag, a collaborative effort between the local government and the shoemaker association to ensure the highest quality standards while preserving and protecting the artisans and tradition of the island.
Made since 1945 on the Spanish island of Menorca, Pons Avarcas are ethically made by hand with sustainability and longevity in mind. The raw materials are all sourced locally in Spain, including the rubber sole (the classic style features a sole made from 10% recycled tires) and the high-quality natural full grain leather— which is sourced from ethically raised livestock. Available in 40+ different color ways, Pons are chrome dyed to strict EU REACH standards. The Pons workshop (in Ciutadella) is owned and operated by the third-generation of the Pons family and employs about a dozen local craftspeople, some who have spent their entire adult lives honing their shoemaking craft.

We recommend that you check our size conversion charts for specific measurements of the style and model you are interested in. Please note that our Pons Avarcas and Laro Espadrilles have different sizing charts and recommendations as they are two different brands:
• Pons Avarcas: Since the leather will stretch slightly with wear, most of our half-size wearing customers find success choosing the smaller of the two sizes they are in between. However, we encourage you to compare your foot measurement with our sizing chart to make the best choice.
• Laro Espadrilles: Most of our half-size wearing customers find success choosing the larger of the two sizes they are in between.However, we encourage you to compare your foot measurement with our sizing chart to make the best choice.
