This season Toni Pons increases its Orígens and Toni collections, with the addition of a new Menorquines line, which complements the brand's wide range of espadrilles.
The Menorquines or abarcas are typical footwear from Minorca that come from the rural world of the island. The terrain of Minorca is very stony, so the workers of the land needed a resistant footwear while flexible. The material used for the sole is the rubber tire. From the 60s, this footwear, used until that moment by country people, was transformed into a summer footwear, very popular both among Minorcans and tourists who visited the island.
Nowadays the abarcas have become a must on summer footwear and, although they still preserve their original style, their designs incorporate the latest trends in materials and colors.
In the Spring Summer 2019 collection by Toni Pons we can find a wide variety of menorquines for women, in different colors, materials or heights.
MAO-N and MAO-P styles correspond to the most classic designs of abarcas, elaborated in Nubuck leather and leather respectively.
With the same design of flat menorquina, MAO-F style is presented in leather, with an original multicolored mosaic and MAO-T is made of polka-dot leather.
On the other hand, INCA-N style is made of leather and it has a 4cm wedge, a perfect height for the everyday.
For the most daring, we present some menorquinas’ models with a 5cm flatform sole. SAURA-N, incorporates the jute braid in the sole and SOLLER-P and SOLLER-PM styles combine the black and white in their designs and also in the sole.
