      A little history on the espadrille!

      The first espadrilles were simple, practical shoes worn by peasants, miners and soldiers to protect their feet. They were appreciated for their lightness, comfort and ease of manufacture. Espadrilles have evolved over time from work shoes to fashion accessories. During the 20th century, espadrilles grew in popularity around the world, thanks in particular to film and fashion personalities who adopted them. Important personalities like Grace Kelly or Pablo Picasso contributed to the popularization of this shoe, which quickly became a symbol of relaxation and casual elegance. The espadrille is today an emblematic shoe, which embodies the summer spirit and the values of Basque culture.

      The rope in all its forms at Soka

      The espadrille is at the heart of the Soka collection. The shop uses natural materials, such as rope, jute and hemp, to create quality products. The concept is simple: anything can be done with rope. Thus, Soka offers sandals and espadrilles of different types, such as wedges, flats, canvas, nubucks, hooks...

      Soka is espadrilles made in Mauléon

      Soka collaborates with eco-responsible espadrilles brands and also manufactures its own models in Mauléon. An espadrille made in the Basque Country made according to traditional know-how and quality materials for a robust, modern and colorful espadrille.

    Quite exceptional experience: we bought espadrilles for my husband and the sewing dropped very quickly. While we live in Aix, we received a new new pair a few days after our complaint. Very nice commercial gesture that makes us enthusiastically recommend this shop and its adorable owner.
