If you like Espadrilles, but don't like the look of slip-on shoes, our model BILBAO is perfect for you. This shoe combines the classic Espadrilles look with that of a sneaker.
For this model, breathable, skin-friendly, long-lasting and moisture-regulating suede is used. The sneakers Espadrilles feature three eyelets and waxed cotton laces. Furthermore, they have a breathable sole made of natural jute and a padded leather insole – this guarantees complete wearing comfort. The tip is slightly rounded.
The BILBAO Espadrilles are available in two colors that can be combined to create different styles: sometimes casual, sometimes elegant.
Espadrilles by weltenmann are not only special because there is a lot of thought and love put in the design, but also because they are created with passion. Every single pair is handmade by shoemakers in the North of Spain in a small, traditionally working factory.
Source of motivation
Bilbao is located in the North of Spain, close to the region where our manufactory is located. This industrial and harbor city is surrounded by green mountains. Today, it is also a world-famous culinary spot. The city has inspired us to design very special Espadrilles. The result is a shoe that combines tradition and modernity: the classic Espadrilles design with the modern shape of a sneaker.
Please note that our espadrilles are made of natural materials (cotton and suede) and are a little tight at the beginning. That's the way it should be. After some days wearing them, the shoes will be broken-in and will provide a perfect fit.
Bitte beachte, dass unsere Espadrilles aus natürlichen Materialien (Baumwolle und Wildleder) hergestellt sind und am Anfang etwas eng anliegen. So soll es sein. Nach einigen Tagen sind die Schuhe eingelaufen und passen perfekt.
Merci de noter que nos espadrilles sont faites de matériaux naturels (coton et cuir) et sont un peu serrées au début. C'est comme ça que ils devraient être. Après quelques jours de les avoir porté, ils auront la forme parfaite.
Ti pregiamo di notare che le nostre espadrillas sono sono fatti di materiali naturali (cotone e pelle) e sono un po’ strette all'inizio. Così deve essere. Dopo alcuni giorni che li indossi, le scarpe avranno la forma perfetta.
Por favor, ten en cuenta que nuestras alpargatasestán hechas de materiales naturales (algodón y cuero) y quedan algo justas al principio. Así es como debe ser. Después de unos días, se ajustarán a tus pies como un guante.
Care tips for cotton Espadrilles
In order to enjoy our cotton-made Espadrilles for a long time, they require a special treatment. If they get dirty, you should clean them gently and make sure the cloth or brush you use is not too wet. Please note that our Espadrilles are not suitable for the washing machine.
First use a brush (e.g. a clean toothbrush) to remove dust, sand and other superficial dirt. If there are stains or a veil of dirt, you should apply a shoe cleaning foam to the fabric. Give the shoes enough time to dry afterwards, otherwise they could lose their shape. Light-colored cotton Espadrilles can be left to dry in the sun. Colorful or dark designs should be left to dry in the shade, otherwise the color may fade.
Care tips for suede Espadrilles
As with their cotton cronies, suede Espadrilles also require special care. Many cleaning products not only remove dirt from leather, but also grease, and leather needs a layer of grease to remain in good shape.
You should remove rough dirt from your shoes with a cleaning brush or toothbrush. Then clean your Espadrilles with cleaning foam for suede shoes. This contains additional care ingredients that nourish the leather and make it supple.
No water, please! ;-)
Espadrilles are fair weather shoes and do not get along with water. However, to make sure you don't get your feet wet so quickly if it does rain unexpectedly, we recommend that you impregnate the sole every now and then.
