All about Castañer

Castañer sandals, Castañer shoes and Castañer boots evoke a playful and fun attitude to your wardrobe. Castañer’s wedge sandals, from a reasonable 5 cm to a dizzying 11 cm, are mostly wrapped in hemp rope as well as these unusual materials: woven straw, rattan and wicker. Castañer has been known to also combine materials such as seersucker or patent leather into their sandals.

History 1927 The Castañer Company, as it is today, was founded in 1927 by Luis Castañer and Tomas Serra. It was the developing result of an initial espadrille workshop, whose business goes back in their family to the year 1776, when the first espadrille maker Rafael Castañer was born. They are very proud to have spanned four different centuries.

1936 The company went through many difficult times, such as the Civil War in 1936, when it was nationalized because its production was of military interest. Soldiers were sent to the front lines wearing espadrilles and in the 1950’s the company faced a major crisis with the arrival of vulcanization and injection and the creation of the well-known 'Chirucas'.

1960 In the mid 1960’s, with their parents, Lorenzo and Isabel, already running the business, and during a Trade Fair in Paris, the foremost designer of the time, YSL, ordered a high-heeled espadrille, a real novelty which had never been produced in all the centuries of the espadrille existence. This was the launching point of the company, as it is today. In fact, the espadrille suddenly changed from a shoe for country folk to a luxury fashion footwear article.

2006 Through those years, Castañer has been gradually growing and the collection now includes Castañer sandals, Castañer shoes and Castañer boots. Exports to countries such as Japan, the EU, the USA, Switzerland, South Africa, Hong Kong, Taiwan etc., currently make up 60% of their output. Their articles are bought by high fashion customers in these countries and they are found in the wardrobe of film stars, glamorous ladies and famous people. Moreover, Castañer manufactures for some of the most prestigious brand names in the world of fashion and luxury products.

Castañer has reinvented the espadrille, a 200 year old item, and kept it fresh in a time when everything seems "so 10 minutes ago".

These may work for someone but not for me. They are well made and the heel height is perfect but they are made for a slim foot and do not stretch as the front is not just cotton. The front buckles funny do to it not being able to stretch at all. The Saludos brand works much better for me and has a very flattering design.

Gorgeous - statement shoe. A bit too high for me, I have a high arch and wide foot - needed more support to walk in these. Really good looking shoes too!

I returned these. They were very heavy and felt clunky. The style was OK, just the fit was small and the heaviness of the shoe would have made it hard to wear.

I dont know what is wrong with these shoes. The front is very narrow, but it did fit my foot (barely). My feet are normal (not wide or narrow). I could walk in them. They were not staying on my foot. I am 6.5 (in some shoes 7) and I got 7. The ties dont stay up. I just gave up and returning them. I would have kept it, it the fit was good. I LOVE the color. I bought it in Verde Agua.

Although these wedges don't come in narrow, the medium width is not bad. They are wearable!

I love these shoes! I have been looking for a neutral wedge espadrille that is not too high, but not too low either. I have bunions and have a hard time finding attractive and comfortable footwear that doesn't look dowdy. These shoes seem well made and look high-end. I anticipate getting lots of wear out of them this summer - they will go with everything!

Disappointed in the color--very "stone-washed" and faded. Just not what I was looking for.

It runs a bit generous. I sized down. It is a great classic espadrille. They loosen up with wear.

I normally wear 7.5 in shoes, so I ordered a 38. It felt really big, so I had to exchange it for a 37, which fits perfectly.

I typically wear an 8 1/2 and order the suggested 39 for a size 9...so 1/2 size up but this shoe was still way to small. I hope to order the 40 if available and maybe it will fit

Great looking shoes, high quality fabric and no- slip bottom. At first felt bit stiff, but after wearing in the house they started loosening up. Tip: learn to tie them properly, they become even more comfy. They pretty much go with everything in my closet, and the price was justified.
