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".

Cute Shoe but... the ankle strap is very short. It barely fit around my ankle and I have slim ankles. Therefore I had to return, but I did keep the Carina with the traditional ankle wrap.

Mistakenly got the 80mm wedge instead of the 60mm. These were too tall for me. Also not comfortable and a little narrow. Returned.

This shoe is so cute! The only problem is the back heel cup just didn't fit. It could be because I'm short and/or have flat-feet. If not for that, the perfect summer shoe.

They are adorable and exactly what I need for days when your piggies cannot get out! They are a little heavy for the straps, but I think that is expected given the fabric heel enclosure. I do wish that a second fabric tie was included as I can see these getting tired and worn first. Wore to an art exhibition sending for 4 hours and feet remained happy! :)

Everything fit fine (width and length) but the ankle strap was at least 1 1/2" too short (and I have thin ankles!!!) Bummer bc they are so cute!!

I’m usually a 5.5 and I ordered these in a 5 despite other reviews saying to order up if in between sizes. They fit perfectly! Super comfortable and give me great height.

Well made and I love the v cut of the toe box. Unfortunately for me, the toe box was a bit too deep (I have very low volume, narrowish feet), and yet somehow the heel felt a bit too shallow. Would’ve loved to have kept them!

I ordered these because I’m always looking for a platform and block heel, but the shoes were crazy narrow. I don’t ever need to buy wide shoes and regular width shoes always fit me. So that makes me think these are only for people with extremely narrow feet. Sadly I had to return them immediately.

Great shoe for summer. These are flattering, well-made, with wide ribbon laces that add to support.

My heels slipped out so the back was too big and the toe section was buckling and didn’t lie flat. Looks very low quality - returning

Super comfortable and cute, especially for such a high wedge. The platform helps keep them comfy, really love these!

Very cute. but runs large. Also not the most comfortable and rubs on my toes. I always have to bandage my toes up before wearing even if only for 10!min

Although the shoe fit, when tightly tied, the back kept shifting and slipping off the heel.

Difficult to review because the left toe box was very big (I could pull my foot out) and the right was ok...I just couldn't walk with the left one so loose. And now they're out of my size.

Lovely shoes. I usually wear a 42 but - depending on the brand - a 41 will sometimes work, so I took my chances. These were incredibly small, I could not even get them onto my foot. Definitely order up!
