Castell Spanish Espadrille, handmade leather and suede shoes. Our shoes are boat friendly, made with non-skid, non-skuff, natural leather soles. We use Spanish and Italian high quality leathers to create a casual and elegant mediterranean style shoe.
Castell stands for a long lineage of shoemakers.
A united family which started an artisanal workshop in which its members although at times lacking in technological knowhow put their mind and spirit in cutting, sewing and assembling.
The "Made in Spain" label is the legacy of the country's shoemaking tradition. In large part, this quality label owes itself to the small island of Minorca, where the show industry has a long and dominant history. In fact, at times, it was the only industry on the island. Of all Minorca's footwear manufacturers, Castell has distinguished itself since 1985 by offering a product line which continues to uphold the methods, essence and spirit of the artisan tradition.
From its origins on the boundaries of a rural estate to the numerous presence with wholly owned shops in and out of Menorca, Castell's unadulterated passion for the Mediterranean lifestyle is clearly proven, be it expressed through its avarcas of its flourishing new lines of self designed footwear.
One of the distinguishing features of Castell is fidelity to the craft. Almost thirty years after its founding they still exist much of the manufacturing techniques that have singled out their products over three decades. The technology supports increased production, but in no case replaces the delicate processes that only human hands are able to culminate.
