Here at RIA Menorca we’ve been making original avarca sandals for 70 years, using a handcrafted process with meticulous attention to detail so that you can enjoy genuine quality shoes with the ‘Avarca de Menorca’ guarantee.
Established in 1947 by Bartolomé Truyol, our family business still follows the traditional manufacturing process for abarca sandals, using recycled rubber tyre for the soles. We have a wide range of over 200 avarca designs for women, men and children
One of RIA Menorca’s distinctive hallmarks is our unwavering commitment to innovation and design.
While determined to maintain the traditional essence of footwear from our island, we were the first to: create avarcas with a wedge heel; design models that adapt to the foot-shape for maximum comfort; create anatomical models with laser-embossed uppers; use viscoelastic insoles with ultra-light tread; and introduce a range of espadrilles with jute soles
