Alpargata Shoes from Paez
Alpargata Shoes from Paez

Here’s a fun, funky, fair-trade abiding shoe company called Paez (pronounced as ‘pice’), which specializes in a comfortable shoe named alpargatas!

Alpargatas, which are a lightweight shoe made out of canvas, are said to have been brought to Argentina about 1830 by Basque immigrants. (Paez alledges that alpargatas originated in Egypt as a sandal.)

Originally available only in black and white, Paez alpargatas now come in a rainbow of colors—as they are manufactured totally in Argentina.
