Initially a cultural staple of the Argentine Gauchos, the origins of the alpargatas – a lightweight canvas shoe - dates back to the 1830’s. We can thank Argentina’s Paez shoes for making these comfy yet stylish shoes accessible to us here at Flechada in the coolest colors and patterns available. They are a comfortable shoe made of soft canvas and soft cotton lining, with a cushioned leather insole and EVA rubber sole for traction.
