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".

These shoes are surprisingly comfortable. I wore them all day at work and they felt great. I got a lot old compliments on them and they go with just about everything I wear.

I love Castaner. This is my second pair and they are stylish and comfortable. Unfortunately this model ran smaller ( I usually wear a EU36) so I will return those. I already ordered a new pair in size EU 37 and they fit perfectly!

These are so cute and I couldn’t wait to get them. However they are so short and narrow I couldn’t get my foot in it. Sadly these will be going back

I ordered a 36 because that is my size in Birkenstock (I usually wear a 7) and they were a half size too small, will be purchasing a 37.

First of all, I love closed-toe espadrilles. They are stylish and lengths my legs. I ordered the red Carina 60mm because I have several pieces in my wardrobe that I can accessorize the red espadrille with, and the heel height is comfortable to wear to work.

zappos literally has the best shipping ever, i ordered and it came in two days! i like the shoe a lot, i would have liked a higher heels if i was following my normal taste but want to use these on a more everyday frequency. i’m a tall girl so i know the smaller heel is better.

This wedge is a bit on the heavy side for an espadrille, but it's really pretty and perfect for spring. Great with dresses and shorts. I got the pink and will probably buy a pair in tan as well.

This is a beautiful Espadrille! I bought a size 8, my foot normally runs on the wider side, but it fits comfortably in this shoe, although I do not think the shoe is wide, just a perfect medium. The heel height is so flattering and and comfortable to walk in. Material is a nice weight canvas, I took advantage of the sale and bought the azul rino, a perfect chambray blue color. I have not worn them except for trying but am already thinking I want another pair. A truly lovely quality shoe-makes my shoe loving heart sing:)

Zappos sent me the wrong shoe size than what I ordered. This is the second time this has happened within a 1 week period. I would appreciate you not sending me a shoe at all if you don't have the size that I ordered in stock. I don't have time to waste sending the shoes back! Very disappointed.

These are the most elegant and beautiful shoes I've put on my feet in a very long time! I'm very sad to have to return them. They "fit" standing, as in the dimensions appeared to be right - length is good, width fine. But my heel slipped as if I were wearing flip-flops with every step. I tightened the wrap a lot (too much actually) but my heel still raised off the shoe quite dramatically with each step. As much as I wanted to find an excuse to keep them, I just couldn't imagine how I would manage walking around in flip-flop heels.

I usually wear an 8.5, occasionally a 9. I ordered these espadrilles first in size 39. Much too small. Exchanged for a 40. A little large, not a great fit. Had to return.

The sizing on the website for this style is listed incorrectly. The 39 is not a size 9. The shoe box shows it as an 8. If you need a size 9 order a 40. I found this out ordering the denim color. I sent the peach color back because the canvas material on top was a bit thin and you could see every movement of your foot when walking. This bothered me (May not bother others). The style is very nice and a bit dressier than others - I do have them in denim and love them.

Am a traditional size 10, so ordered EU40, as the size guide indicated that would be size needed. Box said size 9, tho, so I was afraid they might be too small, which they were. My toes were pushed all the way into the closed toe, so I immediately called and was able to order the next size (EU41, which is also shown as correct size 10 on box) which I have received and very pleased with. I have very sensitive feet, and ordered to take on European vacation in few months, so breaking them in at home. They are very comfortable, height is just right. Am hoping the canvas will relax and “loosen” up a bit across top of my foot, which I expect them to. A big thank you to Zappo’s customer service people. I am new to Zappos, and this is second pair of shoes I’ve ordered and had to return/exchange, and they have been so helpful, super friendly and fast in getting the return label to me, as well as processing the replacements. Shipping is fast, too! I’m hooked :)

I’m returning because the canvas material is thin and you see the foot and toe imprints through the fabric. I have another pair in denim and it is much thicker. One more thing about sizing. In this particular style, a size 40 corresponds to a US size 9.

So comfortable! Tie the ribbons fairly tight, and the sandal will feel like an extension of the foot. Love these!

True to size- I’m glad I ordered my normal size 8 which was listed as a 38 in this shoe and usually an 8 is a 39. So I ordered the 8/38 and fits perfectly. I almost ordered a size down based on reviews and glad I didn’t because the black is now sold out. So order your normal size if for example size 8 them 8 but if you go by the euro size then if you’re a 39 do a 38.

I am a size 9 and almost always take a size 40. I had to size down to the 39 in these shoes. The fit was perfect. The height is just right.
