How to distinguish the authentic Menorcan sandals?
Although it is easy to distinguish the Ria Menorcan sandals, in the following lines you will discover how to distinguish the authentic "abarcas" from Menorca, from the rest of the imitations.
If you do not want to go wrong when buying Menorcan sandals, you just have to take into account a few details that make the difference:
- The weight: The authentic Menorcan blankets should weigh, that means that the sole is made of genuine rubber.
- The strip of the heel: It has to be reinforced, stretch it to check that it is not flexible, this way you will avoid that the strip loosens and stops holding the avarca.
- How is the back strip attached? check that the strip is inserted inside the leather of the plant, if it is not integrated to the floor of the avarca, it will bother when walking.
- The origin: Make sure that the espadrilles are actually made in Menorca, the origin is a guarantee of quality thanks to the manufacturing process.
