The origins of Castañer date back to 1776 with the birth of Rafael Castañer, the first espadrille maker of the family. Having evolved from the once small workshop, today’s company was founded in 1927 by Luis Castañer and his cousin Tomás Serra. The firm lived through a number of vicissitudes, such as the Spanish Civil War in 1936; since soldiers were sent to the front wearing espadrilles, Castañer’s products were considered of military interest and the company was nationalized.

At the end of the 60s, Lorenzo and Isabel Castañer (the next generation) met Yves Saint Laurent in Paris who commissioned the first wedge espadrille in history. With this great innovation, which transformed a peasant’s shoe into a fashionable luxurious consumer good compatible with the runway, the brand took off. Since then, Castañer has seduced other first-rate fashion houses.

The espardenya or espadrille has also established its iconic presence in cultural imagery, having been the shoe of choice of intellectuals, of Hollywood actors such as Gary Cooper and Grace Kelly, of Jackie Kennedy, and of artists like painter Salvador Dalí.

At No Man Walks Alone, we fully embrace the summery spirit of wearing espadrilles in the sunniest weathers. Whether on our way to the beach in shorts, or wearing relaxed linen trousers and a popover, a handsome pair of well-made espadrilles strike the right balance between casualness and sophistication.
