abarcas from Menorca - Minorca Island

abarcas from Menorca

shops all around the island: Abarcas

What to buy: You may see these even before arriving to the island. We noticed that many of our fellow travelers on the plane from Barcelona to Menorca were wearing “abarcas”, the typical Menorca's shoes. So, it's not a touristy thing, most locals wear these, men, women and children. Fashionable, very comfortable, and at reasonable prices. They came in all colors you can imagine!

Curiosity: the abarcas' soles were traditionally made with rubber from discarded tyres. Now some still are made this way.
