#1 About the brand

ALOHAS is the Barcelona-born fashion brand that was founded in 2015 when Alejandro Porras recreated a version of a classic Mediterranean espadrille. Since then the brand has grown to be not only a trusted brand for its designs but its sustainable approach to fashion. 

ALOHAS in comparison to other footwear brands make more collections than just your Autumn/Winter and Spring/Summer collections. They work with an on-demand, made-to-order production system which means they are more frequent but the batches are smaller. They’re made by handmade local artisans in Spain, speeding up the production process means they are constantly bringing out the latest trends and styles. 

#2 ALOHAS sustainability

All of the range is sourced locally in Spain and they produce their products on-demand to encourage sustainability. The brand always uses leather that is Leather Working Group certified, meaning that is it treated in the most eco-friendly way such as the water used to treat the denim and energy consumption. 

The brand has also previously created a Second Life Projection which is plant-based footwear made from cactus and corn leaves. 

#3 ALOHAS Size Guides

The ALOHAS range comes in full and half sizes, meaning you can get a more accurate size. If you need a little more help, use the size chart to help you. 

I am a size 5 and I have the buckle suede double strap sandal and they are true to size.

US  EU in Cm 
3 34 8.5 21.6
4 35 8.75 22.2
5 36 9 22.9
6 37 9.25 23.5
7 38 9.5 24.1
8 39 9.75 24.7
9 40 10 25.4
10 41 10.25  26

I am usually a 5 ½  and I tried to size 5 but had to size up in the slip-on cross leather sandal because I needed a little more in the length and on the depth when sliding my foot in. 

#4 ALOHAS Quality

There is always the question when buying footwear, from a fairly new brand whether the quality is as good as what you expect. One thing that makes ALOHAS stand out is the quality, the finishing across all of their products is immaculate, for example on all of the stitching and soles. The quality of the leather is apparent when you first try on the shoes, soft but firm leather and you can see it’s been well treated. Also, in the sizing, you always want to feel they have got the sizing right especially when buying knee-high boots or slide-on shoes, because there is no fastening so, the fit needs to be perfect, which is the case for ALOHAS shoes.
