Where can I get sandals like the ones you get at a Spanish market

For the past 5 years we have been on our summer holiday to Spain. I love the markets - the thin linen dresses and gorgeous sandals. All cheap!

We are not going this year so I was wondering if I can get the same things online anywhere? Or do I have to trawl through ebay at Chinese sellers? I thought the shoes / dresses were Italian or Spanish (according to labels).

Any ideas gratefully received!

I should add that I have found this website which has similar styles (maybe the same) but I am wary of buying from China without someone reassuring me that the quality is OK first

Lots of Avarca on ebay too

Hi erveryone!
I normally buy at avarcas.com. They are originally from Menorca. Awesome customer services! I'm in love with them!

headffirst Fri 22-Jul-16 12:06:02

Yes, I'd try avarcas.com too. A good friend of mine recommended them to me on teepee, the recommendations app, and I've just got my first pair. I've only worn them a couple of times but they'll definitely be going with me on holiday!

PacificDogwod Fri 22-Jul-16 12:15:08

I've just looked at Sollilas - they are more expensive: are they any better/more style/more well made? confused

xesc Fri 22-Jul-16 15:07:26

I love menorcan sandals and I travel to Menorca every year. The unique placer where I find real menorcan prices and high quality avarcas is at avarcas.com

PacificDogwod Fri 22-Jul-16 16:53:46

I've got these in my shopping cart <finger hovers over 'buy' button]]

arribaarriba Fri 22-Jul-16 17:01:24

They are nice! Do it wink

arribaarriba Fri 22-Jul-16 17:01:58

And then tell me if they are as comfy as everyone says grin

PacificDogwod Fri 22-Jul-16 17:02:39

Stop enabling me! wink

And maybe these would be nicer?

PacificDogwod Fri 22-Jul-16 17:03:25

And are the Sollilas 'better' than Avarcas?? confused

itstheyearzero Fri 22-Jul-16 17:36:30

The Avarcas I got were true to size smile
