Elia and Jana premium luxury espadrilles

High heels, high fashion, high life.

When others go low, we go high.

When the sun is shining and the air is warm, there’s nothing quite as comfortable as a pair of authentic handmade espadrilles. And for the last 10 years, Viscata has been building a great reputation for producing the widest online collection of authentic, premium, handmade Spanish espadrilles. With more than 500 different styles and colors, there’s still room for more. That got us thinking. What if we created a couple of Viscata shoes, oozing with glamor that make you think of party nights first?

Creating new shoes so you can dance the night away

We knew that a project like this would require some special thought, so, this year, we got our creative minds and our shoe designers working together to see what we could do to elevate our shoes even further. While the versatility and comfort of an authentic Spanish espadrille means that you can wear them all day long (and into the night), we’ve never created a Viscata shoe that’s specifically made to come into its own in the evening hours.

Luxury is in the details.

After several months of work and lots of feedback and design changes, we created two stand-out shoes that we think might change the way you think about Spanish espadrilles forever. Introducing Jana and Elia, Viscata’s first ever high-end collection. We stepped back and took a radical look at our espadrille styles. While our new range of authentic handmade espadrilles have all the features you’d expect from Viscata (all natural jute soles, soft leather), we’ve worked really hard to make these shoes extra special. At Viscata, luxury is in the details.

And now (drumroll, please), Viscata’s delighted to reveal our two stunning new high end models from its 2023 collection. Sophisticated, handcrafted, authentic Spanish espadrilles with a comfortable modern twist.
