Ten Spanish Sneakers You Can Get Right Now

Spanish sneakers are great, because of their originality, hand-made quality, comfort, and the overall cool factor. Some are sold worldwide, some are only available within the European Union or, in some cases, only within Spain. But if you had a craving for a swell pair of Spanish sneakers right now, where would you go to get it? Well, I would recommend browsing YOOX and FarFetch - they carry many Spanish brands (YOOX more than FarFetch) and they are great online shopping destinations, with fast, hassle-free shipping, quality service, and free returns.

Happy Place

A week on the beautiful Caribbean island of Hispaniola put me in my happy place. The Rincón beach in the Samaná peninsula, Dominican Republic, is ranked as one of the 10 Best Beaches in the world. It's a 20-min ride from the village of Las Galeras. The trip by power boat is even shorter. Of course, I did not forget about Spanish shoes.

Spring Print Sneakers

It's sneakers time again! I see more and more of them on the street in Toronto, replacing winter boots. Many Spanish companies make sneakers.  Some I had already featured on this blog and some are new. There are so many (even after I narrowed down my selection) that I decided to divide them thematically. This post is about print sneakers - flowers, camouflage, animal print and so on.
