The Aventura Leather Walking Sandal
The Aventura is the perfect travel sandal for those who love an adventure. Versatile and made for sightseeing, these super comfy walking sandals provide ample arch support and are easy to pair with just about any outfit.
- Made of locally sourced leather
- Handcut, upcycled tire soles
- No break-in period "aka" instant comfort
- Super cushy foam core mid-sole
- handmade leather footbed
- Slightly raised heel for extra impact absorption
- Comes with gentle arch-support
This style is a great fit for most feet: from narrow to slightly wider than average.
This style also has moderate arch support, which is helpful for those with high arches.
We do not recommend the Aventura for those with painful bunions, as the strap will most likely constrict them.
Founder Christal Earle came up with the idea of upcycling used tires for the soles of shoes while in the Dominican Republic and noticing the overwhelming amount of tires destined for landfills. She went on to found Brave Soles with a vision to create beautiful fashion that's kind to both people and the planet at a fair price.
Using innovative solutions, such as upcycling, microfinancing, and community engagement, her company is helping break the cycle of poverty for both her suppliers and impoverished communities.
Their shoe leather is sourced in the Dominican Republic with a local business, Bojos Tannery. As a certified gold member of the Leather Working Group, Bojos is transparent about their process and upholds high environmental standards.
Brave Soles' regular accessories leather collection is sourced from either upcycled aircraft seats and furniture cutoffs from furniture makers or overstock leather from the manufacturing zones of the Dominican Republic.
