Inserts inspired by Andean landscapes
You surely know about our passion for Andean landscapes and the landforms that already inspired a few of our collections. This one does not derogate and our Vallunas are a nod to the Vallunaraju mountain. Its two summits culminate at 5 600 meters and are covered with snow all year long. When the sun reflect on it… Feast your eyes ! Some legends even tell about an Inca treasure hidden somewhere between its two spikes…
Shine bright like a Valluna !
As we have cyclists in the team, we have been wanting to design a pair of sneakers that is elegant and original, and that allows you to be seen from afar in the dark. We then had the idea of perforating the leather of our Vallunas with patterned punch, and to line it with a reflective material (you know, the one we usually find on the circulation vests). Vallunas on, you’re ready to shine !
Our sneakers are handmade by the Caminhar factory’s team in Portugal. Each piece is assembled with care, its ultra-comfortable natural rubber sole is glued then sewn to insure a good foot support and a better walking resistance.
Why Portugal ?
We believe a strong social commitment goes hand in hand with a strong environmental commitment. That is why our Valluna sneakers are made in Fafe, in Portugal. Among other benefits, it allows us to limit their transport and their carbon footprint. Plus, this region is world-renowned for its artisans’ expertise and the quality of their shoes !
Why do we use pre-orders ?
Pre-orders allow us to produce the right amount of products and to limit industrial waste. Each article is made for you, with care and in sustainable conditions. When you pre-order an item of our collection, you are making sure it’s yours ! We produce our collections in limited quantities and your interest is always growing. When you use our pre-order system, we can guarantee the reservation and the reception of your article, as soon as possible.
We are in collaboration with the NGO Los Chicos de Cusco that supports four schools in poor villages around Cusco in Peru. For each pair of sneakers that you buy, we donate one euro. This represents the cost to send one pupil to school for a day, including the teacher’s salary, school supplies and uniforms. It represents between 15 and 20% of our benefits.
