Our success was featured by

Reinventarse durante la pandemia

Every year it’s more and more difficult to give a great gift to your partner. The old ways don’t work anymore. You can’t gift them chocolate and expect them to feel appreciated. What’s even worse, this pandemic made it harder for us to accomplish this goal. Some of us can’t leave the house. Others can’t leave their country. A romantic trip to a foreign place is no longer a convenient option. But don’t worry. We’ve got your back. You are in the right place at the right time.

In order to overcome all these limitations, our gift idea was designed so that you will:

❤️ share a special moment with your loved one

❤️ make them feel appreciated

❤️ enjoy yourselves from the comfort of your home

❤️ be remembered as a great partner

Here’s what we have prepared for you: Couple Tickets for The Espadrilles Experience

With these tickets, you will be able to tune in with your partner for an amazing online experience on Valentine’s Day. During the workshop, you will learn about culture and history, while designing a pair of custom-made iconic Spanish shoes (each) of your own liking.  If your partner is a curious type who likes to learn and have fun, then this gift is a perfect match.

What makes The Espadrilles Experience great?

Our experience is not only about getting together online with people from all around world, having fun and learning about a different culture. It’s by far the best experience of all, as it includes a pair of shoes! Can’t beat that! Here you will design the espadrilles of your dreams, we will make them LIVE and then ship them to you, all included! It is the only experience where you receive your creation at home. Without having to pay an extra fee.

The online workshop was born by combining the new concept (online experience) with the old one (physical product). At the end of the day, you are going to receive a pair of shoes designed by you. A pair of shoes you know everything about: how it started as a workers’ shoe and ended up being an international fashion statement.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much is the normal price?

The normal price of the experience, with a pair of heel Espadrilles included, is €114. In the case of a flat pair of Espadrilles, the price is €95. So the two together cost around €210, which you can get now with only €150.
