The lively maritime district of Barcelona was once a barrier island called Maians, which over centuries became a peninsula: the Barceloneta. Artists, fishermen, travellers, bar flies, and local merchants have built a unique community here that combines a laid-back Mediterranean beach culture with the cosmopolitan lifestyle of one of Europe’s most dynamic cities. From this colourful setting comes Maians, a thoroughly unique line of plimsoll that fulfils the Spanish requisite of casual yet chic.
Detailed craftsmanship meets urban street style: this is the Maians formula, and it’s what characterises each deftly assembled pair of our unabashedly good-looking shoes. Created by one of Barcelona’s most consummate designers, Alfonso De La Fuente Rey, each pair of Maians is handmade in the Rioja region of Spain using regional material and vulcanised natural rubber: a painstaking process that results in a unique brand of footwear that is dashing, durable, and incomparably comfortable.
