Catalan footwear

“Put on your vigatanes and come on and dance the sardane”

Made in the Vallespir, the vigitane is the typical Catalan rope-soled shoe. Closely associated with the sardane dancers, it has the advantage of being light, elegant and supple.
Red for the ladies and black for the men, it is made from a rope sole, and the upper is made up of interlaced ribbons which tie around the ankle.
