It took 11 sample sets, three different manufactures in multiple corners of the world and two years of research for Amelia to get Verao Sandals to where they are today. Where are they exactly? Before they make it to the States, they start in a little town outside of Porto, Portugal called Felquieras. There, they begin their journey from painstakingly selected, vegan-tanned leather bits to super-wearable summer staple. A small team in the Verao workshop pieces together the sandals with a whole lot of heart and sole. Well, with bright turquoise, 100% rubber soles, that is. Because they’re rubber, those comfy sandal support systems never wear down. You can walk for miles and miles in you Veraos and love every step. And that’s exactly what Amelia hopes you’ll do.
