Angarde was launched in 2014 by espadrilles lovers Alexandre & Astrid with the ambition to offer innovative, unisex and eco-friendly summer slip-ons inspired by traditional espadrilles. Angarde means “avant-garde” in old French. The brand finds its origins in the traditional espadrille, but goes beyond it by designing durable, comfortable and refined models. Collections are designed in Paris and crafted in Spain by the family owned footwear atelier with more than 25 years of production experience. The leather, silk and other fabrics are sourced from the Spain, Italy and France in order to get the finest quality. The concept of the brand is to modernize the traditional espadrilles, by designing them as slippers and building them as sneakers.
