Salta Flat – Lila

      • Authentic Argentine leather inner

      • Aguayo textile, hand-spun by indigenous tribes

      • Handcrafted by artisans in Argentina

      • No two pairs are exactly alike

    • Free 2-day shipping, free returns!

  • Order your typical size. If you wear a half size, round down. For example, if you generally wear a 9.5, round down to size 9. If you generally wear a size 7, stick with 7.

    The shoes will mold to your foot because of the leather, so don't worry about them being a bit snug!


For over two decades, Rafael has handcrafted beautiful shoes using traditional Argentine techniques and indigenous textiles. No one pair is mass-produced; no two pairs are exactly alike.


Priding himself in the quality of his craft, Rafael has not sacrificed his meticulous ways as the world has shifted to rely on mass production for their shoes. He sources locally, from the leather interior to the Aguayo upper. 

Rafael sells his shoes at a local artisan fair in Argentina. Tourists crowd at his stand, buying many pairs at a time to take with them overseas. A true family business, Rafael's son tends to the stand on weekends and likes to speak with customers.

I LOVE this shoe!

This shoe is fabulous! It fits perfectly, is so comfortable, and makes a "WOW" statement. Even better, my purchase helps to provide sustainable employment for the artists in Latin America. I am definitely going to buy more!!!

Happy Repeat Customer

My first order was a black pair of the cheaper canvas option. Excited to try the leather ones now! They’ve been great so far

Shoes run slightly small/narrow, and are slightly narrow. Read the chart and the explanation below it to find your exact size :)

Sizing notes 

Our shoes are made in EU sizes. Use our size chart to find which EU size you are based on your US size. If you already know your EU size, select that one.

How PATOS sizes run: PATOS are slightly narrow and run true to size. If you don't have wide feet, select the size that you normally wear.

If you wear a half size: If you wear a half size, and don't have wide feet, round up to the next size. For example, if you have narrow feet and wear US 7.5, your best fit is likely an 8.

If you have wide feet: If you have wide feet, we suggest buying an entire size up. For example, if you typically wear 7, you should probably get an 8.

If you have wide feet and wear a half size: If you have wide feet and wear a half size, you should round up 1.5 sizes. For example, if you wear 7.5 and have wide feet, we suggest ordering size 9.

If you wear a number of different sizes: If, for example, you wear a 7 in some brands and 8 in others and don't know which one to base your size off of, you should probably go with the larger size.
