Bio Barefoot shoes made in England
I am a self taught shoe maker and martial artist. My Argentinean great granfather was a saddler and a 'Gaucho' (Argentinean cowboy). One of his daughters (my great antie) was a shoe maker in Buenos Aires. Then my father did leatherwork whilst studying Fine Arts.
In my 20's I started travelling and started doing leatherwork. Later on I discover this connection that my ancesters had with this material. My passion to Ninjutsu Martial Arts took me to tabi making. From the experience of wearing leather tabi I started making shoes that could mimic the same feel
