The ankle-high silhouette of Hereu's black Aielo style is inspired by chukka boots, which were originally worn by polo players. They're crafted in Spain from smooth leather to a hand-stitched moccasin construction and rest on the label's ultra-light rubber Sport sole.
José Luis Bartolomé and Albert Escribano returned to their Mediterranean roots to found Hereu after many years immersed in the cultural mix of London and Paris. At Hereu, we set out to engage with local artisans, rediscovering craft traditions and using them to express our distinctive take on the region’s enduring heritage. Hereu’s modern craftsmanship imagines a better future in which innovation and tradition, the local and the international exist together seamlessly, expressed through functional designs that embody a timeless tradition.
