Esteast shoes are based on a traditional handmade Chinese fabric shoe. Using only natural materials, each pair has a sole made with 1000-1600 handmade stitches of ramie cord and layers of wool, cotton and palm leaves. The stitching on the insole forms a special texture that has a plantar acupressure massage impact. The stitched outer sole is strong and durable. Esteast continues this artisanal tradition with a modern take on this ancient technique.
