BIO:
We are Julie and Alvaro. I am Canadian (from Montreal, Quebec) and I have been living in Latin America for 9 years now. Alvaro is from Montevideo, Uruguay, where we’ve been living for the past 6 years. When we first met (in Oaxaca, Mexico), we travelled around Mexico and Guatemala, where we learned different kinds of handcraft.

While I was crocheting all kinds of things, Alvaro was entering the infinite world of jewelry. 

We met these shoes in one of the most beautiful and inspiring place on earth, lago Atitlán, Guatemala (please, take one minute to know this place: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lake_Atitlan). There, a brazilian girl taught me how to make them. I made myself a pair and I used them on my trip. I loved them.

A couple years later, we settled down in Montevideo. Here, the shoes lived their evolution, they went through different stages to become what they are today: our personal and original version. We are so happy to offer them to you here and hope you will enjoy them!

BLACK AND NATURAL GUILLERMINAS
Buy them HERE
$55
Le pied léger's Description:
Delicate, light and comfortable footwear!
All handmade from an original design.

These shoes are crocheted with cotton yarn on pieces of suede, and then glued on a 10 mm EVA foam rubber outsole (also cut and polished by hand). The strap and the buckle are hand sewn.

The Black and Natural model is a classic: it fits with everything!

--THIS IS A MODEL TO BE CUSTOM-MADE IN ANY SIZE--

*IMPORTANT to get the PERFECT FIT* 
For every order I will ask you your SIZE and to draw the outline of your foot on a sheet of paper to measure the LENGHT from heel to big toe, and the WIDTH at the widest point (behind the toes). I will only need the MEASUREMENTS, not the drawing.

I absolutely LOVE these Guillerminas!
First of all, they customize them to fit your foot to perfection.
Secondly, these are EXTREMELY comfortable!
Lastly, how adorable are they?! They are so cute and fun... I could wear these with almost anything!
Each pair is hand made to fit you. Julie and Alvaro put a ton of time and effort into making each pair.
I HIGHLY recommend you check out their etsy shop! They come in tons of different colors!
I am thinking about getting these purple one's!!
What do you think?
