Wonders: A Historic Spanish Fashion House
Jul 10th 2019
Lovingly handmade in the coastal town of Elche, Spain, Wonders’ approach to footwear design is rooted in an appreciation for their skilled artisans, contemporary styling, and sourcing the finest of raw materials. Their brand motto of “…transmitting security and a pride of belonging” is imbued into each collection, resulting in innovative styles that carry a distinct character and the unique spirit of the brand’s lively setting by the Mediterranean Sea. Fashion meets function in a wide range of styles intended for the urban woman who possesses a bold personality and love for culture and travel. The Spanish brand complements every aspect of her life spanning work, play, special occasions, and even travel for all seasons. Their shoe styles are meticulously designed with a recognizably Italian influence, comfort driven technology, and both traditional and present-day construction techniques.
Their aesthetic translates the latest trends in footwear into their own playful ethos. From relaxed and sporty to sophisticated and mature, their men’s styles feature classic silhouettes, athletic-inspired elements, and interesting textural mixes. The women’s collections toe the line between quirky attitude and feminine undertones. Supple suede, updated textiles, and leathers are used as canvases for energetic hues, funky embellishments, and touchable patterns. The A-8320 sneaker is a quintessential example of their eccentric principles. We love the combination of breathable mesh and metallic grain leather on the upper. Matching ribbon laces give it a girly feel. The exaggerated wedge heel and chunky platform look back to the ‘70s while staying fresh through tonal top-stitching inspired by tennis shoes and shallow siping at the forefoot.
Wonders shoes lead with groundbreaking technologies that support different facets of city living. The WondersDry collection is a system developed for impermeability in leather. Utilizing a microporous membrane, the treatment prevents water molecules from penetrating the hide while also promoting breathability. The system boasts durability properties, as well. Its three-layer structure bonds the water-repellent membrane to both the leather’s exterior and the inner lining to reduce wear and tear and decrease water-related damage. WondersFly is an ergonomic sole technique developed to adapt to the foot’s physiology and for lightweight comfort. Its defining XL Extralight™ elastomer perfectly balances weight reduction and flexibility through deep grooves. It’s also abrasion-resistant due to a high-quality composition. The third technology is their WondersFlex. Similar to WondersFly, this proprietary attribute optimizes cushioning underfoot by tailoring its shape to the foot’s anatomy. An air chamber provides ventilation and a lightweight feeling of walking on air. The exclusive bending component enhances natural flexion in order to follow the foot’s intuition.
