Many years ago, when I was a child, we didn't have much money to dress ourselves. Although we lived in a humble neighborhood in Nicaragua, we did not lack good footwear and both my brothers and I were very happy with the shoes that our parents gave us. I, without going any further, I had some very beautiful esparto shoes and as soon as I put them on, I felt full of energy to do my mother's errands or to go play in the street with my friends. And best of all, is that these shoes never broke, it was like they were magical! Many years have passed since then, But I still remember those shoes.

I'll be right with you...
