Founded in 1949, the Ara brand has managed to distinguish itself in the world of footwear, while staying true to its values and ethics. Indeed, this family-run business is convinced that production methods in the fashion industry must evolve—rather than adapting quality, sustainability and respect of the environment to fit the market. Creating shoes with the perfect mix of style and comfort, Ara meticulously chooses all its materials. Their wish? To take good care of your feet—thanks to a variety of unique characteristics that allow you to stay comfortable, despite a prolonged wear. These differentiating elements include a cushioned sole to protect muscles, joints, bones and ligaments.
