Behind the shoe:
The “El Tayrona” is a biodiverse national reserve park that is in the northern part of Colombia nestled alongside the Caribbean Sea. The area is basked in the golden sun featuring miles and miles of beaches. In Tayrona, jungle meets the sea and creates a magical mirage that makes the jungle appear to float in the middle of the Caribbean Sea. Flora and fauna is abundant as there are a variety of hundreds of species of plants and animals that call the region home. The region is unique because of the Sierra Nevada mountain region where you can see the beach and the snowcapped mountains.
The shoes in the NYC collection are named after familiar, but powerful cities unarguably known for its cultural fashion. The most unique name in Stivalis’ line of timeless, classic, and modern shoes is Tayrona reference, which one is inspired for the unique experience that this reserve is.
