|Material:||• Stonewashed Canvas Upper • Cushioned, breathable insole • Original Portovelo lining design • Nautical elastic gore for easy slip on/off • Slim, sleek light-weight rubber sole|
|Wash care:||1. Spot-clean the canvas upper with a damp cloth mixed with bar soap or mild detergent. We've found that soda water can work, too! 2. For the rubber sole, gently scrub it with a towel applied with mild household cleaner. We do not recommend placing Portovelos in the washer or dryer. Air-drying is our best friend!|
I was disappointed at first when I saw the packaging because it came with a cheap box with Chinese written all over it and it wrapped in a cheap plastic bag. But when i took the shoes out I changed my mind immediately. It looks exactly like the picture and very comfy. It is a bit pricey for a pair of sneaker but it is for a good cause. Most importantly the orange color stripe on the back of the shoes really makes the shoes look special.
Founded in 2013 by Lavina Tien, shoe company Portovelo seeks to combine travel, functionality and goodwill. Inspired by Tien’s many travels, Portovelo’s canvas shoes are comfortable, lightweight and fare well even on rainy days, making them an easy and chic choice for jetsetting. In addition, a portion of sales from each pair of shoes directly supports a charity that works with marginalized children. Portovelo aims to work with a different charity each year, and also launch a men’s line and more shoe styles as the company continues to grow. YesStyle is an authorized retailer of Portovelo.
