About Us

It started in 2012: We reinvented the iconic handcrafted artisan footwear of the 50's - worn by mediterranean fishermen, farm workers or even artists such as Picasso and Dalí. In 2017 we launched our first sneaker outsole, the Mama Sole, and we became the first Spanish brand to be ever featured on Highsnobiety. After all these years, and many adventures, today we decide to focus all our energy in a new sneaker collection, 100% made with rice and other recycled and bio materials. As design lovers we consider sustainability as a necessary requirement in our creations. We love tradition but also innovation. We think, it is possible to make both: Fun footwear and a difference for the environment. That’s why we founded RICE.
