ANGARDE was founded by a pair of French siblings - Astrid and Alexandre in June 2014. They decided to take on a challenge to redesign traditional espadrilles into a new type of shoed “designed as an espadrille but built as a sneaker”, which are comfortable and water resistant, with refined lines and an urban style. For each pair of ANGARDE sold, 20L of drinkable water are distributed to a child in a situation of distress in Africa in collaboration with "SOLIDARITES INTERNATIONAL".
