Red Foal shoes were born from the passion of four friends for horses and literature. The logo is the silhouette of a running foal. But why is it red? The foal is a young horse, under the age of 4, who lives freely in the Andalusian countryside in Spain. If you see it running on the horizon as the sun sets, it really looks like a red horse, sunset colored. So, after a trip to Andalusia, the four horse-loving friends decided to name their brand "Red Foal". The idea is to offer a comfortable, light, design shoe that recalls the classic riding boot and the world of horse riding. For example, the sinuous shapes of the suede pad around the ankle refer to the soft lines of a saddle but also to the shin guards for horses. The sole has a double non-slip groove to release it more easily from the spur. The Red Foal sneakers not only aesthetically recall a riding shoe but also reproduce its functionality and are designed and handcrafted in Italy.
