tada : nahila sandal
When Bárbara Cantó chose the name for her hand-made, all-natural Chilean shoe company she was inspired by the word tadasana, the first yoga pose, meaning loosely ‘to stand well’. The Tada ethos draws on the yogic principle that to enjoy stability, flexibility and strength in our daily movements, we must first bring attention to our feet and their connection with the earth, creating even distribution of weight through the heel and metatarsal, and comfortable arch support, with breathable, natural materials.
All Tada shoes are designed and skilfully made by hand in Chile, with soft leather uppers and rubber soles made from the pará rubber tree, offcuts of which are rerolled and cut again and again, creating a very low waste process.
The nahila is named after Tada’s collaboration with Chilean ultra marathon runner Nahila Hernández, who needed a seamless, super comfortable sandal to promote healing after her epic exertions. Fortunately, you don’t need to be an actual athlete to enjoy this elastic sided shoe with its distinctive cross-woven straps in soft, smooth, foot-friendly leather.
