The GTI model is inspired by the 80’s, bringing back a very cool and comfortable shape. This version features a natural cotton fabric and is handcrafted, one by one, by our traditional shoemakers.
100% Handmade in Spain:
Detailed craftsmanship meets urban beach style: this is the Maians formula, and it’s what characterises each deftly assembled pair of our unabashedly good-looking shoes. Created by one of Barcelona’s most consummate designers, Alfonso De La Fuente Rey, each pair of Maians is handmade in the Rioja region of Spain using regional materials and vulcanised natural rubber.
The Maians soles:
Our footwear is produced using the artisanal methods from here in Spain. Each of our factories is still owned and operated by the original founding families. Tirso, Amador, Eugenio, Pepa… are not only the names of our classic models, it’s our way to commemorate their work in each of our collections. The tooling and know-how of each factory is unique and has been passed on from generation to generation. Our soles are manufactured using these original moulds; recovering the rich Spanish shoemaking heritage.
Inspired by a unique neighbourhood: La Barceloneta, the perfect mix between beach culture & cosmopolitan life. The lively maritime district of Barcelona was once a barrier island called Maians, which over centuries became a peninsula: The Barceloneta. Over the years, the former island has transformed into a vibrant district, a source of character, style and inspiration. From this colorful setting comes Maians, a thoroughly unique line of footwear that fulfils the Spanish requisite of casual yet chic.
