About Us

It all began in 2012 when we reinvented the iconic handcrafted artisan footwear of the 1950s, worn by Mediterranean fishermen, farm workers, and even artists such as Picasso and Dalí. In 2017, we launched our first sneaker outsole, the Mama Sole, and became the first Spanish brand ever featured on Highsnobiety. After many adventures over the years, we have decided to focus all our energy on a new sneaker collection made with 100% rice and other recycled and bio materials. At RICE, we consider sustainability a necessary requirement in our creations. We embrace both tradition and innovation. #thericesociety
