The Team

It’s 3 o’clock in the morning - 12 hours left to go. The sound of the engines whizzing past the finish line makes it impossible to sleep. Unable to rest, two friends chat over their first sketch as they try to regain some strength. The ideas are flowing, but it’s come around to 4 a.m. and time to relieve the driver and carry on the race. Pedro gets behind the wheel, with Álvaro ready at the pit stop for support. As the battle to complete the 24-hour endurance race continues, the first VANDEL sketch lies on the table among racing time sheets.

Passionate about cars and racing, Macarena, Pedro and Álvaro teamed up to on this project, guided by the vision of bringing the ‘gentleman driver’ spirit to the everyday lives of people who share their passion, making shoes that embody and transmit that essence.

A lawyer by trade, Macarena is mad about Mini Coopers. In fact, her Mini is one of her most prized possessions. Taking Route 66 across the USA from her beloved Chicago ranks highest on her upcoming adventure list.

Pedro, a dental surgeon, adores adventure racing, classic rallies and the most famous routes. His dream is to hit the sand dunes in Dakar and defeat the desert.

Álvaro is an economist, a purist who loves cars without electronic systems and an avid fan of endurance races. He dreams of one day racing in the 24 Hours of Le Mans.
