For ladies and gentlemen
Mexican style braided custom sandals The base of our Mexico Sunrise leather sandal is our classic 3-strap bespoke sandal, modified with a distinctively ornamental braided instep. The modest ornamentation sets the character of this sandal apart from our other strap sandals and their rather straightforward lines.
Of course, the braided part also changes the way the straps are run, leaving the foot a little more open than in our more functionally designed Mexico Tres sandal with three straps.
The straps run from the forefoot at a slight angle to the instep, accentuating the slightly lighter character of Mexico Sunrise. The braiding is repeated in a slightly smaller way under the ankle, where it once again adds a little accent.
The braiding is not stiff, but with the appropriate care remains supple and flexible, adapting to the form of the instep. The straps are all adjustable for a nice fit, which is aided by the cork footbed. Mexico Sunrise is thus fully suitable for day-to-day use and comfortable even on longer walks.
As with nearly all of our sandals, we do not use plastic or metal buckles, clasps or fasteners on Mexico Sunrise, relying instead on our “Mexican Joint” where the leather straps are tightly entwined.
You can order MEXICO Sunrise in our store & workshop in Freiburg or via our online shop.

We use vegetable tanned leather we dye ourselves in different colors and shades. Because we make each model only to order, you can always select the color.
For online ordering, we only offer a limited range of colors; you can always find the color swatches on the online catalog page of the respective sandal model. When you order in our workshop, the color range is larger.
Apart from that, we have photographed the models for this online catalog in just one color mostly. If you browse the entire collection, you will get an idea of the other colors.
When you wear the sandals, the leather will develop its own patina over time, becoming darker. It is difficult to say how strong this effect will be. So, if in doubt, choose the leather a little brighter.
Please keep in mind: Each hide takes the color on in its own way, each dyeing process goes a little bit differently. And as to how your display or monitor shows the colors: we have no influence on that. Color deviations can therefore occur and are not per se a fault. If you want to be sure, take a look at the leather for your sandal in person at our store & workshop.
We use high quality outsoles in different colors. Which sole we should put on your sandal, you decide yourself.
Of course, the color of the sole also affects the look of the sandal to a certain extent. You can go for contrast, for example with a light sole to a dark leather color, or choose a more low-key combination.
Of course, the sole material also has an effect. When making your selection, keep in mind where you will normally wear your sandals. In the order of images:
Soles 1 to 3 are made of high quality rubber. They are wear-resistant and durable, and also very slip resistant. Rubber is somewhat stiffer and therefore also makes the sole a little more rigid than, for example, EVA. Sole 1 has a marked profile, which once again increases the grip. This can be useful, for example, if you walk a lot on natural trails.
Soles 4 and 5 with their wave pattern are made of EVA, a proven, especially lightweight material. EVA soles are slightly more flexible than rubber, so they provide a more comfortable walking experience. Our EVA soles are a bit thicker than the rubber ones, enhancing the light cushioning effect.
