A bespoke sandal with Levantine lightness Characteristic of the leather sandal Haifa from the Sandal Workshop Freiburg is the strap crossed twice over the instep and adjustable without buckle. The strap is tightened during the first fitting so that it fits the foot exactly. If necessary, it can be tightened and readjusted at any time. Of course, with this as with our other models we do not dispense with the careful processing of the leather and our cork footbed, which we make according to your footprint.

With its naming we have placed this model in the Levant, drawing less on historical sandal models than on the light-heartedness of the Levantine way of life. In fact, Haifa looks very light on the foot especially in the lighter leather colors, even though the sole construction is as durable and sturdy as all of our strap sandals. The somewhat narrower strap well closes around the foot, the sandal holds reliably and does not fit too loose.

As concerns everyday wearability, you don’t have to compromise on this sandal. Even if the casual leisure look might not let you expect it: Wearing Haifa, you will also walk longer distances very comfortably. Where, again, the anything but common robustness of our handcrafted sandals comes into play.  And, if it should turn out necessary, we can repair or replace all parts.

You can order HAIFA only in our store & workshop in Freiburg.
  • Custom made sandal from the best leather
  • Lightweight look, yet robust
  • Footbed for comfortable walking
  • Adjustable strap for a good fit

Notes on:

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.

BERATUNG, BESTELLUNG, SANDALEN

Statt Griff ins Regal: Erstmal nur anschauen. Normalerweise würden Sie in einem Schuhgeschäft einfach ein Paar Sandalen in Ihrer üblichen Größe aus dem Regal nehmen und anprobieren. Bei uns ist es anders. Wir haben in unserer Ladenwerkstatt Muster zur Ansicht, aber keine Auswahl an fertigen Sandalen oder Schuhen, die Sie anprobieren können. Sie können sich unsere Modelle aber selbstverständlich anschauen, hier im Internet oder in unserer Ladenwerkstatt.

Beratung in unserer Werkstatt. Sie können natürlich einfach so in die Werkstatt kommen und sich beraten lassen. Wenn Sie ein Paar Sandalen oder Schuhe bestellen möchten, empfehlen wir aber, einen Termin zu vereinbaren, damit wir sicher genug Zeit für Sie haben. Der Termin kann nach Absprache auch außerhalb unserer Öffnungszeiten (Montag bis Freitag 15.00 bis 18.00 Uhr) liegen. Planen Sie bitte bei normalem Beratungsbedarf 20 bis 30 Minuten ein.

Wenn Sie sich entschieden haben, bitten wir Sie, sich nacheinander mit beiden Füßen auf einen sogenannten Trittspurkasten zu stellen. Das ist eine Art Fußabdruck-Set, das uns zeigt, wo Sie Ihre Füße normalerweise belasten. Außerdem zeichnen wir den Fußumriss für beide Füße nach.

Dabei besprechen wir dabei auch die besonderen Anforderungen, die Ihre Füße vielleicht haben. Wir stellen zwar keine orthopädischen Schuhe oder Sandalen her, und wir machen auch keine Video- oder Computeranalysen von Ihrem Gang oder Ihrer Fußform. Wir nutzen aber unsere Erfahrung und unser Fachwissen, um besondere Anforderungen zu berücksichtigen.

Brauchen etwas Zeit: Handgemachte Sandalen & Schuhe Wenn wir Ihre Fußabdrücke haben, können wir mit der Anfertigung Ihrer Sandalen oder Schuhe beginnen. Es ist Handarbeit, und wir arbeiten in der Reihenfolge des Auftragseingangs. Wir nennen Ihnen einen ungefähren Termin für die Anprobe oder für den Versand. Für einige Modelle – die Sie nicht online bestellen können – benötigen wir Sie zu einem zweiten Termin bei uns, um die Sandale oder den Schuh anzupassen.

ADVICE, ORDER, SANDALS

Advice in our workshop. Of course, you can just come to the workshop and get all advice you might need. However, if you want to order a pair of sandals or shoes, we recommend that you make an appointment so that we make sure we have enough time for you. The appointment can also be arranged outside our opening hours (Monday to Friday 3.00 to 6.00 p.m.). Please allow 20 to 30 minutes for normal needs.

Once you have made your decision, we ask you to stand on a so-called foot-impression-box with both feet one after the other. This is a kind of footprint kit that shows us just where you normally put weight on your feet. We also draw the foot outline for both feet.

In the course of this, we also discuss the special requirements you may have for your feet. While we don’t make orthopedic shoes or sandals, and don’t do video or computer analysis of your gait or foot form, we will use our experience and expertise to address special needs.

Need some time: Handmade Sandals & Shoes Once we got your footprints, we can start to make your sandals or shoes. It’s handwork, and we do it on a first-come, first-served basis. We will give you an approximate appointment date for fitting or an estimated date for shipping, respectively. For some models – the ones you can not order online – we need you to visit us for a second appointment to fit the sandal or shoe.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION CONCERNING ONLINE ORDERS

Please note: Shape: The sole and footbed are shaped according to your footprints and therefore may appear slightly different from the pictures in the online catalog. This is not a deficiency. Color: The leather is dyed individually, and your monitor or display can show colors quite differently. The colors are therefore not binding, this is not a deficiency.

1. Make a footprint

Involvement of the buyer: We need your footprints for our bespoke sandals and shoes. When we receive an online order, we will send you a footprint kit and a small enclosed instruction. You must return the footprint kit to us before we can begin to work.

2. Adjust the Straps

When you receive the finished sandals, you need to adjust the straps yourself. Please see Video below. This collaboration is required; it is not a shortcoming and does not justify a price reduction.
Right of withdrawal and exchange: All our sandals and shoes are custom made and we only make them to order. The purchase contract is concluded by the binding order, you can not return or exchange the sandals or shoes. General Terms & Conditions: Please read our GTC before you make your binding order. We are obliged to provide you with these informations. When ordering online, you are required tick the respective box to confirm that you have read and understood our GTC . Further questions: Please check our “What you need to know” page first. If you can’t find the answer to your questions there, please feel free to contact us directly!
