All our sandals are made to measure and individually fitted to the foot, so we take footprints of both of your feet in our store & workshop. If you order online via our webshop, we will send you a footprint set, aka foot impression foil set, with which you can take the footprints yourself without much effort. With some models we have to make individual adjustments in our store & workshop, therefore you cannot order these models online.
High quality leather, solid sole construction and good craftsmanship, cork footbed and clever adjustment make our strap sandals all-rounders that cut a fine figure not only in the leisure time.
Even if you can’ t see it: The straps are all adjustable. They run freely through the sole structure and are tightened to fit closely to the instep and provide a good and secure hold. We select the width of the straps to match the size of the sandal, so that, for example, if you have a small or slender foot, you will also have a lighter look. With some models you can also determine the number of straps. One, two or three straps can make the same sandal look sturdier or somewhat more elegant.
Often buckles and clasps are the weak points in a sandal. We do without these things in our strap sandals and go for something we call the “Mexican Joint.” The loose strap ends are threaded, or braided, through the holes in the heel strap hold there without any additional measures.
Well, “forever” might perhaps be a bit of an overstatement. But our strap sandals are made for long-term walkers. We can repair and recondition everything if, after many years or quite some mileage, something gives here or there. We think that is quite sustainable. And so do our long-standing customers.
Good leather has no problems with an occasional shower. Our sandals also take it quite well, but what they don’t like is permanent moisture. With the right care you can do them good: A little leather grease now and then keeps the leather supple and makes it less vulnerable to moisture. And if it gets really wet sometimes, there are a few simple rules to be followed when drying your sandals.
