Hand-braided, Panama look, Mexican genes You could easily mistake this lightweight bespoke shoe for a sandal. Or the other way round. But one thing is for sure: Sandal makers in Mexico have a long tradition of making very similar braided shoes. And just like other country-style strap sandals, they are called huaraches there.

We make Panama for you from the best leather in elaborate handwork. Forefoot and instep are completely enclosed by the braided upper, and even the heel part is not a simple cap, or counter, but consists of several straps passed through a leather, so that the heel cap appears as a small-scale set of cascading leather straps.

No matter whether you call it a shoe or a sandal: Panama goes well with summer, but maybe more with long pants or a long skirt, depending on who we made this shoe – or sandal – for. Combined with casual, but not too leisurely clothing, the character of Panama comes out particularly well. But, of course, that is completely up to you!

Despite its Mexican genes, this sandal model is stylistically reminiscent of the braided Panama hat, of course. However, we do not work with plant fibers, but instead with a single leather strap, which we cut by hand from a single hide before we can weave or braid it into an upper – which is, talking about a shoe,  the leather part that covers the instep. Quite similar to a loafer, come to that. To make the upper fit your foot, we use wooden lasts, and therefore we need to accurately capture the measurements of your feet.

Since, you can only order PANAMA in our store & workshop in Freiburg and not online.

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!
