The comfortable ones: From mules to flip-flops

The comfortable ones: From mules to flip-flops

Whether minimalistic with only one strap, casual with simple toe separators or with covered instep like a typical mule: Sometimes it just has to be light and comfortable. Unless it’s about long walks, a heel strap is unnecessary. That’s why there is nothing to adjust in more simply built sandals like flip-flops or mules.

Individually made-to-measure and fitted to the foot

All the more it is important that everything fits right from the start. Like all our sandals, the models without adjustable straps are bespoke sandals that are individually fitted to the foot. Since with these models there are no adjustment options, however, this is always done in our store workshop. Even with a simple flip-flop, a few millimeters often make all the difference when you wear it. We therefore always make the final adjustments to these models during the fitting directly on the foot, at our store & workshop in Freiburg. This is the only way to ensure the good fit we want to offer you.

Handmade, easy to repair, sustainable

As with our strap sandals, we rely on high quality leather and pure craftsmanship, a solid sole construction and a molded cork footbed. A positive side-effect: We can repair and rebuild anything that wears out or no longer fits properly after many years of wear, not only the outsole.

Can stand the occasional rain

Sure, our sandals do not like it permanently moist and damp. But they can handle a some water or rain, ho problem there. Treating the leather with a little leather grease every now and then will also help the sandals stand up well to a little downpour. And afterwards, just gently dry the sandals again.

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.
