For ladies and gentlemen
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.
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.
