Simple, but in the highest quality –  the minimalist bespoke sandal We do not know if we make the best minimal sandals in the world. But with our cork footbed, sturdy leather sole and ankle strap, we are certainly way ahead. When we designed this barefoot & casual sandal, we asked ourselves a simple question: How good can you make a simple product? As good as the material and craftsmanship give!

To start with, we custom make this minimalist sandal for you, of the same high quality leather and with the same carefully made footbed as our other sandals.

Straps and sole leather are of the best quality, just like our craftsmanship.

Of course, our Colombo are made for leisure and are not necessarily intended for walking long distances. They will hold out for a long time anyway: You can be absolutely sure that they will not last only one summer season.

You can only buy COLOMBO in our store & workshop in Freiburg and cannot order them online.

We fit COLOMBO directly on your foot, so that the fit is perfect. Among other things, this is necessary because with this model toe and ankle straps are not adjustable. We therefore determine exactly the right lengths, for the right and left foot, and then sew and fasten the straps in the ideal position for you.

  • Durable and long lasting minimalist sandal
  • Featuring footbed and ankle strap
  • Custom made from high quality sole and strap leather
  • Leather straps made to measure
  • All parts can be repaired or replaced

Notes to:

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.

Example of colors:

Kastanie
Rot
Cognac
Mocca
Natur
Schwarz

MAKING AN APPOINTMENT

Kundenberatung

Instead of just reaching for the shelf: First, just have look at it. Usually, in a shoe store, you would just pick a pair of sandals in your regular size off the shelf and try them on. With us it’s different. We have samples in our store workshop for you to look at, but no range of finished sandals or shoes for you to try on. But of course you can have a good look at our models, here on the Internet or in our store & workshop.

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.
