For ladies and gentlemen
Slim bespoke leather sandal with two straps Sahara is available with one or with two or three parallel straps. Depending on the number of straps, this sandal looks rather rugged or a bit lighter, simply because more straps cover more skin. This page features the model with two (since Sahara dos) straps.
The asymmetrical straps across the instep enclose the foot not as densely as our Mexico sandal does, but give the entire foot a similarly secure fit and hold that is above average for a sandal. At the heel the loose ends of the straps are braided into the broader heel strap, rending buckles or clasps unnecessary.
With Sahara dos, the straps run freely through the sole and remain adjustable. Because the strap is routed through the sole, we can keep the sole relatively narrow. As a result, Sahara dos looks lighter and more dynamic on the foot. Still, this sandal remains durable and robust.
SAHARA dos with its three straps can be ordered online or in our store & workshop in Freiburg.
Please see the following information when ordering online.
- Two straps, width adjusted to fit the size of the sandal
- Narrow sole thanks to the strap guide inside the sole
- Made to measure with custom cork footbed
- Straps run diagonally across the instep for a good fit
- Straps remain fully adjustable
- “Mexican Joint” – no metal or plastic buckles, clasps or fasteners
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.
We use high quality outsoles in different colors. Which sole we should put on your sandal, you decide yourself.
Of course, the color of the sole also affects the look of the sandal to a certain extent. You can go for contrast, for example with a light sole to a dark leather color, or choose a more low-key combination.
Of course, the sole material also has an effect. When making your selection, keep in mind where you will normally wear your sandals. In the order of images:
Soles 1 to 3 are made of high quality rubber. They are wear-resistant and durable, and also very slip resistant. Rubber is somewhat stiffer and therefore also makes the sole a little more rigid than, for example, EVA. Sole 1 has a marked profile, which once again increases the grip. This can be useful, for example, if you walk a lot on natural trails.
Soles 4 and 5 with their wave pattern are made of EVA, a proven, especially lightweight material. EVA soles are slightly more flexible than rubber, so they provide a more comfortable walking experience. Our EVA soles are a bit thicker than the rubber ones, enhancing the light cushioning effect.
