You have never owned sandals like these before. The leather in the sole is THICK. It is the same leather that is used to make horse saddles. It will quickly soften and form to the shape of your foot, giving you a custom made feel. These will quickly become your favorite sandals.
Our sandals are handmade one pair at a time.
Every pair is made by hand. The leather is cut with hand tools. The only machine that we use is a vintage 1940's Singer sewing machine to sew the decorative thread and sew the double layers of leather together to make the durable strap. The leather will have some natural markings and slight variations which add to the character.
The rubber sole is made through a process using recycled tires. The recycled rubber powder is blended with new rubber material and pressed into a long lasting but lightweight outsole that you can feel good about.
The leather is produced using vegetable tanning, an environmentally safe process that takes two months time.
These sandals were designed by us on the island of Roatan in the Western Caribbean. They are made for island living and casual lifestyles.
Our sandals feature Honduran leather and your purchase is providing work to impoverished artisans and leather crafters who put a great deal of pride into their work and are paid living wages. Pies Bonitos follows Fair Trade practices so you can feel good about your purchase. The Spanish words "Pies Bonitos" translate to "Beautiful Feet" in English.
