Product Description:

Walk a day in our authentic Hand-Crafted Water Buffalo Sandals and you will feel as though you have stepped back into the Summer of Love. In India they're called Kolhapuri chappals and have been worn as early as the 13th century.

Later they were made famous in America during the hippie generation of the 1960's and 1970's and are still very popular today for a great reason. Many people feel they are exceptionally comfortable and the next best thing to bare feet! Upon breaking them in, they form to the shape of your foot for a truly custom feeling fit.

**For the best fit we suggest measuring your feet and matching your size according to the measurements listed. Please note that your choice might be different than your regular shoe size.**

I had my right sandal sucked of my foot at Woodstock '69. Woodstock was great and so were my sandals.

I received mine today after a long & anxious wait...I soaked them and let them dry while on my feet...I really like them except that my feet are narrow and the sandals are not quite snug enough for me...NOT the shoes fault... I have skinny feet...I will still be able to wear and enjoy them though. They are well made and look super nice. I still remember the ones I had back in the day(s).

Reviewer: Eve from Daytona Beach, FLorida
I saw these and bought them right away. I thought I remembered them from the 70s, and had high expectations. When they arrived after a long back-order they weren't comfortable right away. I did as suggested: soaked them in water for a few hours and then put them on. They fit perfectly, no problem, but I must have aged differently in my feet! The leather rubbing in-between my toes is just so irritating. Not that the leather is uncomfortable--it's nice and soft now--it's just my skin. I am guessing I will have to just cover that area of my skin with a band-aid or something, and just get used to wearing a thong between my toes again--but oh, I was disappointed! I don't remember them being uncomfortable at all back then. Sigh. By the way, my husband bought a pair too, and adores them. They were comfortable for him right away. He is very happy with them.
