Sandals Project Materials Test

Materials Test

This hand-stitched sandal, inspired by Kinos of Key West, is the first materials test for my future sandals project.

This exact style will never be sold due to its heavily inspired design.

The sandal is toed with hemp cord with 2 layers of stitched leather, with a rubber mid-sole and a crepe outer sole.

I am so excited! This looks amazing and you can just feel the solid durability just by holding the shoe in your hands!

The question I was asking myself when I began this test was; Will all the materials chosen for the sandals project craft well together, be functional, durable and look amazing?

What do you think? and
How much would you be willing to pay for a pair of sandals that you will not have to replace for years on end?
