Our sandals are constructed from the finest Napa Valley, California leathers.
The blonde colored footbed and sole leather is a Veg-tan cowhide (also known as Oak-Tan) which utilizes organic materials instead of traditional chemicals (better for the environment). Veg-tan has a greater body and firmness than traditionally tanned leathers… making your sandals even stronger… though they don’t look it!

The part that touches the ground. Available in a thicker/denser 10-11 oz veg-tan leather (everyday) or 5-6 oz veg-tan leather (dancer sole). If you order a thick leather sole a heel may be added. Note that all sandals come flat, if you desire the ¼” stacked heel please make note in the Comment Section when you order.
Loops / Laces / Heel Strap
Sandal laces are usually all the same color, but can be changed if desired, i.e. you may order black sandals with red laces or black sandals with red leather on the inside of the heel strap and red laces or any other wild color combination you can dream up!
Depending on the style you select, there will be 2-4 sets of these that the laces go through. Most clients will find that their foot rests on the loop insertion point… this is normal.
Sandal laces are available in all our colors and are an inexpensive way of changing the look of your sandals. Selected sandals come with dual color laces (Bridal white/silver or Bridal white/gold).
All sandals have these except the Tahiti.
Toe Loop sets the position of your foot on the footbed of the sandal. It goes between the big toe and second toe, just like in a flip-flop style sandal. You can also lace your sandals without using the toe loop for another look. If you prefer to have nothing between your toes, the toe loop holder may be left off of your sandals. If you are a dancer and ordering Oasis Dance Sandals, the toe loop holder is recommended for maximum stability.
