Product Description:

Walk a day in these authentic Hand-Crafted Hippie Sandals and you will feel as though you have stepped back into the Summer of Love. Also known as Jesus Sandals, 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.

There's an "Old Hippie" secret for breaking in your new pair of sandals - put your sandals on and soak them in water (while still on your feet) for about 3-5 minutes. Remove your feet from the water and leave them on until they are totally dry. They will soften, form to your feet and fit like a glove!

**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 then your regular shoe size.**

The original Earthing Sandal! 5 out of 5 stars

Reviewer: A viewer from KS
I'm so excited to have found these. I wore these in the 70s and early 80s daily when weather permitting and I finally found them 30 years later! I have been looking for leather soled shoes and these are the only ones. Google 'earthing or grounding' and you will be glad to have found these 'non' rubber soled shoes. And comfortable to boot.

Reviewer: Phil from Turin, ITALY
I live in Italy and I use to wear them when I was at High School and University, all times during Spring and Summer. They're great, comfortable and timeless. Finally I found them again at Hippie Shop . As soon I received them I soaked them into cold water wearing them on my feet and let them dry keeping them dressed. They become like second skin and wear comfortably. Seems to wear no shoes, I love them!

Reviewer: Sarah from United States
I just got my pair in today :) I'm only 18 so i sadly don't have a past with memories with this product like the majority of other people who wrote reviews. At first glance they looked extremely cheap and looked as though they were going to fall apart as soon as i started to wear them. As i was wearing them around and tugging at them i realized that they are actually extremely well made! I have already gone ahead and soaked them for an hour in cold water and they are drying on my feet at the moment :)The only bad things i would have to say about them is since i got them wet the dye in them ruined one of my towels but that's not a big deal at all! :) And also, my feet are not wide at all and these sandals are just a bit too skinny. Overall this is an awesome product for an awesome price! i am very happy with this purchase! :):)
