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.**

I wrote a review earlier today about my Water Buffaloes "breaking" in one month. The Hippie Shop has already contacted me and this problem has been handled to my complete satisfaction. I compliment them on the speed with which they handled this problem and will continue to shop here. I hope my previous review will not deter anyone from shopping here. Thank you.

Awesome Sandals! 5 out of 5 stars

Reviewer: Debbi from Sweet Home Alabama
I ordered these waaaay too small first (I measured my feet but no dice -- seems to be that you need to order two sizes smaller than your actual shoe size. I wear a ladies 9 and finally got a 7 which was perfect). When you first put them on they are tight and hard and uncomfortable. I listened to the advice to take a shower in them -- gave it a go and it really works. One shower softened the leather up really well. Then I towel dried my feet and sandals and wore them around that day. Now they are perfect fit and very comfortable! These are $25 vs. other leather sandals like Birkenstocks that are $80 plus. I'll stick with these as long as I can get them! I do keep them up in the closet or anywhere away from my pups -- the real leathery smell may be too much of a temptation for them!
