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!

The BEST 5 out of 5 stars

Reviewer: John Wells from Clearwater, FL
I owned a pair of 'Jesus Sandals' for a short time in the 1970's, and was never really totally pleased with them Years passed, and I recently saw these on my FB feed. I ordered a pair, and I LOVE THEM. I stood in the shower with them on for about fifteen minutes, and they have formed right to my feet. Very, very comfortable. I am very pleased.

Reviewer: Carole from Victoria, Australia
I live in Australia, and everyone here wear rubber thongs all year round and I have never owned a pair. I found these sandals in Indian shops here around 40 odd years ago and I still wear them. I'm now in my 50s. Those shops have not imported them for quite some time now, I think maybe I was the only person buying them, so I've been buying them here online. They are so comfortable, being leather. Easy to put on and take off. And they last. I soak them in warm water to get them supple, then wear them wet, until they are dry, and they mould to my feet. I LOVE these shoes !!!!!
