The Making of our Leather Sandals
It all began in 2014 when we purchased a pair of sandals online from overseas. We were so impressed with the quality and workmanship that we made it our mission to find where on Earth they were from, and share them with other Aussies.
Our search led us to Palestine, a country suffering from the continuing occupation that gravely affects the people on both sides of the conflict. But Palestine also has a long history of master shoemaking, and this tradition - even after decades of hardship and loss - is still going strong. Their pride and skill can be seen and felt in each pair made.
Owned and operated by the same family for over 50 years, the workshop is committed to producing sandals of the highest quality. Using the finest quality leather, every sandal is made by local artisans using time honoured and traditional techniques. In recent times they have incorporated some modern methods to keep up with demand from all over the world and across the generations.
Soul Sandals are hypoallergenic and have been tested and guaranteed to ensure they can be worn on even the most sensitive of feet. The uppers are 100% genuine leather and the soles are biodegradable polyurethane (PU). Coloured varieties are hand dyed and the range is constantly evolving and changing.
When you buy a pair of Soul Sandals, you are supporting honest and ethical trade between two families on other sides of the world to each other. You are supporting the continuation of a beautiful craft and you will also own a pair of unique leather sandals your feet will love for a very long time to come. In fact, they will become more comfortable every time you wear them as they mold to your feet.
