Iwate men’s sandals are made from vegetable tanned leather with a raw-cut edge. The vegetable tanned leather means there is no risk of allergic reactions. Simple and refined, they have a rubber strap across the front and two crossover straps at the back to give perfect support for the foot. There is an adjustable strap behind the heel.
They have a Vibram rubber outsole – nonslip, comfortable, and sturdy. The sandal’s ergonomic shape and the micro-cellular structure which gives a slight lift to the heel make them feel even more comfortable. Each pair of sandals is made in France, in our workshop in Aveyron by our artisan shoemakers.
Bleu de Chauffe sandals are large-size shoes. Do not hesitate to check your shoe size with the size guide attached.
Today, more than 90% of leather in the world undergoes a chrome tanning process which uses heavy chemical components. Bleu de Chauffe has a different approach. Our leather is vegetable tanned which ensures better quality and more sustainable leather, a soft natural touch, and a patina which improves over the years.
– Full grain leather, vegetable tanned. Natural finish, soft to the touch.
