New for 2018, the WOODPECKER and LORIKEET are our first foray into studs! But, of course, we do it the beek way. :-) Each of these metal studs are hand-pounded into the leather for a unique “each one is different” look. They are perfectly imperfect (kinda like us right?). The two leather straps, that fit snugly over your foot, are lined in buttery soft leather so they don’t rub on the skin. And with nothing between your toes, it's one of the easiest styles we have. Oh, and of course, these sandals have our signature molded arch that not only gives you comfort and support but also adds a unique design to the side and bottom of the shoe. All of our all-leather, handmade sandals quickly custom form to your feet and loosen up within hours. The vegetable-tanned leather will age beautifully with a gorgeous patina and the metal nail heads on the inner footbed give the final signature touch to all beek products.

*All all-leather beek sandals have a “rise” in the front (the leather curves up) called a ‘toe spring’. We add this to the design of the shoe to support your toes for comfort (just like an arch support). If you are not used to a toe-spring then it may feel ‘awkward’ at first but it is super important for comfort in the long-run. The height will quickly settle to your individual foot’s needs.
As is the case with all nice leather, we recommend wiping clean with a damp cloth and conditioning the product 2-3 times a year. These sandals are made to last - so treat them with love!
