My Dad made a pair very similar to these for my mum when I was a little boy making it an all time favourite of mine.
The Birdwood sandal is a summer classic. A modern interpretation of that classic schoolgirl t-bar.
Style: T-Bar Sandal
Upper: Pictured is Italian analine yearling leather, English calf lining. Also available made in unlined bovine leather for tan, brown and black, and kangaroo lined.
Upper options: Prices vary depending on upper leather choice and sole. Also available in bovine, yearling and baby calf. Kangaroo leather has more texture and character and is very strong. Colours can be limited however. Yearling has similar body to bovine leather, but has a smoother grain and a more polished finish. It is more readily dyed as well. Baby calf leather is like the cashmere of leather and the choice for high gloss potential and formal occasions. Please note that while baby calf offers a much dressier and higher gloss look, it requires significantly more care to maintain.
Sole: 3.5mm English oak tanned, hand waxed brown, leather sole. Topy top piece heel.
