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 fully lined. Colours may appear different in person as hides can vary from what is shown on the screen.
Upper options: Prices will vary depending on leather chosen and sole. Available in bovine, yearling and kangaroo leather. Kangaroo has more texture and markings, the skin is strong, but it’s also very fine in thickness. The veg-tan roo also is a dry leather and thus high maintenance in that it needs regular conditioning to avoid it drying out. Yearling has similar body to bovine leather, but has a smoother grain and a more polished finish. It is also more readily dyed. Yearling and bovine are our preferred choices for regular wear, with yearling offering a more polished look and not being too thick, which suits these fine sandal.
Sole: 3.5mm Italian oak-tanned, hand waxed raw or brown, leather sole. Topy top piece heel.
