This item sold on July 25, 2010.
Upper: Durable hemp canvas, hand-dyed using low-impact fiber reactive dyes.
Outsoles: Mixture of natural latex and sawdust, hand-poured into molds made by Alisha.
Insoles: Salvaged cork, that has been coated with natural latex, for added durability. Insoles are removable, so that shoes may be turned inside out and hand-washed.
Lining: Organic bamboo, hand-dyed using low-impact fiber reactive dyes. Bamboo is naturally breathable, odor-absorbing, and anti-bacterial.
Construction: All dying, cutting, sizing, patterning, hand-detailing, and outsole molding is hand done by Alisha. Final construction is done using an industrial sewing machine. Outsoles are sewn by Alisha, after training from a local cobbler, and use of one of his machines. All construction is done with a focus on durability.
Sizing: Available in whole sizes 6 thru 10. If you are in between sizes, I recommend leaning towards the smaller size, as the natural materials of the shoes will form to your foot. Please include your size in the comment section of your order. If you have a question about sizing, please contact me (through etsy conversation).
