Our sandals are hand made in Kenya with rubber outer sole and leather insole. Should the footwear get wet, dry them in a cool place and not direct sunlight.
The Mahalia is an easy fit and works well with a larger ankle. There is elastic at the heel to secure the shoe to your foot. Fits true to size, but size up if in doubt.
