Our World: Saudi Sandals

Saudi men's traditional leather sandals are quite distinctive in their style.  The outer edge of the toes and the heel part are open, but almost every other surface is covered.  The big toe loop covers the entire toe except for the tip.  Many of these sandals are still handmade by artisans in various South Asian countries.  The sandals are available in a wide variety of colors, designs, and price ranges.

Below is a great little short video that shows some of the artisans at work making these special sandals.  If it doesn't display correctly, try CLICKING HERE.
