The Sandy. Maine Crema

$ 250.00 USD

The Sandy was the very first design to represent our brand and definitely set the tone for what our shoes strive to be. It is a classic flat translated to a minimal aesthetic and a decidedly modern feel. It was designed to flatter the foot's curves and movement.

Only available in a 2cm heel.

Character: This leather is structured from it's veg tannage, giving it great pliability with a nice body and feel.  The tumbling process keeps the leather soft and supple, skivved down for us to midweight leather ideal for all seasons.   Some parts of the hide are more pebbled, while others are smoother.  Please indicate if you have a preference.

Care: Darker colors can be conditioned or cleaned with a shoe wax as well. Lighter colors should be cleaned and conditioned lightly with saddle soap. Be sure to test a small area prior to using.

This leather is from a tannery in the Tuscan region of Italy. They make only 100% Vegetable Tanned leathers and bear the Pelle Conciata al Vegetale in Toscana mark which are the strictest standards in traditional leather tanning and environmental standards. Their labor standards are also certified.

    There are inherent variations in natural leathers, handmade manufacturing, and local sourcing.  Color and texture variations can vary within the same hide.  Different monitors can also display colors differently.  You may indicate any preferences in tone or texture in the Notes to Shoemaker section if you are looking for something specific so we can do our best to accomodate.

      Our insoles are cut from a thicker vegetable tanned leather than typical shoes to help with breathability and shock absorption. 

      The midsole, which serves as the chassis for a shoe, is also made of a vegetable tanned soling leather sourced from the US and Spain (we never use the typical factory cardboard).  The material is also ideal for bacteria and odor prevention and great shock absorption. 

      Between the soles is a layer of cork.

      Our soles are sourced from small fabricators in Southern Spain and in Portugal. Both towns are world reknowned as the shoemaking capitals in Europe. Our soles and heels are made of Italian vegetable tanned leather. The heels are stacked leather or wood, no hollow plastic core heels, and we add a layer of rubber under the heel for slip resistance.  

      We use only Toluene free glues in our work.  Sourced from Germany or Spain.

      Makers: Our shoemakers are the absolute heart of our work. Handlasted shoes require a deep understanding of the leather as it is being stretched and formed around the mold.  Read more on our small and wonderful team of craftsmen here.

      FOR SHOES WITH A HEEL COVER:

      As a general rule, for closed heel shoes we recommend you go with the SMALLEST of your size range.  When in between sizes, go for the smaller size as our shoes have no stiffeners and are best and most comfortable with a snug fit. 

      FOR MULES/OPEN HEEL SHOES/SANDALS:

      We recommend to go with the LARGER of your size range.   This allows for some space behind the heel and to allow the foot to enter fully into the shoe and stay there as you walk.

      WIDE LASTING:

      Wide lasted shoes do not have a wider footprint, but instead increase the volume around the width and arch to the size larger while maintaining the length.

      More details on sizing and measuring your length correctly here

      A STORY ON SIZING:

      I typically wear a size 9.5US to 10US (40/41EU) in factory made shoes.  Factory made shoes typically have a stiff plastic layer between the leathers which aggravate my toes and heels.  

      My length measurement is 255mm, which is a 39EU by our size guide, matching my size in my early adult years.

      Comparing those two bits of info, I am a 39 by length, but need the volume of a 40/41 now as my joints have spread and my feet have become wider, so I opt for a 39 WIDE in our shoes and boots.  Since I have a high instep, I can wear a 40 standard width in our Sandy style.

      For our mules and sandals, I am comfortable in the largest of my factory size range, so a 41.

      Compliment magnet

      These shoes are my fifth pair from Faye. Quality is superb as always and the red glove skin leather is gorgeous. They don’t need any breaking in at all. I’m a solid size 8 and I got the 38, which is perfect. I had a hard time deciding on the size since I’m at the cusp according to her size chart. Faye responded and gave great advice (some models can be a little bit bigger while others should be more snug). If in doubt measure your feet and email her.

      Fell in love

      I was so skeptical to love these shoes because my feet are wide, the backs of my feet get irritated by most flats and I was worried that putting these on would be kind of weird. I was wrong on all accounts! The second time I wore the shoes I could slip into them easily and they had already started conforming to my feet. I can tell now that these are incredibly comfortable shoes that I will be wearing for a lifetime! So thrilled with my purchase and highly recommend these. Also, I live in the tropics and sweat a lot, but these hold up really well. Buy them already!

      dream shoes

      I went back and forth for a long time trying to decide if/when to invest in a pair of Sandys. I finally did and have never loved a pair of shoes so much. Mine are the raider mokka leather and it is amazingly thick and soft. I adore the thick leather. It feels substantial and luxurious and supportive and the shape of my toes doesn’t show through. I love the unique cut of the shoe and the fact that they go with everything. They’re great with skinny jeans and dresses and I know they’ll be perfect with shorts this summer. The leather stretches perfectly for what feels like a custom fit. I usually wear a 6.5/7, have a semi wide foot, and the 36 was a great fit! They were a smidge tight when I took this picture but have since loosened up perfectly. Thank you, Faye (and anyone else involved), for these shoes! I hope to wear them for many years to many places. They’re an investment, but one I feel good about for several reasons.

      Also, Faye was insanely patient with me and helpful throughout the decision-making and ordering process.

      I’ve also had a pair of Terilyns. Also amazing. Maybe not as versatile for my particular wardrobe but such a dream to wear. The perfect bootie.
