At under 3oz the ultra light weight version of the original Wokova sandal features a 4, 6, and 8mm sole and a lighter adjustable strap with a high strength elastic loop keeps the sandals tight while making them easier to slip on and off. The Feather model offers excellent ground feel and flexibility.
The Wokova Feather is designed to be a barefoot running sandal but is also great for backpacking and casual wear.
6 & 8mm Sole:
The cork footbed is made with ground cork mixed with EVA rubber. It is good for wet conditions. For some people, contact with raw rubber can cause a reaction which increases sweat. Cork footbeds can decrease sweat and odor issues. It does add to the overall thickness of the sole and also decreases flexibility.
How close should the strap attachment marks from the template be to my foot?
Your feet should be very close to the strap attachment marks if not overlapping. If there is too much room between your foot and the edge of the sandal then the fit will be loose and not secure.
How much room should I leave between my toes and the edge of the template?
The final sole shape of your sandal will be the same as the template (although there may be some very slight variations). The amount of excess sole is ultimately up to your own personal preference. However, we recommend that your toes are comfortably positioned within the sole outline and that there is not more than an inch of space in front of your toes. Too much excess sole can cause the front of the sole to catch and cause tripping.
What if I can see more than one numbers between my toes? How should I choose one?
You should stand on the sole template and position your foot as you would like it to fit. Make sure you are not standing on the strap attachment points as indicated above. Take a pencil and place a mark between your toes, all the way back against your foot where the toes connect. You can then remove your foot from the template and see what number correlates closest to the dot you made. You can double check that number by placing the tip of the pencil on the dot and then placing your foot back on the template with the pencil between your toes as if it were the toe strap.
I have a commonly shaped foot and I don't want to bother with printing templates. Can I get a standard size?
Yes, under the template and toe strap number drop down menus you have the option to choose "STANDARD". We will construct your sandal with the most common template and toe strap number.
