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.
The PT (Pah Tempe) sandal was designed to perform better than the traditional huarache in water and steep terrain. The PT was the first minimal sandal without a strap between the toes. This sandal is great for hiking, running, backpacking, every day wear, or as light weight camp shoe. It is also great for those who don't like anything between their toes. The strap goes over the top of the foot/toesand is designed to allow the toes to splay as needed.
The Standard footbed is is a thin (~1mm) layer of textured non-slip EVA.
The cork footbed is made with ground cork mixed with EVA. 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 about 3mm to the overall thickness of the sole and also decreases flexibility. Because it is mixed with EVA it is waterproof and does not require any special conditioning.
The ultra footbed is a thicker 4mm non-slip EVA foam. This footbed is good for those who want additional protection from harsh terrain or longer distances.
Over time all soles will compress slightly and mold to the feet.
