The Pah Tempe (PT) 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, everyday wear, or as a lightweight 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/toes and is designed to allow the toes to splay as needed. This sandal offers an ~8mm stack height, zero-drop sole.

Approximate weight for W10/M9: 12.5 oz/pair

Way better than the OG

I bought my first pair of Unshoes Pah Tempe way back in 2012. Those versions are actually still holding up but I've seen the innovations Unshoes has undergone since then and really desired a fresh new pair!
The OG Pah Tempe were hand cut and glued and lacked a bit of polish and finishing treatment that made them not as cosemetically pleasing to the eye as the current version. The foot bed also got really slippery when they got wet and it was a bit of a hassle to take them on and off as there was no quick release buckle. BUT, I loved those sandals desipite the little flaws!
But, sad to say, I'm now even more in love with these new versions, the grand or great-grand children of my old Pah Tempes! The foot bed grip is amazing and the tread much more aggressive which is a nice addition. I also love the quick release buckle! So much easier to take them off and put them on! Adjust the ankle strap once and then pop them on and off indefinitely.
I'm very please with my new Pah Tempes and highly recommend them.

My favourite sandals!

These sandals are great, because they protect the soles of your feet, while also allowing you full freedom for your toes. I highly recommend them.

Essential sandals

These are unique and essential. The custom template 2 fits my feet, which no other sandal of this type does (they are all way too narrow across the forefoot and toes). Also, almost all sandals of this type have a toe post, which my skin simply cannot tolerate.

They are also extremely durable and suitable to many environments. I live in my Pah Tempes in summer. I have worn them to hike in the Greek islands, explore the Channel Islands and squelch through summer downpours in New York City. They always feel great on my feet, the traction is excellent and I love that I can just hose them down in the sink and let them dry.

They are truly irreplaceable.

Still awesome after 3 yrs

After three years, they’re still going strong. I’m 6’4” 210 pds. These are the best sandals for running, hiking, and all-around activities. Ignore the comments about fitting the straps; you just have to find the right angles and tightness after some time. Knee pain and lower back pain disappeared within a few months after using these. Go for it! Keep up this great product.

The best sandals ever

Just hands down my favorite sandal I’ve ever worn. Such strong, fond feelings about it. Perfect straps and perfect sole. Super durable. I’ve put these sandals through everything and worn them non stop for so many summers I can’t count them. I trust them as much as I trust my own skin.


Our sizing is based on standard shoe sizing and is typically true to size, however, we suggest measuring your foot and and using the shoe size chart below to determine the best size for you. Stand with your heel against a wall and place a ruler or measuring tape along your foot to measure the total distance from the wall to the longest part of your foot. If you already own a pair of Unshoes sandals, you will likely wear the same size but please check the chart to make sure.
