The Astrid Sandal | Kit

195.00

~ LIMITED EDITION COLOURS PROMO ~

To celebrate the upcoming festive season, limited edition colours are available for the kits! Please note that these options are extremely limited in supply so the specific colour range may only be available as a once off.

About this style:
The Astrid Sandal is actually much more simple to make than you may think, it just has more steps than the other options! The process is full of repetition allowing the maker to get into good work flow. When it comes to forming the shape of the sandal over the foot, this is one of the easiest styles due to how simple it is to place and fit the straps. 

For someone's first time, this style would take approximately approx. 10hrs of thinking and making time, give or take.

** Please purchase The Specialty Tools Kit to make The Astrid Sandal.

Important exclusion:

The final step of sandal making is to smooth the edges of your soles. This can be done using a sanding belt or a metal file. You can either purchase both items from your local tool store, or you can take your formed sandals to a shoe repairer to do the final sanding/smoothing. This should be an inexpensive option.
