Custom Made Tire Sandals

I have been making sandals for 40 years; they are made of leather straps and a leather footbed which is nailed to a tire sole. I measure each foot and place the straps in just the right place for your feet. They cost $85, will last for years and are very comfortable. Get ready for the spring/summer. You can text me at eddiebshaw@gmail.com, and I will send you some pics.
