R8F1 Unbleached
The first MAN-TLE footwear. Made in collaboration with Naito - the traditional sandal maker from Gion, Kyoto. After operating as a shoe maker for the local geisha for 140 years, the 5th generation owner has developed this new shape for the current customer's everyday life. This product is called Jojo.
These sandals consist of 5 key elements, all made by craftspeople in Japan. The outsoles are made from a high-compound tire rubber, lined with a foam used in basketball shoes. The insoles are made from 100% natural cork grown in Kanazawa. The toe-piece is made from a blended silicon used for baby dummys. Holding the strap to the sole is a piece of parachute grade velcro. This special MAN-TLE version features straps made from our paraffin wax coated 100% cotton chambray - the same used for MAN-TLE shirts - lined with a Japanese bonded swimsuit fabric.

S - actual length of shoe 24cm / suits EU 35-38

M - actual length of shoe 25.5cm / suits EU 38-41

L- actual length of shoe 27cm / suits EU 41-44

XL - actual length of shoe 29cm / suits EU 44-47


Jojo sandals are designed to fit slightly short on your feet, using the snug fitting straps and toe-piece to grip the shoe. 5mm to 20mm of heel overhang is ideal. Based on centuries of Japanese R&D, this outdoor / work-mode fit will ensure the sandal doesn’t flap around, flick dirt on your back, or slow you down.
