ABOUT THIS MODEL:
Comfortable leather sandal with leather footbed. Lightweight and breathable.
Footbed : normal to wide. If you have a narrow foot, consider getting a size smaller. Barefoot factor: the toes are not pressed together in this model.
Leather : The avarca sandals from Pons are made of nubuck leather or roughened leather and therefore have a weathered and sturdy appearance. You can see traces and scratches in this leather. This is a natural process. The leather runs out and becomes smoother and more beautiful with time.
Sole: flexible sole of 95% natural rubber and 5% recycled tires. Barefoot factor: the sole is supple but not so flexible that it can be rolled up or folded double, as is possible with Natural World shoes (also in our webshop). While walking you still experience a very good foot settlement.
SIZE ADVICE: see table in photos for insole dimensions
The classic styles PARIS & DUNA (for children) are tailor-made. Please note that with children's feet that are still growing, it is important to allow for growth space. Up to size 34/35, children's feet grow on average 5 mm every 3 months. Therefore, on top of the length of the foot, calculate +/- 5 to 10 mm growth space and look in the table to see which size corresponds.
IMPORTANT: all sizes in the size chart are measured between the white stitching around the sole. This ensures that the foot really fits in the shoe and does not protrude over the edges. The leather of these Pons sandals will stretch slightly and soften with time and wear.
If you have a narrow foot, you may want to consider getting a smaller size. The leather tapers in width.
Use the measurement instruction below to determine whether you are choosing the right shoe size. Follow the steps below:
- put a sheet of paper on the floor and place your foot on it (usually on the right). Please note, it is important that this is stated and not is
- Make a mark at the big toe and a mark at the heel with a pen or pencil
- measure the distance between the two lines
- choose your shoe size using the table in the photos. Don't forget to add 5 to 8 mm room to grow.
