1 pair = 100 SF
Chipkos Originals come in 5 different sizes for both Men and Women. These are labeled and measured according to US/CANADA metric system.
Please consult the conversion chart below and double check the size of your sandals while ordering. You can even compare your foot size with the exact measurements given in Inches and Centimeters.
Chipkos sandals currently are sold in double sizes and in medium width only.
Centimeters, millimeters and inches indicated in the chart are for the entire length of the sandal footbed. Your foot may not reach the exact front of the sandal due to the location of the vertical thong strap, so we recommend allowing a small margin when selecting your size.
Chipkos uses eco-friendly dyes for threads which may weather with use.
We recently had the pleasure of trying out Chipkos sandals and only have good things to say about them! These sandals are durable and long-lasting… and not to mention comfortable! Take them outdoors, wear them on the boat or to the beach… heck, wear them for a night on the town!
