We tested 50+ types of rubber to find the one that was the most abrasion resistant, flexible, light, puncture resistant, and that had a versatile grip, with just the right shock absorbance.
The footbed is made from 100% an advanced genuine premium leather with high color-fastness (i.e. color won’t fade or bleed) and equally advanced material that has the same qualities as leather. Has an anti-slip rubber footbed and is ideal for wet or slippery environments.
Custom produced especially for Amedel, the straps (laces) are made from a special nautical (boating) fiber that resists saltwater, sun, abrasion, lasts for years, and yet is still very soft on the hands of sailors. It looks and feels softer than cotton.

HOW IT ALL BEGAN
Back in 2011, I thought that going barefoot would solve my knee pain. It didn’t, but something unexpected happened. Back then, I had made myself sandals to run in but ended up wearing them more than all my other shoes.
I wore them almost every day until they broke. That’s when I decided to buy something similar. This was very frustrating because what I found either felt like cardboard or was bulky or unrefined. So I made my 2nd pair, improving the design and durability. This same story repeats 37 times!
At some point, I had made a pair of sandals for my partner Hanane, and we’d wear them almost everywhere. People were regularly coming up to us on the street asking us where we got them from. It was obvious that there was something special about these sandals.
We began accepting orders and had people buying them across 4 continents. That started a long process of “get real-world feedback, improve, repeat.” With every upgrade, we wanted the best materials so the sandals would be even more comfortable and durable.
5 years and 37 tries later, we finally had it right. So right, in fact, that as soon as we sold 50 pairs, a hundred more lined up. With each pair taking us 4 hours to make by hand, we knew we had to find a better way to bring Amedel to the world.
We love our Amedel, and we hope that you want your own Amedel as well. Thank you so much for sharing this journey with us!
