Cobblin' together a new pair. The current pair have lasted quite a long time under very hard operating conditions! Had a few blow outs and flats all repaired so as to not hold up my grueling schedule. It'll take me near 8 hours over several days to finish and get the new pair right. Just below is the date and title of the post corresponding to the first manufacture of my sandals. I'm very pleased with how well they lasted.
