Physical description
The open sandals with wide sole are formed with one continuous piece of flat stainless steel which is bent in three places to form a simple hollow heel. The uppers are of metallic silver leather, which sit over the instep and are secured to each side of the sole with a narrow riveted stainless steel plate. The toe and heel surfaces of the sole are finishes with a layer of black textured rubber.
