  1. Thanks, these are great! I have to go do the left foot…

  2. That method is much easier than others thank you so much

  3. I like the simplicity of this, Kit. Being 60 years old, however, I find it easier to start with the opposite hole. By starting to thread it from the upper inside of the sole, rather than the outside, I can finish on the inside and can tie it off sitting down with my foot resting on the other leg. That way I’m not trying to tie it off on the outside of sandel, which I can’t see, nor reach, very well. Thanks for an easy and quick method of tying, without using the thong between the toes!

  4. Thank you for this video. I very much dislike having a string (or plastic) between my toes, so I like the fact that your sandals don’t do that, plus the tying instructions are very easy to follow.
