The dark brown leather sandals have rubber soles. The two straps at the front make an "X" and there is a third strap across the back. There is a fourth strap across the front, under the crossed straps. The top strap is stamped with a series of smal "x's" and a series of leaf-like chevrons. The two white grommets at the end of the strap divides for the two small buckles.

They have brown leather footbeds and black rubber soles.
