After a few years off the market Pirma Brazil sandals are once again being manufactured and are being sold at the Flexi shoe store in Ajijic across from the plaza. They may have them at the Flexi store on Lopez Cotilla. I do not know that as a fact. They are being sold for 449P. For those who have never seen them or worn them they are wonderful for walking on the cobblestones as they have thick rubber soles, leather tops and an air pocket in the back. When they were previously manufactured and sold they were very popular.
Okay, this may be a long shot, but I thought it was worth asking. I notice that when people post to the board looking for a particular item, a frequent response is 'find a local craftsman to make it for you to order'. Well, I have a pair of sandals that I love, and they are worn almost to falling-apart. They are beyond any sort of repair -- the leather is actually starting to disintegrate. Would there happen to be a zapatero in the area who could take my existing sandals apart and duplicate them? Failing that, I will need to buy new sandals before long, and I would love recommendations for locally-made leather sandals, if such a thing exists. So far all I've seen are plastic sandals, which is no bueno.
