100% authentic Ho Chi Minh sandals, identical to the footware worn by the Viet Cong during the Vietnam War. Hand-made in Viet Nam at the site of the Cu Chi tunnel complex, 40km NW of Ho Chi Minh City (old Saigon).

The soles of the sandals are made from discarded automobile or truck tires (which inspired the popular trend toward tire-tread sandals in the late 1960's). The top straps are made from inner tubes. The sandals are highly functional, quite comfortable, and very durable.

Cost of the sandals is $30.00 USD, plus the cost of shipping ($3.50 USD),
for a total of $33.50 USD

To insure a correct fit, please include the length of your foot (using inches or CM) when ordering.

Feel free to e-mail me, I am live part-time near Cincinnati, Ohio and the rest of the time at 458 Duong Le Van Sy, Phuong 12, Quan 3, Thanh Pho Ho Chi Minh, Viet Nam.

The workshop is located on the site of the former Cu Chi tunnel complex, a former Viet Cong stronghold. The craftsmen are Vietnamese locals, many who have lived in the area for generations.

p.s. in Viet Nam it's called the American War
