Named after the mountain village Lykaio, located in Greek God Pan's rustic homeland Arcadia, the Lykaios sandals are made for trail blazing. They are built like a tank and at the same time give you the ground feel of your bare feet. Gravel, protruding roots, lava stones; throw anything at them and they will grind through and keep your feet safe from harm. The Lykaios feature a 1.5mm thick vegetable tanned, natural color leather footbed. The leather is soft to your feet and will become more beautiful with use and age. The leather is pressure glued to a 5mm Vibram Lisk Newflex rubber sole. This sole has an aggressive tread pattern and exceptional resistance to wear. It is thin, strong, comfortable, and gives you all the traction you need when venturing off the paved roads. Like all Panta sandals the Lykaios feature the 3-in-1 strap system. One continuous strap is fixed to the sole with a full metal plug. A single sliding buckle gives you three options for wearing. They're shipped as pictured in what we call the diagonal-fixed set-up. This is the most all-round set-up that we've chosen as the standard set-up for our sandals.
