For over a hundred years, the world has passed through St. Tropez transforming it from a sleepy fishing village into a world-renowned recreational harbor. St. Tropez, with its private night clubs, crowded beaches and celebrities has always been a place where people walked around barefoot. K. Jacques has been caring for its customers, year in and year out, generation after generation as one would for a friend. Fitting the Tropezienne gladiator sandals is an art that the K. Jacques fashion house has nurtured with passion for over 80 years at the workshop in St. Tropez.
WHAT IS A K.JACQUES SANDAL?
The apparent simplicity of the sandals masks the high level of skill required in their production. Each pair of sandals requires approximately an hour of labor. The sole is made of thick leather. The K. Jacques fashion house keeps a watchful eye on the thickness of the leather. Over the years, K. Jacques has developed a close relationship with its leather suppliers to ensure the quality and the exclusive characteristics of the K. Jacques sole.
The sole is comprised of two layers. The layer which comes in contact with the foot is stitched with linen thread, chosen for its robustness and imported from Ireland. The top layer of the sole is then branded with “K. Jacques, St. Tropez, while the bottom layer is branded with “Created and manufactured in St. Tropez”. The straps are made of soft leather selected especially by our suppliers to ensure K. Jacques’ high standard of quality
