We had an interesting problem which we led to this creation. People said ''no one makes men's driving sandals". In hot and humid places - sandals work better than shoes but you can't drive in them. We call it Transformer, it's extremely light weight because of PU sole. Made with genuine leather upper which has been lined with sweat friendly genuine leather lining. It comes with molded PU cushioning which has been further reinforced with layer of latex.
The upper has been stitched to the sole following the classical stitch down construction technique which gives it long life. The slits on the sides allow for greater air circulation keeping your feet cool. These can be paired with Chinos, Denims, Shorts and you can wear these sometimes to office as well. This is so comfortable that you will not at times even feel that you are wearing it in your feet cushioned with long life latex sheets. The straps/thongs have been handcrafted with 100% cotton webbing which is sturdy as well as Skin friendly. We have used multicolor webbing in this to make it more delightful. The handmade sole is combination of high density EVA midsole with a tough Tunit outsole. This gives it a super long life.
On the downside, we could make it lighter but there is a tough trade-off between making it lighter versus making it last longer. But for those who prefer extra air around their feet - this is a perfect choice. And the way these have been made, you can wear this daily without worrying about its wear and tear. It's built to last!
3 Months warranty against manufacturing defects. The warranty covers stitch & sole strength. The warranty does not cover wear and tear of leather or sole due to rough usage.
Men's Leather Sandal
This genuine leather Sandal is a very special one. The Sandal is designed to deliver exceptional comfort even with extended hours of usage. Transformer as it’s called is the only sandal which comes with driving shoe sole – most sandals do not work well for driving cars but this one is designed to help you enjoy your drives.
This sandal was designed on the feedback of one of existing TZARO customers who loves Hector series and his question was “why does hector not come in a version which allows him to use while driving”. This is how this series was designed.
Its unique features include:
Airflow design which is complemented with sweat friendly genuine leather lining which gives it powerful ventilation – you will not feel the sweat in these
The upper is stitched to the sole which adds to its life and flexibility
The sandal is superlight in its make and weighs less than 650 grams a pair
The layers of cushion are designed to reduce stress on your knees and ankle and will deliver exceptional comfort even over extended hours of usage
This sandal goes well even with denims as well as kurtas and can handle bikes as well as cars, this is as versatile as it can be which is why it’s called TRANSFORMER
The unique air-flow design along with sweat friendly genuine leather lining along with the way it’s made gives it powerful ventilation. You will not feel sweat in these even in humid conditions. Your feet will never smell.
Stitched the Sole
The upper is stitched to the sole. It’s a classical technique called 'Stitch Down Technique' - this stitching is done manually and each stitch is actually locked. It adds to its flexibility as well as to its life.
Ideal for Driving Cars Too
The super-light PU sole comes with a driving shoe sole, you can comfortably drive in these Transformers. Most sandals are not comfortable to drive cars with but this one not only has a driving shoe sole but the upper is shaped like a shoe which gives it a good grip [it doesn't jump out of the feet in angular position].
Cushioned Foot-bed For Lower Stress on Your Knees
Multiple layers of cushion in the foot-bed are designed to reduce stress on your knees and ankles. You can comfortably use them even for long walks. The cushion layers include layers of PU & latex which will work well even over 4-5 years of regular usage.

What is stitch down construction technique?
The shoe upper flares out; which is stitched into the sole (a process called channeling). This makes the shoe last very long. Besides this is done to PU sole which is light weight and flexible. It's a classical shoe making technique but its very time-consuming process.
What's the padding?
These have been padded with a two layers of Latex and layer of PU which has a very long life. The cushioning will last for atleast 3 years even if one uses these on daily basis.
What is special about leather?
These are premium leathers which gives it extra life and makes it skin friendly. The oil pull up leather has extra resistance to water and also has a distinct way in how it ages as you use this shoe. The oil-pull up leather is what we see in lot of Wild-Wild West kind of movies.
What's special about the sole?
The Sole is made of high quality PU which is one of the lightest material for soles. This has extra grip in outdoor conditions as well.
Any wearing tip?
These have been designed to be worn without socks - the lining of this shoe absorbs sweat almost instantly.
What to do if it's tight?
In case the length of the shoe is right while the shoe fits rather tightly then wear it with thick socks for a few days and it will ease out. You can use two socks and use a hair blower to expand the shoe upper further.
You can customize TZARO shoes to make it even more comfortable
