Sandal Making Workshops

Our sandal making workshops are a unique and gratifying workshop experience for both locals & tourists on Maui. If you're seeking the best handmade in Hawaii souvenir to take home, your own pair of custom leather sandals are what you've been looking for. During this workshop, will learn about the history of our leather sandals, watch how the press works, and immerse yourself in the sandal making process from start to finish. Each workshop is held inside our flagship store (located right on the road to Hana) and refreshments are included. We offer an array of crystal, wood, and nickel bead types to choose from. Our artisan sandal makers will lace you up and you will leave taking your first steps in your own leather sandals, handmade on Maui!

Good Earth Sandals, creator of the Original Maui Sandal, is a unique retail experience that combines a curated mix of high-quality leather sandals created for travelers, wanderers, artists, poets, musicians, and nature lovers. It’s an elevated take on bohemian surf culture and folk arts + crafts. We believe in making sandals that help us connect back to the earth. Every pair we create is one of a kind, designed + handmade at our workshop in Paia, Hawaii. We use the finest vegetable-tanned leather from the oldest tannery in America. It is chrome-free and it forms on your foot within the first couple of hours of wearing, making your sandals the most comfortable sandals on Earth.

This workshop runs for 1-2hours, depending on the size of the group. The maximum number of people in a group that our space can accommodate is 15. Group blocks for parties over 4 are highly recommended because we will close the store to the public during that time, offering you more space and intimacy.
