Waiting list

Why the waiting list?

We are a small family owned business which prides ourselves on producing high quality, well built leather sandals. Due to the high demand for our sandals and our limited production capabilities, we have a waiting list for all orders and work strictly on a first come first served basis. We thank you for your patience and understanding!

How does it work?

Simply add your email to the signup form at the bottom of this page and that’s it.. you are in line! When your turn comes, you will receive a password to our private shop which will give you access to browse the sandals and place an order.

What is the current waiting time?

Our current waiting list does not distinguish between the different models. As our Sunblazer is easier to produce than our Original Wanderer, we are able to fulfill Sunblazer orders faster. 

Our current estimate for those wanting a pair of Sunblazers is roughly 6 months. We hope to be able to give an updated time estimate for our Original Wanderer soon.

Why haven't I heard anything from you?

If you have submitted your email via the website, you can rest assured that it has been added to our list but you may always reach out to us to double check ( We love to hear from you! ;)

We periodically send out an email to our waiting list with updates so if you’ve not heard something after 2 months, please check your spam as our messages sometimes get filtered. You can always add hello@thesoleworkshop.com to your safe senders list.
