K Jacques have been making sandals in St. Tropez since the 1930s.
They were handmade by artisans then… and 90 years later, they still are.
Basically, K. Jacques have been the sandals that the well-heeled French have been wearing for close to a decade.
K. Jacques has worked with Givenchy, Isabel Marant, and a particularly interesting collaboration with Opening Ceremony.
Les gens at K Jacques St Tropez sure know how to keep up with the times.
So, what can you expect from a brand that’s pushing a centenary?
Let’s look at K. Jacques’ most iconic pair, the Epicure sandal…

K. Jacques sandals run true to size, when you consider that my typical size is FR 39… and all of my K. Jacques sandals are an FR 39.
Depending on how wide your feet are, the straps may leave a mark over the course of the day/night though.
… but they are so easy to walk in and wear.
I’ve had my K. Jacques Epicure sandals for close to a decade now.
The leather sole will mould to the shape of your foot — to the point that when they’re finally done, they will feel like they were made especially for your feet.
With each wear, the leather straps get softer and softer… but still maintain their shape when they’re on your foot.
My favourite part of these sandals though is how easy they are to wear — I can go to the beach in them and I can also go to a five-star restaurant in them.
