What a unique, amazing store for custom-made leather sandals, along with jewelry, clothing and bags. We stopped in early in our trip and decided to get custom-made sandals. We had a fitting 3 days later with Zora, and that took about 30 minutes. The sandals...More

My girlfriend bought a pair of shoes and has loved them. I almost believed the last post that Zoras was not open and was pleasantly surprised to find the store open when I drove by. Going today.

I was planning to visit Zora for new sandals - my last ones were made in the mid-80's but I learned that she has not re-opened since the hurricane. Bummer!

I was a reluctant convert, but they are extremely comfortable and individually fitted and made for you. Zora is a hoot! If you are hard to fit or just want great handle, do not miss.

The directions to our villa said to turn at "Zora the Sandal Maker". I was intrigued and looked it up. Zora is known for her custom leather sandals. I asked my wife if she would like to get a pair made. She agreed - and...More
