Each region of panama has a little different style of sandal that is made locally by one or more of the residents. Each pair is custom cut and fit and a very snugly adjusted for a perfect fit.

Here my neighbor Manuel is making cutarras for my family. The Cutarras is the style from the Agua Buena, Tonosi, Los Santos area. All of the work was done with a bowie knife and a leather punch and hammer.
