Mentioned only in Mark 6:9 and Acts 12:8. The sandal was simply a sole, made of wood or palm-bark, fastened to the foot by leather straps.

Sandals were also made of seal-skin (Ezek. 16:10; literally tahash, “leather;” King James Version, “badger's skin;” Revised King James Version, “sealskin,” or marginal note, “porpoise-skin”). (See SHOE.)
