Tikki Crafter’s insight: on the Aranya sandals, size is inscribed on the yellow tag found just below the easily adjustable Velcro strap (see photo). All the new Tikki shoe models launched starting 2019 will have changed sizes (+1 from the standard) and can be differentiated either from the yellow tag below the strap or by the value inscribed directly on the sole of the footwear.
