A pejorative nickname given to the political pilgrims from the West who travelled to Nicaragua during the 1980s in support of the Sandinistas, based on their tendency to wear sandals.
The sandalistas usually swallowed the propaganda they were being fed by Sandanista officials hook, line and sinker.
