The beautiful thing about sandals is that while they are the most simple things in the world, they offer complex benefits to your entire body. Unlike shoes, sandals are not constructed with reigid stitch-down boards or shanks, but rather flexible footbeds thay allow your feet to bend naturally when you walk. We call this Barefoot Un-Technology. The more naturally we allow our feet to move, the stronger they become over time. Our Sidewalk Surfers were designed with this in mind. With a shoe upper on a sandal bottom, they combine the year-round style and protection of a shoe with the natural comfort of a sandal.
