The age of my twenty-somethings were spent in flip-flops every single summer, guaranteed! There was no way you could pry them off my feet. Not even to save my soul! I scoffed at my husband, then boyfriend, who repeated told me how bad flip-flops are for your feet. I wasn’t taking them off! Summers now spent as a Thirty-something, have been full of swollen feet, back pain and discomfort. Thanks to Sanuk, I can now enjoy my summer in a comfort and stylish way!
My husband and I have had many conversations as of lately regarding foot wear. Furthermore, as a DJ who is often standing for long periods of time, and more often than not, on concrete floors! Proper foot wear has easily become the forefront of his wardrobe. As a Mom of young girls, I am often running out the door quickly, usually after much smaller feet! The flip-flops I wore in my 20’s will simply no longer suffice.
I recall packing for Cabo thinking, ” I cannot wear flip-flops, my feet will swell and ankles will turn to cankels in no time!” I began to research alternatives! I wanted the ease of flip-flops, but with comfort that would support my feet and spine AND look cute. Is this what thirty-something has turned into it? Replacing high heels of torturous heights and plastic flip-flops with foot wear that makes sense by offering both support and comfort!
In my research efforts, I fell in love with Sanuk Footwear! Footwear designed with comfort and fun in mind! Sanuk offers a variety of fun prints and styles for the entire family,and the yoga matt technology! I had an image of comfortable foot wear, which was similar to shoes I saw my grandparents wearing. Thanks to Sanuk, they managed to completely dispel the myth that comfortable footwear isn’t fashionable!
Bruce chose the Cargo TX in Black which is apart of the new Asphalt Collection. Bruce loved the look of the low profile and that they kicked things up a notch in terms of your classic rubber sole shoe. These shoes are so versatile, he can wear them with dress pants for his Corporate and Wedding jobs or pair them up with his jeans and t-shirts for playing in the clubs.
I went with the Yoga Dawn Sandals in Camel. They offer a contemporary look and a yoga mat footbed! This was the solution I was looking for! Furthermore, as I have wide feet and a narrow heel, the elastic on the sides by the toes make these more comfortable than regular sandals. Lastly, the zipper on the back make them easy to get on and ensured that while I’m chasing littles in the summer heat that they not only stay on my feet but I look great!
The Sanuk Summer Collection has something for everything, you can see the entire collection HERE. Embrace the summer breeze and the rocking waters while looking the part too. The Men’s Casa series offers an updated look to the classic boating shoe with funky prints and leather detailing. The ladies take on a more feminine silhouette with the Sailaway series available in bright corals and slate blues. Take to the sea and bring Sanuk along the way.
