Summer means letting your feet breathe after being cooped up in boots for the last seven to eight months! That is, if your feet are well kept. Don’t come near me with your stinky toe jam!
I can confidently tell you that I own the most comfortable pair of sandals you’ll ever find, thanks to Sanuk Yoga Slings. While many types and brands require a certain “breaking in period,” where you spend at least a week wincing from newly-formed blisters, these babies fit perfectly with the first step, without plastic inserts rubbing your skin raw.
A friend of mine who introduced me to this type of Sanuk footwear owns a few pair, and described them to me as walking on yoga mats. You can wear them all day, she said, and she wears them with anything, every chance she gets. Now I understand why. And she’s not wrong about the yoga mat! The sandals are actually made with the same material, and it makes a world of difference.
A faithful pair of sandals ended up breaking on me a few weeks ago, and I figured it was as good a time as any to try Sanuk Yoga Slings for myself. I found the perfect basic cream pair I had been searching for, tried them on and didn’t want to take them off. I purchased them on the spot, and even debated purchasing a second pair in a more fun pattern, but I chose to hold off for now due to my budget. And I kid you not, whenever I wear these, at least one person stops to ask about them. Word is spreading on how fabulous Sanuk Yoga Slings really are.
Let me try and explain these sandals to you. The base is pillow-soft and squishy, the perfect material to sink your feet into. The straps are made of soft fabric — that again, won’t create blisters as you go about your day. Because of their design, the sandals are secured to your feet and there’s no worry about them flinging off if you plan on running, biking, or riding your favorite leg-dangling roller coaster. You can pair them with your favorite shorts, jeans, leggings, and casual dresses!
Can you tell how much I love Sanuk Yoga Slings? I give them my highest recommendation, truly! I’m sure you won’t regret giving them a try.
