Sanuk Review


Everyone is making a big deal over those 5 toe things. If you like them that's your thing, but I'm sticking to my guns with the comfort of my Sanuks! I've had a pair of the "Donny's" (see the Sidewalk Surfer, Vagabond line) for well over a year now, and I can't say enough great things about them.

They offer the comfort and convenience of slippers, combined with the durability of a good pair of shoes. You have the option of wearing them in two ways; smash down the backs with your heel and rock 'em like slippers, or keep the backs up for stability while tackling the terrain.

Some of the many ways I've used them for comfort have been: long road trips, base camp, around the house, running to the mail box, or any other quick I need shoes situations.

You want some examples of thier durability: Horseshoe Canyon, Canyon Lands Utah, they were on my feet. Approach shoes for climbing at Red Rocks...check. They've even been to a few National parks with me, Yellowstone, the Grand Canyon, Rocky Mountain National Park, and Mesa Verde. Next obstacle, do I dare say, our beloved Incline? I think so. I'm also a firm believer that their flat bottom design helps you walk in more natural motion, which also strengthens your feet.


Be careful what you call them, they're not shoes, they're sandals! Head to your nearest shop and pick up a pair. Not sure where that is check the Sanuk website for a listing of dealers near you, or buy them directly from their website.

Not just footwear to me, but a must have piece of gear in my arsenal!
