Episode 62: Feelgrounds Seaside Twill


I used to be wanting ahead to making an attempt the Seaside Twill because it had a easy one heel strap Velcro system and I used to be curious how it will examine to different barefoot sandals I’ve tried which have extra complicated strap methods. Moreover, the thong a part of the sandal is positioned completely vertical to the foot and I needed to see the way it felt compared to thong sandals which might be positioned diagonally. The rubber sole is tremendous minimalist and with out lugs and was eager to seek out out if the tread can be non slip. The cork foot-bed and cotton cloth higher has an natural, pure look that I actually like particularly with the Biscut Beige coloration possibility which I’ll evaluate right here. Sean tried the Burgundy Pink coloration possibility. Notice to keep away from confusion till lately the sandal was simply referred to as the seaside, because of the new addition of their luxe fashions they renamed this the Seaside twill.

The Seaside met my each expectation. The strapping system was so easy to make use of and alter and my foot felt like one with the sandal immediately. My foot felt prefer it was hugging the sandal completely with out having to fiddle or alter in any respect. The vertically positioned thong strap felt so proper between my toes, virtually as if it is not even there. The cotton higher was such a pleasure to put on in opposition to my pores and skin and the cork foot-bed was so freaking comfy. Once I first tried it, I used to be messing round with the basketball in my Guardian’s again yard and determined to shoot some hoops with Sean. Boy was I stunned how good the tread was on concrete. Its flexibility and the best way it moved in unison with my foot’s pure motion made me fall in love with this sandal.
