Thanks to Sanuk, my feet are now living in comfort and it is amazing!
Here’s my story:
At the beginning of summer, I made a mistake and stocked up on cheap flip flops. You know, the ones you can buy for a dollar. They’re great for keeping a spare in the car, wearing to play in the dirt, etc. But they’re not great for your feet. A month into summer, I was regretting the decision to go cheap instead of quality. My feet ached daily from the moment I woke up. It was horrible. I just wanted to sit down and prop my feet up all day long.
One day when we were visiting our local Scheels (one my sons’ favorite places), I wandered over to the shoe section and saw a few styles of Sanuk sandals that looked amazingly comfortable. They were made of yoga mat material…yes, I’m serious! I knew I had to try them for the sake of my feet and I’m so glad I did!
I have been wearing my Sanuk flip flops almost every day for 2 months now. Within a week I could tell a huge difference. My feet were no longer achey when I woke up. Thank goodness! While I primarily wear my Yoga Mat flip flops, I like to alternate occasionally with my Yoga Chakra pair, especially after a rainy day. Because of the tiny air pockets that allow the squish, the Yoga Mat style soak up water. Even after just running through the rain to take my son from the car to the preschool door, they retained my foot’s impression for the rest of the day and were less comfortable as they did not squish the same. Once they dried out, they were like new again!
Sanuk has so many more styles available than just these two. They also have kid styles! My son was pretty excited to see the blue/green/black Rootbeer Cozy Lite set in his size. Unfortunately the sizes didn’t go small enough for my 2 year old’s tiny feet, but I think I was the only one who cared – it’s just so much fun dressing them to match :) Although the foot bed feels a little different, maybe a bit more durable, it is also made of yoga mat. It is wonderful knowing he is comfortable just like momma.
So I know as I write this, it’s the end of summer and you probably aren’t thinking ahead for next summer, but you really should! When summer ends, the best summer apparel and footwear sales come around. And I guarantee you that comfort will not be out of style next year! And take a look around while you’re at it – they have boots, slippers, and other shoes as well.
