In northern California, we tend to expect summer weather year-round. Californians have been known to push the weather envelope when it comes to fashion. You’ll notice a lot of Californians wear shorts and sandals winter, spring, summer and fall. If it’s cold outside, we add a sweater or sweatshirt to our layers and continue our day, preferably wearing shorts and sandals.
ABEO – ultimate, all-purpose adventure sandals
There’s nothing I love more than a comfortable pair of sandals. And being the active adventure type, I prefer waterproof sandals with a closed toe. The ABEO H20 sandal has got it all; a great sandal for water activities, the waterproof leather uppers give good coverage of the foot, while the cap toe protects feet from those unexpected bumps in the road, or rapids along the river. I learned about the importance of closed toe sandals while on a down hill mountain bike ride. Let’s just say I don’t ride mountain bike trails without closed toes shoes any longer, and my days of being a foot model have come and gone.
The insole provides a custom, 3-D fit footbed, while the channeled rubber outsole offers grip and traction for river walk hops and scrambling up slippery slopes. For those who prefer a custom fit sandal without the custom-made price, the elastic lace up vamp gives a snug fit and the heel strap is adjustable. If you wear these sandals on the airplane or in the car and you take them off, your seatmates will appreciate the Aegis microbe shield that helps eliminate odor, staining and overall deterioration of the sandal.
If You Go:
The Walking Company has shoes for every foot. They guarantee the best price and the company offers free returns at any store. Priced at $119.95, the ABEO H20 sandals doesn’t take up much room in a suitcase. If you live in a sunny climate, or are headed to a warm weather location, wear the ABEO sandals on the plane. They are easy to slip on and off going through airport security and with the Aegis microbe shield, your feet won’t stink when you take off your sandals. Now who doesn’t love that?
