Colorado doesn’t have physical shops anymore (they do have an online presence, however). I have always loved their products, especially their shoes.
See these sandals. I had them for at least 10 years before I was forced to put them into retirement (aka the bin).
These of course were the sandals I always took when I went on holiday.
It wasn’t until I got to my mum’s house recently and went to put them on that I discovered that the sole was completely worn and torn and broken.
It was time to get them replaced. Bye bye, Colorado’s, you served me well.
I knew the type of sandals that I wanted to get. I didn’t want anything like a flip-flop/ thong. I also wanted a strap around the heel. I wanted a sandal that was solid, comfortable for walking in, but also stylish.
I ended up finding what I wanted at The Athlete’s Foot store in Werribee.
The Athlete’s Foot doesn’t just do running shoes, they also have a variety of walking shoes and sandals.
Merrell has been around for over 25 years, and they provide outdoor enthusiasts a quality performance product for both active and urban activities and environments.
The Merrell Hibiscus sandals come in two colors black (shown) and ivory. I loved the teal accents of the ivory, but I just didn’t like them with my skin tone. So I went with the black/grey instead.
One of the first things I noticed when I put these sandals on was not only how light in weight they were, but their softness and comfort.
This all comes down to the Merrell design of Q form.
Merrell understands that women move differently from men, so they have designed a product to reflect that.
Some main aspects of their design are:
- Air cushion at heel strike
- Firm support at the midsole
- Neutral density cushioning
That might sound like a whole bunch of jibberish for some of you, but to make it super clear these are the type of sandals you could walk for hours in.
And hours of walking I did in these shoes, no rubbing, chaffing, or blisters occurred, just super cushioned comfort with each stride I took.
If you are looking for a quality sandal that offers style, comfort, and lightweight, then do consider these shoes.
I was not asked to review these shoes, and the full purchased price was paid for this product
