Jeep Shoes. – As my scruffy heels bear testament, I don’t like to wear shoes.
I think my early childhood memories imprinted on me the freedom of a barefoot existence, where days and nights were spent with a Free State born abandon and even in Winter, my parents had to encourage me to put on slippers after my evening bath.
Today my adventures around the globe call for a varied options of dress. The past year bringing mostly Summer style destinations that hadme in what I would call minimalist shoes. As in, less is more has never been more appropriate than to my freedom loving feet. Needless to say I can scrub up like the best of them, but even at the luxury resorts, I am known to kick off those shoes.
All this meant that when I was contacted by Lebo of Tribeca Public Relations regarding sending me a pair of Jeep sandals from Footwear Trading to review. I uncharacteristically jumped at it with a yes please. Offered a variety from which to choose, I opted for this casual slip on, mostly because I loved the yellow.
The official description goes as follows and they retail at around R300:
‘Flip flop your way to summertime freedom in the Sage Canvas Slip On Sandals by Jeep. The ultimate in leisurely warmer weather footwear, these slip on sandals come replete with thong strap and soft underfoot cushioning to keep your feet airy in the heat. Pair them with denim shorts and a casual shirt for a laidback look on weekends.’
Mine arrived a couple of days before Christmas, just as I was headed to Pringle Bay for some family time. Since then I’ve worn them almost every day. On dirt tracks, for long walks, to and on the beach, on the farm, in town and around the house. They are wonderfully comfy, suitably robust for a girl who’s hard on shoes and I like the way they look on my feet.
