Sanuk Sidewalk Surfers
By stern on Aug 27, 2008
A trip to the home of the original beach flip flops introduced me to Sanuk sandals, self-described as sandals with a shoe upper -- they look like shoes, but feel like sandals, or flip-flops minus the big toe thong. I think they rely on some of the same physics as the Nike Free sneakers -- using your own foot to keep you balanced and maintain stride, rather than the physical structure of a sneaker.
Now if only that improved balance could help me get up on the surfboard.....that's one that even Software CTO Bob Brewin finds intractable.
