SPAIR Sandals: Eco-Friendly Footwear

Written by Jennifer Nini

Foldable flip flops, foldable thongs, foldable sandals. However you choose to describe them, these little pockets of goodness are popping up in handbags all across the world.

I personally didn’t care for them. I had seen a pair of foldable thongs in a girl friend’s bag a few months ago and I remembered thinking to myself that I would never be caught dead wearing flats. As a self-confessed city slicker with short-person syndrome, I had been known to wear my heels until my feet hurt, at night clubs, at weddings, at racing carnivals and everything else in between.

But then I moved to the country and I became interested in comfort and organic beauty without compromising style. So needless to say that when I received a promotional pair of SPAIR Sandals they became an item of interest. I tried them on, I oohed and ahhed over the colour and style and found them extremely comfortable.  And, as it has often been said, the rest is history.

Firstly, SPAIR Sandals are eco-friendly which probably comes as no surprise to you given the theme of this blog. But what amused me is that they are made from 100% recycled tyres. Recycling is of course high on my agenda, and recycling tyres in this way in my books is quite ingenious. Secondly the sandals are made of earth-friendly leatherette. Vegan chic is what I call it. And last but not least, each pair comes with a convenient, convertible clutch that stores your heels once you’ve made the pain-to-comfort switch. Perfect for those big nights on the town dancing the night away.

SPAIR Sandals are also available in three colours: Black Onyx, Bronze Goddess and Pure Platinum and come in size options S,M,L,XL which fit sizes (5-12). SPAIR Sandals also retail at $24.95 which considering its’ durability, stylishness and eco-friendliness, is a bargain in my books!
