I first heard about Saltwater sandals back in February, at the McMaster and Storm website. I decided I had to have a pair, despite the fact that they were being targeted as perhaps "the ugly shoe of spring 2008," in a class with --gulp-- Crocs.
Well, ugly is in the eye of the beholder, and I'll take these over Crocs any day. They're simple, sturdy, inexpensive, they come in many colors, and they're made in the USA. What's not to like? And what they say is true: You really can wear them into the ocean without destroying them!
So will they become the next Crocs? I don't know. Apparently they've been spotted on many celebrity kids, and they're certainly popular with bloggers, but I haven't seen anyone wearing them in real life yet. What do you think? Would you wear them?
