Sandals come in two types: those you can step into and those you can't get out of.
The first kind of sandal
is the classic, descended from thousands of years of development
from all parts of the globe
. The best ones of this kind are usually leather
, and will last for many many years.
The second kind of sandal has become popular in recent years thanks to companies like Teva
. They contain new materials, sometimes a bit of leather, and often neoprene
. These are often sold as extreme
. They are expensive
and wear out faster than classic sandals.
I prefer the classic sandal. The newer sandals make my feet sweat
. And I have to bend over
to undo the velcro to take them off or put them on.
