So the Mandals Challenge has now officially come to a close. For those who may have missed it, Lauren challenged me to find a pair of men’s sandals that didn’t make her gag. I decided to make it harder upon myself and seek casual leather footwear. It was a long, scary road out there. Here is a glimpse of last weeks search:
Monday: Optimistic because I had a strategy! (Basically researching designer labels for a decent leather option)
Tuesday: The strategy proved to be failing…
Wednesday: I found myself back to the same place. The only sandals found were reminiscent of this man…
Thursday: Mr F.
Friday: This was my best find that day. Are these cool? I don’t know? I think I was looking around so much, I started to believe it.
Saturday: _____________ exactly,nothing.
Sunday: Well the day of rest naturally.
Now its Monday morning and the competition is over. I have to say of what Mandals I did find, I felt that they would best be worn by a mature gentlemen of the Tommy Bahama pursuit.
Maybe the best comfort is sticking to what you know; Rainbows, Havianas, and the Adidas Slide for pool weather. Perhaps there is a mandal out there just waiting be discovered. Sadly, I haven’t found it yet.
