SANUK Spring 2014-Men's+ Women's Sandals, Slip-Ons, Lace-Ups

 Outdoor Retailer/SLC

SANUK (Thai for "fun") is more than a 'sandals brand'-no matter the original bon mots for their best selling Sidewalk Surfer concept-with the comfy Slacker footbed- aka a 'flexible pillow for your feet...'

We admire how this company never stops re-inventing that comfort factor with style-while staying true to its laid back vibe DNA.

As always, a delightful catalogue we actually read ---with pictures by the deservedly credited, Steve Sherman.

The new newest for this Deckers Outdoors' owned label-  an Instaplay footbed that kinda like running kicks, returns energy to the wearer with each step-not just cushioned support-but some spring for Spring 2014...

AND---what we see in other outdoorsy footwear collections nowadays-a narrower more fashion-y silhouette (no edges)...on trend sleek, less nutty-crunchy...and IMO more user friendly and versatile wearable. 

Big Plus for Sanuk-the construction values (high)- from the outsoles to uppers- are urban terrain durable and sport details not found in other lines. There is a lot of shoe techy know how in every pair of Sanuks for sale....rendering them wearable while pounding the pavement -not just on some sandy shoreline.
Or as the company would opine-from bar to beach...to bar...

HIGHLIGHTS: Plenty-this is a huge collection...and each style comes in multiple colors/patterns.
