Technology Meets Style

I can't believe it's already almost mid-July and that summer is half over. It always goes too fast - and I feel like I'm only just starting to get to wearing my favorite summer clothes and to-do list. We have so much we want to do this summer - as simple as just getting to the pool more often!  
No matter what we've been doing, my style has been simple. Breezy and easy tops with skirts and slip on shoes. I add big sunnies to hide my tired eyes and a bold pout and that's it!  Lots of neutrals lately, too. 


Spring has finally sprung and with it, sandal season. Just in time, California-based footwear start-up Rhea has engineered a line of sandals specifically for traction on slick, wet surfaces. Through a year of research and development Rhea refers to as the "Grip Project," Rhea came up with a "Griptech" rubber compound similar to the rubber used in space shuttles for maximum grip and durability. The treads are designed to push liquids away for increased contact between the sole and the dock, dinghy, or cockpit.



The sandals use Rhea’s fully patented outsole technology. One of the videos on Rhea Footwear’s Kickstarter page demonstrates this technology against other sandals. The sandals are offered in four different colors – burgundy, navy, green, and black. The sandals also use a midsole cushion to provide extra comfort and a special fabric infused within the strap to provide extra strength.

“Currently there are no other sandals in the market that utilize this outsole technology. Sandals benefit so much from this technology because you are likely to step on wet and slippery surfaces while wearing them,” says CFO John Lee.



Anyone else hoarding beach style ideas and dreaming of piña coladas (but not getting caught in the rain)? We simply cannot wait for some summatime. While you’re out there considering warm-weather purchases, take into consideration these flip flops from Rhea Footwear that promise to be not only stylish, but also the safest on the market.


I love wearing flip flops in the summer! Flip flops and sandals are so easy to slip on and comfortable! In my opinion this new innovative line is brilliant! I have to say that I’m very clumsy and I always ending up tripping over my feet or fall when wearing flip flops and sandals because my sandals and flip flops do not have proper grips on the outsole. With the new launch of Rhea Footwear’s new innovative line of sandals, these sandals will minimize my mishaps and injuries. In my opinions, I think many people will be speechless and curious about this new invention!
