It is summer time which means flip-flops around my house or as Maggie calls them floppers! Although I have heard some people call them sandals as well. I typically try to get a new pair each summer because I live in the south and am hard on them. I wear them pretty much every time I leave the house or go outside. So when RHEA Footwear asked if I wanted to work with them again I jumped at that chance.
Her epic fall inspired me to bring along something functional & stylish (well, maybe not as stylish as the Ruthie Davis she was wearing) on my Maldives trip. So I brought my new RHEA Duos Candy Bar sandals with me to Conrad Maldives.
Other than my runners, I counted on my RHEA sandals to keep me safe through the whole trip, thinking 90% of the time my feet would be wet. After all, what’s more to do in Maldives other than playing on the beach and lazing by Conrad Maldives’ infinity pool with an incredible view of the endless, glittery sea?
The outsole of my Rhea sandals is trimmed to give a sleek design, and it has enough cushion to keep me comfortable all day.
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.Read more...
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.Read more...
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.
Rhea offers a collection of loafer-style flats, as well as a collection of thong-style sandals. The Classic Flats in California Red are the perfect flats for this summer season. The brilliant vermillion red is eye catching while the loafer-cut offers the versatility of being styled with business or casual attire! I styled the Rhea Classic Flats with a pair of Levi jeans and a simple black top from the Loft.Read more...
Their Classic Flat California Red shoes are a bright red suede (as you can see above), but their classic flat also comes in Pearl Black and Sapphire Blue. They are launching their sandals this summer which will be perfect around the pool, beach, and everyday. I wanted the shoes to take center stage so I wore a simple black ankle pant and white shirt.
