Glad Soles - The Perfect Sandal + a Giveaway


A while back I posted about my transition to Zero Drop shoes. After wearing zero drop shoes there really was no going back to 'normal' shoes. I was wondering what to do about sandals, for zero drop and Asia, and I soon discovered GladSoles - and am so glad I did! 

I have been looking for sandals for Asia that are high quality, not flip-flops, will stay on my feet, minimal and they had to be cute. The sandals also had to be snug on my feet because I can't have my sandals sliding off during rainy season in Asia. (That happened to me in Korea when I got stuck outside in a Monsoon with flip flops and they got washed away). Anyways, GladSoles fit all of my criteria! 

Let me tell you how these sandals work. First off, you trace your feet and send the tracings to GladSoles. You pick out what thickness of sole (there are 3 options), what color laces and lock you want, and they then cut out a pair of sandals customized to your drawings (which is awesome). Once you receive the sandals you get to tie the laces. I really like this because you can tie the sandals a bunch of different ways. You can also tie them tighter / looser to your preferences. After wearing them for a while the sandals begin to mold to your feet. They are super comfortable and so practical.

Man people run gin their GladSoles but I have not yet run (long distance) in mine. What have I done in them? I did a crossfit workout in them and it went really well. Come to think of it we did run about 1/2 mile in that workout. I also wear them all the time: at work, on a walk, traveling and much more! They really are comfortable and I think they are cute. I love that I can tie them a bunch of different ways.

Another thing about these sandals is the soles are Vibram and they will last forever. The sandals are also washable so if you get them dirty you can wash them when you get home and they are good as new. 


I have to give a shoutout to GladSoles because when I contacted them about a giveaway instead of just e-mailing me they took the time to call and directly speak with me about my experience with their product. They also asked lots of questions about what we will be doing in Asia and to me any company that takes time to get to know their customers is pretty darn amazing! So, thanks GladSoles!

Today I'm teaming up with GladSoles to give one lucky winner a pair of sandals. You can pick any type of GladSole you want. The contest will run today through Sunday at midnight. This giveaway is open internationally but if an international winner wins they must pay $19.95 for shipping. The winner will be verified and will have 48 hours to respond via e-mail.

  27. I've never heard of these, but would love love love a pair! I just got a pair of NB Minimus with Vibram soles, and oh, how I love them. I have been wearing "barefoot" shoes for several months now, and now regular raised heel shoes are so unnatural feeling! Thanks for the giveaway!
