We have some spring newcomers to our Aussie shoe family--the Swamisz sandals! Like our other brands at ABC, they might take some getting used to at first, but once you get them on, you will quickly realize what the hype is all about.
Swamisz is an Aussie owned brand and the all natural rubber sandals are based on an ancient Indian shoe called the Paduka--traditional footwear of Swamis and Yoga masters. They keep your foot in place with a yogi-inspired toe plug and a simple support strap that goes over the top of the foot.
In true Australian Boot Company tradition, we are always on the look out for more comfy and functional footwear and we have found it once again with Swamisz. Traditional flip flops are great, but Swamisz just might be a bit better. You can relax your feet while walking in them--no toe clenching for dear life as you run to catch the streetcar, and unlike the traditional flip flop, the Swamisz neither make the sound of flipping nor flopping, creating a ninja-like silent approach to simple summer footwear.
In the tradition of the original Paduka, you can wear Swamisz while doing yoga, in fact, a lot of people already do. They are flexible and comfy and, if I may say so, they just might be to yoga footwear what Lululemon is to yoga pants.
So come on down, give 'em a go. We have 6 different colours and they are going for $24.95. We know it's still snowy, but you can never be too prepared for spring.
