When I moved to Miami, I left 90% of my wardrobe in NY, including a majority of my shoes. On my first beach trip, I noticed right away how modestly I had packed, because I brought no beach-worthy sandals with me!
Not too long after I arrived, I came across the Gurus Instagram, and had to reach out to try a pair.
Gurus are the modern twist of a vintage Indian design. The signature toe-post is based on the 5,000 year old Indian sandal that was actually worn by Mahatma Gandhi. They’ll comfortably hold your foot in place without "scrunching" toes, and have no problem with them slipping off of your feet.
They are made primarily from natural rubber that is sustainably sourced from trees. Everything in the sandals is eco-friendly, and come in environmentally conscious packaging.
Unlike traditional flip-flops, the ankle strap is adjustable, and twists to fit all ankle sizes. The natural rubber sole is thicker than most flip-flops and molds to your feet over time for added comfort.
Gurus come in a variety of colors and patterns, for men, women, and kids. They are priced at $30, $32, and $35 depending on your color/pattern choice.
The best part about these sandals is that through a partnership with Trees for the Future, Gurus will plant a tree in the developing world for every pair purchased.
