Bedrock Co-Founder Dan Opz and our Ambassador Naresh Kumar are headed out on a 4 month adventure along New Zealand's Te Araroa Trail. The Te Araroa is a brand new 3,000 kilometer long trail that travels the entire length of New Zealand (both islands). Dan and Naresh will be tramping the Te Araroa in our new Bedrock 2.0's.
Follow along on instagram @bedrocksandals, @specialopz, @iamarunr for daily glimpses into life on the trail through one of the most beautiful and wild countries in the world.
