In the Fall of 2014, two members of the Bedrock Crew, Chief Experience Officer Naresh Kumar and Bedrock Co-Founder Dan Opz, hiked, ran, kayaked, and bicycled the length of New Zealand along the 3,000 km long Te Araroa Trail (TA).
The Te Araroa (TA) is the worlds newest long distance hiking trail. The TA travels through some incredibly beautiful and remote parts of New Zealand that most tourists never get a chance to see. We have posted some of our favorite photos from the trail below. As we have time we will be posting more in depth content, photos, and videos!

Our unique sizing is unisex and based on a Centimeter scale; our size 9/10 means that the sandal is roughly equivalent to size 9 for men, and size 10 for women. Some people find our sizes run slightly small especially in our smallest sizes. If you are deciding between two sizes we typically recommend ordering the larger one.
Print off the size outlines for the Cairn Sandals or Classic Sandals to most accurately find your ideal fit. Please note that you must change Printer Settings to print 100% Scale. Double check this by verifying the ruler on each outline. Give yourself ~1 cm of space inside of the outline to ensure a good fit!
Please consult the graphic above in conjunction with the tracings for more help and/or e-mail us a picture of your foot on the correct outline to get our expert opinion. If you have any additional questions e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org
If you do not have access to a printer, please consult our sizing chart below and note that the lengths on our chart are the ACTUAL sandal dimensions. We advise measuring the length of your feet and ordering a size that is 1-2 cm longer.
