Since Bedrock began in 2011, Naresh Kumar has logged thousands of miles in our sandals on his human-powered adventures around the world.
In 2014, Naresh and Dan Opz (Bedrock Co-Founder) hiked, ran, rafted, and biked the length of New Zealand along the Te Araroa Trail. Along the the trail, Dan filmed Naresh with a lightweight Sony camera, using his trekking pole as a makeshift tripod.
A year later, while dirtbaggin' through the South Island, Naresh met a German film student Linus Herbig-Matten who was so inspired by his story that he took Dan's footage and created a short film. We are excited to finally release Naresh's story here along with the footage we captured on our hike through New Zealand.

The amazing people of New Zealand!

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 email@example.com
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.
