I have enjoyed it for a year and a half and then the outer sole got eroded and is falling apart. The material isn't strong like the Carin adventure and is made of larger particles stitched together. I have the Carin adventure sandal for three years now and it's still looks like almost new and there aren't such signs of wear like in the Geo (which I own more than a year less). I mostly walked in urban areas and the desert so they were used in dry conditions mostly. I wouldn't recommend this model although it's lighter and more elegant.
Hi Nataly - Our Geo has a thinner outsole and is more designed for light use. That said, your pair is still eligible for a re-soul once worn through.
I would say I will definitely get these again, but somewhat unfortunately I don’t think these things will ever need replaced.
I’ve had both Tevas and Chacos, and I have to say the Bedrock sandals are quite amazing. They are surprisingly secure, despite the minimal strap system. They don’t leave any blisters I’ve encountered with other brands. Will likely buy another pair with the 3D footbed!
I stopped at a local outdoors store to purchase another pair of Chacos. I had the same pair of Chacos for five years. I really enjoyed them. As I was trying in new Chacos I noticed the sales lady wearing BedRocks. I inquired about them. She game me amazing information and I left with a pair of BedRocks. Like any pair of sandals, it takes time to break in. I was unsure about them especially since I haven’t worn anything between my toe since I was a little girl. It was awkward at first until I broke them in. Now, fully broke in, I absolutely LOVE them! I especially love how environmentally friendly they are along with their Re-Soul program they implement. I’d like to add that I wear them everywhere and the farthest I’ve hiked with them is 13 miles.
These are my first pair of "barefoot" sandals, but not my first pair of barefoot shoes (I previously wore Tevas), so I was pretty well adjusted to the concept already. I was concerned about the toe post being uncomfortable, which is a common problem for me. I went with a half size up per advice from other reviewers and that turned out to be the right way to go. Out of the box, the fit was a little strange, but I found making the necessary adjustments easy and I'm very happy with the fit now. The toe post turned out to not bother me at all -- I think it's because it's made up of cord, which is cylindrical, so no rough edges to bump up against the skin. The look is definitely sporty, and the footbed is nicely textured to prevent any slipping. The sole is a bit thick for a barefoot shoe, but very rugged and still pretty bendy, so you'll get mobility and protection but sacrifice some of the groundfeel. They're exceptionally versatile for outdoor activities and can be worn as a street shoe, but the sport sandal look has its limitations. I bought another pair from a different well known barefoot brand for occasions where I have to look a little more put together and I simply don't enjoy wearing them as much as I enjoy wearing my bedrocks. In short, I love these, and would happily recommend them to anyone looking for a versatile sport sandal.
