Follow these instructions to take care of your Bedrocks and maximize their life-span:

For footbed's sake, do not leave your sandals in extreme heat (e.g. hot car) or intense direct sun exposure for durations ( e.g. sunny porch).Our ultralight Go Far Vibram® footbeds can warp if left exposed in these environments. To clean your Bedrocks, handwash with a brush, water, and your favorite eco-friendly soap! Let them dry in a shaded environment or briefly in the sun. Do not machine wash. 


To keep your Velcro® heel-strap long lasting, use side buckle adjustment for every-day in and out, and occasionally remove grit and debris from heel-strap by scrubbing with a wire brush.

    Grip to be possibly improved

    Got my first pair a few weeks ago and started immediately testing them on Swiss Alps where I leave. Functionality is good, just need a bit more grip on difficult terrains, like the ones covered with wet stones and leaves. I would suggest a future version with softer soles.

    Feel great look good

    I slapped them on this morning for a walk to the store. As soon I put them on I felt my toes were free but my foot secure. The soles are very thin so on pavement they don't feel awesome. I did walk on grass and dirt for a bit and that felt good to have the earth underfoot. I got a compliment already too! Probably not my go to sandal but I'm looking forward to hiking with it.

    Toughest Sandals in the game!!!

    I’ve worn tevas and chacos working on the river as a raft guide, but no other sandal compares to these! I’ve worn them for 3 seasons of guiding and countless hours of hiking, and they have held up better then any other sandals. They can feel a little tough to break in at first, but after that period they’re great. The customer service at bed rock is also great. This is a rad company and I’ll probably never buy sandals from anyone else. Adventure on y’all, peace.

    Solid sandal...too minimalist for me

    I thought my cairns were well-built, grippy and stylish. However, I returned them and went back to Tevas because the cairns felt like they transmitted the shock of every step directly into my foot. I think I was not prepared for how minimalist the cairn experience was really going to be and unwilling to live through a possibly lengthy period of getting used to the absence of support or cushioning.
