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.

Love my Bedrocks!

I took my sandals to Hawaii through mud, streams, rock, slick conditions. I am SO glad I have these instead of heavy honking boots. They have been terrific!! Highly recommend.

Can't Wait

I've been searching and searching for the "perfect" water-friendly shoe for all the things from fly-fishing to keeping up with the children. Searched for a good company (excellent warranty, environmentally friendly), quality, comfort, performance, neutral footbed, lighter weight, relatively stylish. I think I found them and cannot wait for them to become my summer shoe when it warms up.

I Love these sandels

So basically, I have been wearing the bedrocks with Arch support for 4 years (every day!!!!!!!!). I have arthritis in my toes , enclosed shoes really hurt! I accidentally ordered the ones without arch support and decided to wear them. I love these also, they make me use my feet differently. I believe going between the 2 helps keep my feet strong and flexible. So now I’m getting my others resolded. Yeyyyyyy

Good but not Great

These shoes are durable and built to last. However the sole is too rigid, and a little to thick. When I run it claps the ground because the sole lands virtually flat on the ground. I would've bought the classic but they have a bellow ground lacing system which hurts the durability factor. A similar lacing system to the Adventure Sandals but with a thinner or a more flexible sole would be ideal. I know Vibram makes more flexible soles because I have run in merril vapor gloves which have a Vibram sole. Thank you for making a great product I will probably buy more pairs from you. I have years of experience running in Xero Shoes, but I think I am going to switch over to Cairns now that I know how durable they are. I look forward to seeing a sandal meant more for running than hiking.
