Our sizing is unisex (e.g. size 9/10 is equivalent to size 9 for men, and size 10 for women.) Some Bedrockers find our sizes run slightly small, especially in our smallest sizes.

In the short time I have owned these sandals I can say that I have really enjoyed wearing them both on and off the trail. The quality, fit, and finish is top notch. I would definitely recommend these to anyone looking for sandals that are capable of handling rough terrains without the unnecessary weight or bulk like the competition.
The Cairn 3D PRO sandals aren't trying to be minimalist like their Classic cousins, and what they are is durable, comfortable, and nice to look at. I like their flexible footbed better than I've ever liked Chacos, and I like their shape far better than the recent years of Teva offerings. I also like that they don't artificially separate men's and women's sandals (though REI took that route with Bedrocks for some reason) for sizing or design. I wore them constantly on vacation in Florida, with lots of walking an a little flatland hiking, and very much liked the grip and stability. The latter surprised me because I wondered how that would be, with the three-point anchoring. Still haven't taken them to the mountains, but from what I saw these stand a good chance of being just fine. I hope they last me forever!
I wore them exclusively for a week straight, super comfortable right out of the box. Looking forward to many years of use
I have worn many types of sandals for various activities (hiking, beach, lounging, kayaking) over the years. After wearing these for a couple of months… I absolutely love the Cairn 3D Pro. I love them but not quite perfectly. Sizing….. I normally wear around US 11 or UK 45 depending on manufacturer. I like that Bedrock has the print and test option. I followed the directions with the 100% sizing on the printer and tested the size. I feel that the test page was slightly off compared to the actual sandal. I have the us 11 size and my feet just fit on them. I debated returning for a size 12 but decided to try them out anyway. I use them primarily to kayak across Pearl Harbor to work every morning and throughout the day. Comfort, style, and absolutely awesome grip and feel has sold me on these. I will order another pair down the road and try the size 12. Unless an item is in my opinion absolutely perfect…. I do not rate 5 stars. Maybe the size 12 will be? I absolutely will be a repeat customer.
Once I made the fit adjustments, I found them very comfortable.
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.
