Meet Seaside: Feelgrounds first sandal

29 June 2021

Finally, we can offer the perfect pair of Feelgrounds to wear in summer. Meet our very first sandal model: Feelgrounds Seaside.

Feelgrounds Seaside is the ideal minimalist unisex barefoot sandal for everyday wear. When creating this model, we have focused on natural and breathable materials. The cotton used for the straps is soft yet durable, and the cork used for the insole provides a very comfortable feel against the skin of your feet. Just like all our other models, Seaside is 100% vegan. 

Seaside’s sole is made of durable rubber material with a flat profile. The sole is very flexible and, of course, completely zero-drop. The sole thickness of  7 mm / 0.27 inches allows you to feel the ground beneath your feet, yet it is thick enough for a comfortable walking experience on asphalt and other hard surfaces. 

 

Colors, sizes, and fit

Seaside is available in six colors: 

  • Biscuit Beige
  • Burgundy Red
  • Black
  • Deep Olive
  • Dusty Pink
  • Stone Grey

Our new sandals are unisex and, like all current Feelgrounds models, available in sizes EU 35 to EU 49. 

In general, 5 - 8 mm / 0.2 - 0.3 inches space in front of your toes is sufficient for sandals, as too much space can quickly lead to stumbling. Therefore, Seaside’s soles are slightly shorter than those of our other models to ensure a true-to-size fit. 

That’s why - in most cases - we recommend the same size for Seaside that you usually wear in your other Feelgrounds. You can find the exact measurements for Seaside’s sole length and width on the Seaside product page under "sizing info".

However, choosing your perfect size of Seaside depends not only on the length and width of your foot but also on your instep volume. The strap that runs across the midfoot has an elastic band on the inside to allow a good fit for different instep volumes. 

Seaside is perfect for feet with medium to low instep volume. For customers with a very high instep, we recommend choosing one size larger to ensure a more comfortable fit. Seaside also has an adjustable heel strap with a velcro closure that allows you to adjust the position of your foot on the sole.

 

How can I clean Seaside?

You can clean the cotton straps of the sandals with a soft brush, a little water, and a gentle detergent (e.g. our Cleansing Kit Eco & Cleansing Foam Eco). To remove loose dirt from the sole, we recommend using a soft, dry brush. Afterward, you can spray a light layer of disinfectant spray (e.g. our Shoe Deodorant Eco) to neutralize potential odors. 

Please note: Cork is a natural material and can change its color when it comes into contact with water. Therefore, discoloration over time, e.g. due to sweat, is completely normal.

 

When will the pre-orders be shipped?

Currently, Seaside is only available for pre-order. However, since the production of the first batch is already in its final stages, we expect to be able to ship your pre-orders by the end of July. As soon as the freshly produced Seaside batch arrives in our German warehouse, we will let you know via social media and you will receive an email with your tracking information as soon as your pre-order is on its way to you.

 

Why pre-order?

The quantity of the first production is limited. Therefore, your desired color/size combination may be sold out soon. With your pre-order, you can secure your favorite pair. Get your pair now.

 

What is the return policy for Seaside pre-orders?

Your Seaside pre-order is subject to the same return policy as our regular items. If your sandals don't fit you as expected or you don't want to keep them for any other reason, you can return them, as long as they are unworn, within 30 days of delivery. The 30-day period does not begin until the date you receive your pre-order.

 

We hope you like our very first sandal model as much as we do. If you still have questions about the pre-order or need personal advice regarding size, fit, or anything else, our support team will be happy to help you. Just get in touch with us via our contact form.

Your Feelgrounds Team
