Santa Baby, Slip Some Tevas Under the Tree…
For starters, my bestie since I was 8 sent me these adorable Teva Westwater maryjanes. I wore them for a marathon Boxing Day shopping spree and it was a highly successful road-test (read: no blisters!). Amazon has a great sale going with more than 50% off on certain color/size combinations. (Mine are the Pesto variety.)
Coincidentally, my sweet husband also got me Tevas—a brand-new pair of the Olawahu sandals. I bought my first pair back in 2005 on a trip to Hawaii and they’re the only type of “flip-flop” I’ve purchased since. Admittedly, the bottom of the “mush” sole has gotten tougher since then, but all three previous pairs are still in rotation. This year’s edition are the Little Bay Mystic color, which will look great with linen pants this summer. Sierra Trading Post still has them on sale for $16 if you want to grab a pair.
The final pair Santa brought me may not necessarily count as “shoes,” but the weatherproof sole is strong enough to wear when I take the dogs out, so I think they count. They’re Acorn slippers with a memory foam inside and cute snowflake fleece outside. Let’s just say I’m in heaven! Sierra has them now for $25 (down from $44) and I highly recommend.
