Meet Seaside: Feelgrounds first sandal
Meet the perfect pair of Feelgrounds to wear in summer: Feelgrounds Seaside - our very first sandal.
Update to 2022's production batch: Seaside now features a slightly larger velcro area on the back strap. That's especially useful for those customers wearing Seaside with a tightly pulled back strap.
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 and sizes
Seaside is available in six colors:
- Biscuit Beige
- Burgundy Red
- 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.
How to find your fit?
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 to 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.
We hope you like our very first sandal model as much as we do. If you still have any questions 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.
