Once I heard Beek's story about the process of being made to the time your foot molds to the sandal, I was hooked. But wait there was the final test... So once they arrived I choose the style I had ordered for myself (Finch), and started the final test. After just a short time (maybe a 1/2hr) I started to see the story coming to life. They began to mold to my foot. Absolute comfort and a sandal that will last the test of time.
