Are you more of a leather sandal gal (or guy)? Rainbow has you covered.

The brand was created after its founder traveled the world and saw broken sandals littering beaches – not to mention the countless pairs of his own that had broken over the years. The solution? A sandal that would last longer than six months, would not go flat, and would mold comfortably to its owner's feet.
