Why We Chose The Bedrock Cairn Pro: It’s a simple, comfortable, and highly packable sandal.
If the brand behind this simple, yet incredibly useful adventure sandal don’t immediately bring to mind fictional cartoon family ‘The Flintstones’ then you’re nothing like us quite frankly. It took a while, but once we’d got the show’s oh-so catchy theme tune out of our head we were left looking at an item of footwear that seems to epitomise the age-old “less is more” philosophy.
With the 100% vegan Cairn Pro, Bedrock Sandals have managed to merge effectiveness with minimalism. Just a solitary y-strap attached to a Vibram sole, you’d be forgiven for thinking that some of this sandal had gone missing in transit. But, when you think about it, it’s all here isn’t it? Everything you could need from a sandal that can be flattened out and stored in a pack between usage.
“Those Vibram Megagrip outsoles are super sticky and non-marking while the triangular lugs underfoot are wonderfully reassuring”
These things are ideally suited for wet and wild adventures. Those Vibram Megagrip outsoles are super sticky and non-marking while the triangular lugs underfoot are wonderfully reassuring, meaning you can step forth feeling confident in your footing. What’s more, when these do eventually wear out through excessive use, the Cairn Pro is also resoleable. Ideal, we think you’ll agree, for people who can’t quite bring themselves to say goodbye to an old outdoorsy friend.
We’ve touched upon it already but the minimal footbed here really is great at conforming itself to the needs of your feet. Flexible, without sacrificing sturdiness, you’ll love the way these feel when you’re striding across the ground. While we’re on the subject, shoutout to the Cairn Pro’s sole-hugger side wings that provide the wearer with a little bit extra locked-in stability.
