Beech Yoga Sandals- in pink!!


Just mouth-watering over these puppies from Yoga Sandals for the past week, trying to decide whether or not I should buy them... Pink's my fav. colour- so that's a plus... also the OM charm to go with it... The cost is $29 for the sandals and a total $40US once ordered and delivered to my dad/step-mom's place pre-France final destination. Anyone ever own a pair of these before? Any opinions? I read a lot of good things about them for health/posture so they seem a worthy investment... I am sure there are some readers out there who can give me some feedback... Thanks!

I don't have a pair of those, but other than the toe strap things I don't see how the construction is any different than a regular flop as far as being good for posture. But then again you can't see the foot bed in the photo so I am probably completely off here! I have a pair of Earth flops (http://www.earth.us/shoeDetail.asp?Gender=women&cat=2&offset=18&ID=2546)
Sorry for the long string...but I don't know how to just tag something in a comment.
Anyway - I love them! They have been through water, sand and city and still look new. The heal is lower than the ball of your foot and it has a great arch. Not as cute and funky looking, but I think it helped my back and knee. Or maybe my back and knee just got better...who knows! If you like the pink ones, just buy 'em! Even if they are not good for your feet, they will be good for your spirit!

Ok...the string didn't work...you can google "Earth Shoe Cabo San Lucas" if you want to check them out.

Here is a good site to look at.http://www.earth.us/testimonials.asp.

I like them but not sure about the pieces through all the toes, would really irritate me!!

i am terrible about buying shoes. so my two cents: f you REALLY love the color, and the shoe, and they are only $40US, YOU SHOULD TOTALLY GET THEM. 40US is like 5 EUROS (ok. maybe more like 25-30). just skip your normal starbucks (cause i know i never get out of there for under 5€!) for two or three weeks, and BAM! you've got the money saved. (the toe things would bother me, but they do look fun!)

Susan-- Thanks for the feedback.. I do know those Earthshoes and my friend has a pair and LOVES them! I will check out the website....

Anne- Thanks for the link... As for the toes- TOTALLY know what you mean.. For YOGA TOES... they help separate your toes.. so it's supposed to be a good thing! It may bug me, too.. but, I'll give it a try...

Kyliemac--- OHHHH!! That is SUCH good thinking... I know that is like minus a few trips to the *BUCKS! And, because I NEVER go shopping here in France (serious)I save a TON of money just on that alone!! I do like your reasoning and humour, though! I like the colour and I am SURE I will be the ONLY one in Paris with YOGA TOES!! Everyone will be fixated on my toes - like they are anyways when I where my high platform flip-flops with my two two toe nail polish.. I'm an oddity, I know... That's how I like it.. I like to keep people guessing!! Ciao!

UPDATE: I ordered the yoga sandals... Thanks all for your feedback, I'll keep you posted.

The shoes look great, I'd buy them. I'm still trying to get over the toe nails though, they must have cost more than $40 US
Bon weekend. Debs x
