What can Affect My Sandals' Durability?Updated 2 months ago

Sandals thrive in moderate climates.

Similar to water, the foam in sandals expands in freezing temperatures and contracts in scorching heat. This expansion and contraction can significantly impact the cushioning of your sandals over time, even during periods of inactivity.

Here are 5 Tips to Prolong Your Sandals' Lifespan:

1. Allow your sandals to air out after each wear.

2. Keep your sandals indoors in a dry space.

3. Avoid exposing your sandals to extreme temperatures. Avoid high humidity periods in the summer.

4. Keep cleaners and other chemicals away from your sandals, as certain foams can be damaged by volatile organic compounds (VOCs).

5. Avoid stacking your sandals, as constant weight can alter their foam structure. Also, refrain from hanging them by the strap, as over time, it can cause the strap's strength to degrade.

Remember, all shoes naturally degrade over time. If your sandals become uncomfortable or cause discomfort after a year, it's time to retire them. It's not worth risking discomfort or injury!

By following these tips, you can help extend the life of your sandals and ensure comfortable beach and pool outings for years to come.
