Our daughter (6 this August) will be going to summer camp for the first time starting in mid-June. We just got information from the camp and it said that campers will need closed-toe shoes. Uh oh. I just had bought her sturdy Timberland sandals with great soles for camp. Oops. Any recommendations on closed-toe shoes or sandals for HOT Walnut Creek summer weather would be greatly appreciated. Velcro preferred, and my daughter is into traditionally ''girly'' stuff and so won't wear just anything (e.g., the Timberland sandals have pink and purple straps - that was enough to get her to like them). I need to buy these before June 14th, so send your recommendations my way please! Oh yeah - she is a size 11-12 in a shoe. THANKS! Lori
Because of China's diplomatic stance and their record on human rights, I am trying to find some water-amenable sandals for my 3-year-old son to wear this summer when at the lake, or running through the hose, or in the wading pool, etc., but I cannot find anything like this that is not manufactured in China. I've already ascertained that the Lands' End sandals, as well as Teva sandals, and innumerable cheapies at Target and the like, are all manufactured there. Has anyone found a solution to this dilemma, that is to say, sandals from (almost) anywhere else? Wendy
Here's a quote straight from Hoy Shoe Company in St. Louis, MO. They are the makers of the Saltwater Sandal which is very durable. (and I think, very cute)
"Thank you for your interest in Hilltop Stride Rite. All Hoy sandals
(saltwaters) are made in the USA. The insoles are split leather. The
are either real patent leather or split grain leather. The soles are boat
approved hard or soft rubber, depending upon the model."
