I am impressed. I saw these sandals advertised in a magazing and figured I'd try them. What did I have to lose? I could always return them if I didn't like them. Well, I love 'em! They are comfortable and light and stylish. Wow! Great job! I will order more from you. Oh! Also, they came in the mail in no time at all. Seriously. Great job! - Joseph F.

I just wanted to say hey and gush about your product: I bought a pair of the Mountian Momma for my boyfriend and instantly ooozed with desire..We don't have the budget to get another pair right now, so I've been wearing his and even though his feet are bigger than mine, The ankle strap adjusts just enough to let me wear them comfortably. I travel alot on foot with the ever faithful fox dog and these are the most comfortable shoes I've ever met. I get blisters easily, and these barely make my feet pink where the rope sits. I am in loooove with these shoes, keep up the good work, and i'll spread the good word to all of the other nomads I know. -Foxy Momma, Seattle Washington

Here is my coolest experience in my Nomadic Sandals!

It was a late evening in April 2008. The sun was setting, the air was warm, and the Frisbee was intense. As my brother and I were tossing our Frisbee, a breeze picked up and I tossed the disc into the side of the house splitting it and making a hole in the middle. Knowing the night was perfect for Frisbee, I was determined to fix the little problem and continue the good times. In the corner of the room was super glue and what seemed to be the perfect solution to our minor problem. I put the glue on and squeezed the sides together. I noticed the sides were uneven so I shifted the other half up. That's when it hit me. Not an idea but the glue. Directly in the eyeball. Before I could say ouch my eye was sealed and my mother was rushing me to the emergency room. They rushed me in and after a few minutes the doctor walked in. He looked at my eyes and then to my feet. The first thing out of his mouth? "Cool Sandals." That was the first time I smiled all night. So I just wanted to say thanks. Not just for the amazingly cool, durable sandals but for one hell of a story. Since then my sandals have gone to Gettysburg, Hiking across Pennsylvania, Golf courses, Summer camp, the bottom of a lake, the top of a roof, countless trips, and wherever i decide to wander. Now my sandals are beat up and worn but I will never forget the time my sandals walked me in to an emergency room to get super glue out of my eye. Thanks for making such an awesome product!

Hey Guys,
I just had to write you and rant and rave how great your sandals truely are. I'm naturualy sketchy about buying anything online, but you guys were so helpfull and understanding. The whole deal was smooth and easy and the sandals showed up in record time in my mailbox. You realy calmed all my fears about getting them in a timely fasion. But the real pleasure started when i put the sandals on my foot. You see, i have a rather nasty blister on the top of my foot from a certain popular rubber shoe that made working almost unbarable. But after a day of wearing your wonderful JC sandals my foot is already healed. Not so much as a scuff on my feet from the soft polypro, I never thought something could be so comfortable. There as soft and snuggly as a warm blanket. All my friends are getting christmas in august cause of your awesome product. Keep up the good work.

A customer for life,
Kris Bauco

I just wanted you to know that I got the rope shoes today and I am so HAPPY!They are incredibly comfortable. Out here in  Roswell with the aliens and the desert, it is hard to get comfy in the dry heat but these shoes are like little absorbent air conditioned mattresses for your feet. Anyway... Just wanted to shout out a hello and a thank you from the redneck hippie chick here in the Alien city.

I live in Boulder, Co. I am constantly hiking, playing in streams, and keeping up with my hyper dog, and I do it all wearing your sandals! They are so comfortable and so easy to wash! I've been wearing them non-stop (and for a chick that notoriously goes barefoot thats something!) for a year and they are still in great condition. I can't wait to order another style. Thanks for making such great animal-friendly sandals!!! -

 

People of Earth, these sandals are the BEST THINGS I HAVE EVER PUT ON MY FEET! Since happening upon Nomadic State at Bonnaroo 2006, I have become prejudiced against any & all other types of shoes. I dread the wintertime when I have to go back to wearing my sneakers. I rock my rope sandals with socks for as long as the weather permits... sometimes a bit longer =)

Okay, so i have been searching for a sandal like this for years. I frequently spend summer months in the water, hiking, camping, and doing all kinds of things. These sandals have yet to fail me. They are just as comfy and stable wet as dry! I can use them on the jetski without losing them, and can walk a slippery, pebbly mountain stream without faltering! Plus, the biggest thing, I can drive my manual transmission truck with them- the only sandals ever to accomplish that feat on my feet! 2 thumbs up!

p.s., they also don't go "flip-flop" like some of your conspicuous competitors I shall refuse to name for their own protection.

I just wanted to let you know that I recently bought 4 pairs of your sandals, 2 for me, 1 for my hubby, and one for my 10 month old (at the time) he is a year now. We all love them a lot. They are comfortable and my baby boy can walk in them great, perfect for the new walking baby.
Thank you for your great product and keep up the wonderful work.

Both my daughter and I (above) have your fabulous sandals, which we wear EVERYWHERE... school, work, hiking, playgrounds and, of course, festivals!  Here we are at FloydFest, in Floyd, Virginia, having the time of our lives jamming out to Ivan Neville's Dumpstaphunk well into the wee hours of the night/morning.  Everywhere we go, people first notice the adorable sandals on my daughter's itty bitty feet and then they see Mama's matching pair.

And this second picture (below) is yet another hiking adventure... which, of course, she is unable to see a giant rock without immediately scampering up it.

"i got my daughter to type this for me, I am 78 years old, two of you guys snuck into our gated community pool this winter in Florida, somehow you convinced Benny and I to buy a pair of sandals instead of kicking you out.    Honestly, I put them in my closet for about a month, and couldn't figure out how I ended up buying them.  then my daughter saw them as she was cleaning, she asked where I got them because they were so cool looking.  I told her the story and she laughed, she said i should atleast try them out one day.  so I wore them to the pool the next day, everybody asked where I got them, and complimented me on how good they look on me.    I wear them almost every day now.  I think about 20 people who live hear have a pair of your rope sandals now.  I tell everybody the story about how I met you guys.  Just so you know if you are ever passing through this way again , you have a buddy.-jimmy    "you make it worth doing"- nsm

-i've been wearing the toe jo for about a year now, the back heal started to fray a little (i guess i drag my feet), i remembered the guy telling me when i bought them that if that happened you could burn the frayed pard to make it whole again-you guys should put that up on your web page somewhere-also maybe a foot measurement page: and when are you going to add some different photos to the ..on the road page?--jerry, NJ     "thanks for the input jerry we added the measurement page and a sandal care page (just for you) as far as the adding pictures to the on the road page, small progress we have over 10 years of photos and journals to go through (and present photos too)"nsm
