Back in the 60s and 70s, people don’t wear stilettos, sandals, and flip-flops too much, other types of shoes are also hard to come by. People walk around barefooted. It’s fun and they love it.
Forget not the earth delights to feel your bare feet.
Today, with all the supermodel magazines where we see models wearing super high heels, and elegant and expensive shoes, walking in barefoot is kind of awkward. People will surely look at you when you walk in the mall or public places with no shoes or sandals on. In their minds, you must be some kind of beggar or probably lost.
But life in an unexploited island paradise is different.
In Malapascua, our creative Maldito Girls came up with the idea to go barefoot while walking around Kokay’s Maldito restaurant. They love serving our guests barefoot because it’s comfortable and makes them more effective. Later on, they discovered some Barefoot Sandals do-it-yourself instructions around the web and thought about making some for fun and wearing it as a friendship symbol.
Seeing it as a good fashion accessory, guests keep on asking where to get those pretty barefoot sandals our Maldito girls are wearing in the restaurant. So then, this became part of our Souvenir Shop making it available for everyone who loves to go bare.
These Barefoot Sandals are easy to wear. Elegant, classy, and an extremely attractive accessory for your feet. Not only that, these sandals are pretty much what you need for all occasions because you can coordinate them with any outfit. Great for weddings on the sand. Works well for a dinner with wine. Or go exotic dancing with friends and dance the night away inside our Bar. Be on the go in an impromptu brunch after your dives or wear this on a boat cruise.
Barefoot Sandals started as a friendship symbol between Maldito Girls so you and your BFFs may plan to walk around barefooted and spend some time together with these sandals on. It is so fun to use, comfortable, and very sexy.
Barefoot Sandals vs Shoes: The Difference?
Admit it, shoes or sandals are everywhere! Means they’re boring. And flip flops FLOP. They can hurt your feet, twist your ankle, and trip on steps. They really don’t provide much support especially when you are walking around a fine sandy beach. Sandals also make some slappy sounds. It will float in the water and slip off your feet.
Generally, sandals are not very COOL.
