Walking a mile in another’s shoes is the best way to break free from the tyranny of prejudice, but walking a mile in another’s sandals is the best way to break free from the tyranny of shoelaces. Relish open-toed freedoms with today’s Groupon: for $24, you get one pair of men’s or women’s Chipkos Original Sandals in black, white, or red from Chipkos (a $48 value). Shipping is not included in today’s deal.
Chipkos forges eco- and foot-friendly sandals from materials that boast a low environmental impact, including sustainable raffia fibres and EVA. Inspired by classic Indian Osho chappals, the construction of Chipkos Original Sandals boasts a no-fray canvas foot-bed liner, curved foot bed, and a FormCush shock-absorbing midsole that cuddles arches with the support and comfort of a Superman pillow. The sandals can free foot fingers from restrictive loafer dungeons, and their soft canvas straps keep thongs comfortably in place.
Sole swaddlers can choose to snap up a pair of black sandals to facilitate stealthy nighttime beachcombing, red sandals to draw in admirers or white sandals to provide a convenient blank canvas for the feet’s artistic ambitions. As an added bonus, Chipkos will adopt 100 square feet of rainforest for each pair of sandals purchased in conjunction with its Stand For Square Feet initiative, giving buyers the warm and fuzzy feeling of finally being able to help out one’s spider-monkey sibling. All Chipkos Original Sandals run true to size, and are offered in a medium width.
