In Search of the Perfect Sandal: Freewaters™ MAGIC CARPET

Daniel Burnham once said, "Make no little plans; they have no magic to stir men's blood."  Towards those ends, Freewaters™ has combined patent pending technologies and innovative design features to forge the Magic Carpet - a sandal that has plenty of magic to get your blood flowing.

Like the pride of a racing stable, the Magic Carpet leads the pack in performance, comfort, and style. This hi-tec innovative sandal goes places you never thought a sandal could, so get used to the idea of never taking it off. 
Patent pending neoprene flex panel straps are so comfortable you’ll forget they’re even there.  These innovative straps demonstrate that pressure and pinching derived from the foot flexing forward need not be a part of your flip-flop experience.  Moreover, during those rare moments you remove the Magic Carpet sandals, the straps retain form.  While this may seem like a tedious detail, few things can prove to be more insufferable than toe wrestling a flattened strap when you just want to get up and get out.  Did we mention they are also water and vegan friendly? 

Freewaters has raised the stakes in the world of flip-flop design by incorporating running shoe technology into this sandal.  The Freewaters team accomplishes this through an Exclusive Response Arch Shank which creates torsional flex resulting in a spring type action reminiscent of your favorite athletic kicks.  Coupled with the midsole’s 'toe spring' which helps eliminate toe drag, the response arch shank generates an efficient transfer of energy within every stride resulting in greater ease whether you’re strolling the beach or making that long walk to the BBQ to flip the burgers.

Amidst a forest of innovative design features, there was one part of the Magic Carpet that truly resonated with our crew:  A recycled eco-rubber outsole with aggressive tread and siping providing traction that would impress the Michelin Man.  This sticky, water-channeling sole moves water away from the bottom of your sandal ensuring secure footing on slick and sketchy surfaces so you don’t have to hold back when your pistons are firing.

When constructing an outsole that excels on the land and longs for the water, the Freewaters design team put equal effort into fashioning a eva foam footbed that serves as the ultimate welcome mat for your feet.  A brushed non-slip footbed keeps you locked in and comfy cruising through life’s waterparks.  The 3D molded footbed matches your foot's shape and cushions your steps while keeping your feet cool on even the hottest summer days.  

While this sandal seems to lack the impressive arch support of the Freewaters Cruz Control, the Magic Carpet still delivers rock steady support and massive comfort for which your body will be grateful.  At a time when more than one company lays claim to an “out-of-the-box-no-break-in” fit, once again, Freewaters is king of the hill in that category.  Good news for you, because when the sun is out, you don’t want to waste any time breaking in new sandals. 

Bottom Line…
They say that the elegance of art is that it enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time.  If that is indeed the case then the Magic Carpet from Freewaters is the essence of art for the feet.

Exit Note...
If there's one thing we like more than a quality sandal, it's a quality sandal with a humanitarian heart.  The purchase of one pair of Freewaters allows ProjectFreewaters.org to provide clean drinking water for one individual for one entire year.  So go purchase your Freewaters sandals, you'll be doing your feet and the world a lot of good.
