DC Shoe Co’s Hammock Sandal
Suggested retail: $21.99

With the recent rains in Southern California, I have unfortunately ruined quite a few pairs of sandals and shoes walking through puddles, dodging mudslides, and rescuing small woodland creatures from watery death. (just kidding on that last one)

Enter DC Shoe Co's new "Hammock" sandal. Soft and cushiony on my feet and yet grippy enough on the soles to help me navigate the walk down the goat trail at Black's. The straps are made from soft nubuck, in order to prevent chafing on the vital areas of your feet.

And if you're looking for something a little more office-friendly, check out the suede version of the same model - it's called the "Hampton".(suggested retail: $31.99)
