Bandals began with a simple idea, to create a footwear product that would change with the busy lifestyles of today's consumers. After six years of initial designs, bio-mechanicals, foot testing, focus groups and patent filings, Bandals introduced the first truly integrated and interchangeable band sandal. They have worked tirelessly to create an interchangeable sandal that truly looks like a custom sandal. The secret is in the patented slide-through technology. Bandals bands seamlessly integrate with the base of the shoe. This allows the sandal to be quickly and easily changed simply by sliding the band through the mid-sole slot. So, depending on your mood, fashion desires or setting, your ready to go. That?s why at Bandals they say they are ?Changeable By Design?.
