I first discovered TKEES 8 years ago, and in that time, I’ve owned more pairs of them than any other brand of shoe. Ever. I love how much more stylish they are than fat rubber flip-flops, plus they’re comfy, go with absolutely everything, and actually last several summers, despite how hard I tend to wear mine.
The one downside: When they get wet, they fade a little faster than I’d like, and shoes do tend to encounter a little water here and there over the summer.
Behold! For TKEES has introduced new waterproof sandals, aptly called TKEES Swim, and I am already reaching for my credit card.
(Note: I was not lying! See update below.)
I love that they have the same sleek silhouette as their original leather flip-flops right down to the subtle contrasting tone of the brown rubber heel. TKEES Swim only come in three shades — for now — but between the cream and the black, I’m all set. Plus, they’re just $25 each. Wow.
Actually, scratch what I just said. Bring out more colors, please.
UPDATE: I immediately bought two pairs, as promised, and these are definitely going to be the shoes I wear all summer long.
I gave them a good workout on a recent beach trip and they are comfy, waterproof as promised, and looked so much sleeker and more stylish than all the clunky slides and other fat-soled flip-flops lined up along the pool. Plus I love how they go from day to night in a more casual environment. 10 out of 10!
