My Shimano beach sandals have died and I’m quite sure that most of our friends will cheer. I bought these trusty rock hopping, floatable sandals at BCF Mt Isa in 2014. For those of you who aren’t familiar with the area, Mt Isa is about 500kms from the sea. These trusty shoes have travelled tens of thousands of kilometres, trudged beaches of the Pacific, Indian and Southern oceans and kept me afloat in a murky river on a hot day.
They’ve even stayed sitting in the stepwell when the caravan door was flapping down the Bruce Highway a few years ago.
When not travelling they’re my go to gardening shoes, they’ve served me well.
