    Hey guys,

    I have been a cyclist for years. My brother as well, he was actually damn good back in his day. We both started a sandal company recently, and I wanted to get the Ride Monkey opinion on if you guys would wear them after riding/while washing your bikes/around the races.

    Our website is: www.BokosUSA.com

    We are a brand new company, so any insight, tips, hate, love, or comments is super helpful and appreciated!

    Ride on,
    Matt

    They look flexy.

    Flexy? I like that! :)

    Sort of sounds like "frickin sexy"? :)

    Thanks for the input!

    Can you run in those?

    You know who ELSE is a runner? I Are Baboon. You should send him and PM and make sure he knows about these sweet new running sandals.

    You could run in them, but they really aren't "running" sandals like a barefoot shoe. But they are really good after getting out of your running or cycling shoes. We wear them before and after working out - easy to slip on, anti-odor, all the good stuff. :)

    Someone should make sandals that support your feet. Wearing your sandals all the time isn't a great idea.

    You're totally right my man. Wearing shoes or sandals without arch support all day is not good for your feet. That being said, when it comes to post-workout, around the campsite, while washing / working on your bikes, around the house getting all your gear ready, etc. - these are a nice option. As long as you're not wearing them 24/7..
