Synclines with our new Corded Toe-Straps

Bedrock Sandals is excited to officially announce our new Corded Toe-Strap System. We have been testing this system in various forms over the past year in an effort to make Bedrock Sandal toe straps more durable, much simpler to exchange if worn out, and less bulky between the toes. In order to achieve these goals we knew we needed a more consistent, professional way of making our plugs and a system that enabled easy on-the-go exchange if they ever wear down.

Corded-Toe-Strap

In order to make our new plugs more consistently durable we now mold inject them. Across breaking strength and field tests we have found our new mold injected corded plugs to be considerably stronger than the old Bedrock plugs.

New-Plug-Pair

We developed the new plug to terminate a corded system that loops into our main nylon strap. The corded system distributes pressure more evenly between the toes, is more comfortable, and can be swapped out for a new plug if ever needed. We double bar tack our looped webbing to create a super strong long lasting connection for the Corded Toe-Strap.

We recommend all our customers retrofit their old Bedrocks to get our new  and very improved Corded Toe-Strap!

California’s Matterhorn Peak

Matterhorn

Last weekend a few from the Bedrock crew headed to California’s Matterhorn Peak in the footsteps of Jack Kerouac to attempt a summit. At 12, 285 feet, Matterhorn stands as the tallest peak in the Sawtooth Range. We began our ascent Saturday morning at around 5,500 feet above sea level.

The trail began as dirt and within half a mile of hiking become snow packed. We passed beautiful alpine lakes and streams as we trekked along the snowy trail towards the summit.

Dan product tested a new Bedrock Sandal design combined with Goretex socks. This super secure sandal strap / sole design coupled with specialized socks makes this combination excellent in alpine snow conditions. Look for this brand new Bedrock trail sandal to launch this summer.

Unprepared for the icy conditions near the summit we were forced to stop at around 11,000 feet. Beyond that point layed a steep 1,200 foot ascent up an icy couloir which necessitated additional alpine gear.  We will be back with more ice axes and some Bedrock Sandals crampon modifications to reach the summit in the near future!

New Order Status Update Page

We typically build and ship out all standard sized Earthquake and Syncline sandals within 2-3 business days. On occasion, however, we do experience more lag time from high order volumes. Also custom sized sandals production time can vary depending on when we receive foot tracings in the mail. For these reasons we built a new web page for customers to check in on their order status. We strive to offer exceptional customer service and we hope this page will help those customers eagerly awaiting their Bedrocks!
