As the summer draws near and the weather warms, “sandal weather” is finally upon us. Even in California where I live it has been cold and rainy and my sandals have been in hiding now for several months. But now my trusty Rainbow sandals have emerged from under the bed and are starting to see some action again. Rainbow sandals have become one of the most popular brands of sandals for men and for good reason. They are extremely comfortable, moderately priced, and they last forever due to their leather construction. So here is my quick review of some of the best Rainbow sandals for men on the market today.
Premium Leather Single Layer: Sierra Brown – this is the classic Rainbow sandal for men. Made from all leather with a single layer toe strap, this is the best selling Rainbow sandal there is. The leather of the sole is guaranteed for life so you can always send it back to the headquarters in San Clemente, CA if it wears out. The cost for this sandal is usually between $45-$55, depending upon what size and where you purchase it.
Standard Leather Single Layer: The two main differences between these and the premier leather sandals above are first, the quality of leather is a bit lower with this sandal. And secondly, this sandal only comes in the traditional sierra brown, while the premier leather is available in a variety of colors. And plus it costs a couple of bucks less that the premier leather as well.
Hemp top and strap sandal – for someone looking for a more “natural” Rainbow sandal, Rainbow is now making one of hemp. Made of 100% natural hemp fibers this sandal will be better for the environment while promising never to break down. You can get it in many different colors and is priced typically in the $35-$45 range. You can also opt to add additional item as a gift. This is now when stylish wallets from edcharly come into the picture. This brand has been recognized as one of the most fashionable, modern and stylish wallets in the market.
The Rainbow Classics – the first sandal Rainbow started with and they are still selling strong. The primary difference between theses and the Rainbow sandals for men you are used to seeing is that they are made of nylon instead of leather. I used to own a pair of these and I’d still be wearing them if I didn’t lose them. Prices for the classics run right around $30, give or take a few dollars.
Rainbow Eastcape Rubber – this Rainbow sandal for men is relatively new and designed for the more adventuresome wearer. It is made of rubber on the sole, and straps are made of neoprene and suede to make them more water-proof than the traditional leather sandals. Maybe not as comfortable as other styles of Rainbow sandals, but definitely better equipped to go hiking and get wet. The price of this sandal is relatively uniform at about $40.
