I don’t have to buy Father’s Day gifts anymore and while I am not saying that as something I am thrilled about but just stating the fact. However I can tell you that when I did buy them I always had the hardest time picking out what I wanted to give my dad. He was so hard to buy for. This year I thought I would give you all the suggestion of shoes from RHEA Footwear. In fact my uncle got two pairs from them to try out and I can tell you they are his new favorites. When Ma lets him wear them that is. She is super anal about keeping shoes looking nice and not wearing your good shoes (as she calls them) out somewhere to get them messed up.
First up was the Classic Slip On Matte Gray which are now my uncle’s new dress shoes. He didn’t really have any before and since he had a few events coming up that required something more than his tennis shoes I thought these would work. I love the gray and my sister in-law said that gray is the new black. It is very in right now! Since she is the fashionista I will take her word for it.
The shoes are made of Nubuck leather with a ventilated leather lining. Not to mention RHEA’s TI stamped monogram, a molded EVA insole, and RHEA’s sub-zero GRIP-TECH outsole. All in all these are some great looking shoes. My uncle said they feel really wonderful on.
Next up are the Vepo Sandals in Black. Now they call these sandals but us southern people call them flip-flops. Around my house however they are just called floppers so if you ever hear me talking about my floppers these are the sort shoes I am talking about.
My uncle lives in the these all year round. In fact I was thrilled when these came in because he had just tore about his last pair of floppers. They were those cheap kind that never last long. These will last a while. I have a pair of RHEA sandals from a few years ago and they are still in great shape. I love them. There is a lot of information about how they are made (straight from RHEA):
- Strap Base: Leather outlining strap base provides smoothness between your toes. The strap base is also reinforced by a special fiber to provide additional resistance to tension.
- Midsole: Patent PU – By using the right amount of density, the midsole provides extra cushion. The design and pattern of the midsole provides additional grip and comfort to your foot’s pressure points.
- Band: Thermoplastic rubber band (TPR) – By using the highest quality TPR for the band, the VEPO’s band provides excellent weatherability, flexibility, and outstanding ozone resistance.
- Outsole: Rhea’s patented world’s best non-slip outsole in matching color
