I’ve reviewed a number of products over the years, but I’d never have expected that I’d review a pair of sandals. I received the Hotter Everdon’s as a present at the beginning of last summer and a family holiday was the perfect time to start wearing them. It’s now been a year and they are still one of my favourite pairs of shoes for warmer weather.
The Ergohacks Verdict
I’ve never been a big sandal wearer. They’ve always struck me as insecure, feeling that they could come off at an awkward moment or that they moved around too much to be compatible with walking more than a very short distance. The Everdon’s are for me the exception that proves the rule – they’re secure and strong and they’ve got the advantage that sandals always have of keeping your feet cool and happy. I’ve definitely exceeded our 30+ wears challenge in these shoes. They’re afforable, durable, comfortable and a great choice for summer.
Price: ±£35 (RRP £59)
Hotter was set up in 1959 and manufacture their shoes in Lancashire in the largest shoe factory still in the UK. They have also got their administration and customer services based in the Lancashire. They offer online sales and have a store network across the UK.
The Everdon is an active sandal that has a fairly inflexible sole. It molds around the top of the foot and has a single velcroable adjustable strap that keeps it firmly on the food. The parts are all glued and double stitched. It’s made of a combination of leather, PU and textiles and while it could take some damp I’d not regard it as something to wear when it’s going to be wet the majority of the time and it’s not suitable for wearing in the pool or paddling in the sea.
I’ve been wearing my pair day after day for the whole summer and apart from a slight adjustment in shape to mold to my foot they’re in perfect order.
