You know those nagging magnets you can find just about anywhere on America’s refrigerators which state:
“If your momma ain’t happy, ain’t nobody happy?”
They usually poses a phenomenally tacky lace bow and hand painted pastel wittiness such as an angry lady’s face… You know the one…
Well the same can be applied for keeping your feet happy and safe this season while adventuring out on rocky trails, sandy beaches or slippery waterways. The investment made for a quality pair of sandals will make or break your experience while outdoors.
So don’t let the tacky magnet quote leak into your experience for the summer.
“If your feet ain’t happy, ain’t no trip gonna be happy”
