Gone are the days where good-looking and comfortable could not be used to describe footwear in the same sentence. Times have changed and we can confidently say that
Josef Seibel’s Lawson men’s sandal is both a good-looking and comfortable sandal. The design is perfect for today’s relaxed workplace or for leisure. Plus, the sandal not only looks cool, they will help you stay cool. This is because the sandal is constructed from rich leathers from the uppers and linings, to the nubuck footbed, which means you benefit from the natural breathability of leather so sweat and moisture are evaporated quickly through the shoe.
The the casual rounded closed toebox that gives you a shoe-like protection with great wiggle room for your toes. You can also see the contrast stitching that highlights the multi-panel leather construction.
Below, the raised tread pattern gives great grip over a variety of surfaces. The sole is thick enough to withstand stones and sharp objects, but has a malleability that still gives you a good feel for the terrain. The outer sole is made of PU which is very lightweight and durable. Josef Seibel also says that the outsoles are produced in an environmentally friendly manner without the use of C.F.C.
Our feet get excited looking at this shot of the shoe because it shows that Josef Seibel took the time to build in excellent arch support on both sides of the footbed, something many sandal manufacturers neglect. The arches are not just extra bumps of padding, but are cupped by the lateral winds on the outer sole. The result is arches that are actually supportive.
A closer reveals the outer sole is actually hand stitched to the body of the shoe. This gives the Lawson extreme flexibility for natural feet movement while walking and looks great as well!
