When you’re trying to pack light it’s always a struggle with what shoes to bring. It’s hard to only pick a pair or two that go with a week or two worth of outfits. On our 2-year round-the-world trip I only have 2 pairs of sandals in our bags.
Over the past 5 years of traveling, I have had to replace a bunch of sandals. At one point, I only had a black pair and a tan pair. Neither pair were cute & dressy, they were practical & comfortable for long-distance walking.
In my pre-travel life, I would have a cute sparkly pair, gold pair, hot pink ones, just about a fun pair for every outfit… lately my feet looked sad. All I needed was a pair of the best travel sandals out there…
Interchangeable sandals, what a brilliant idea! Slinks reached out to me and offered to send me a pair of slinks and a few interchangeable upper bands to try out. I couldn’t say no once I saw how cute they were. About time the best travel sandals have been produced.
How Do Slinks Work?
You purchase a base sandal, either a flat sandal or a wedge. The base sandals come in black, tan, white, bronze, and silver. I picked out two flat sandals, a white & silver base. Then you match interchangeable upper bands that can be worn with any base sandal. Slinks is constantly adding new designs and colors, so you can keep your sandals up to date by just purchasing new upper bands.
Swapping the upper bands takes no more than a minute. Just snap off the old one and snap on the new one. Each upper comes with a cute slinks bag, so it will always have a home.
We recently just took a trip to Langkawi, Malaysia and the only sandals I bought were Slinks. I wore them all day, every day. They were awesome, I was able to wear my silver sparkly ones for our fancy dinner at The Andaman and make them more casual during the daytime. I could have easily explored Bangkok and walked 10 miles a day in Slinks.
I now have 2 pairs of sandals that convert into 6! Plus I can make that into much more with a few more uppers. Looking forward to adding more fashionable upper bands in the future. Slinks truly are the best travel sandals on the market.
One pair of sandals is never enough…
**Thank you Slinks for sending two pairs to try out, as always opinions are my own**

That's such a great idea and they look good, but unfortunately, I can't wear anything with a band between my toes because it just rips my skin (I've tried for any years, and no, it never got better!). I guess I have ultra-sensitive skin... Please Slinks, make a non-flip-floppy model with an upper strap and nothing in-between the toes! :)

What a great idea, these look great and my tattered tan sandals definitely need an upgrade!
