While bench sitting on top of the dunes at Seaside, my wife and I met Jim. We struck up a casual conversation about the wonderful fall weather and other niceties. Jim asked why we weren’t on the beach. I told him how difficult it was for me to keep my balance in soft sand. The conversation then went to The Shore Shoe™. Jim showed me a pair, explained their design, how they kept him from sinking in the sand and how well they helped with stability. To my amazement, right then and there, he gave me a pair, and off I went to try them out.
Immediately, in just a few steps, I noticed how stable I felt and how effortlessly I was able to navigate through the sand.
Now mind you, I am not an invalid. I work out a good bit, take long walks, but walking in sand is an effort I don’t enjoy. So here I am, telling you my experience but it is one you really need to try for yourself.
The Shore Shoe™, it truly is The Stability Sandal™.
I have had foot problems since I was a child. As an adult, I experienced two severe ankle sprains and succumbed to surgery. I could no longer wear dress shoes or sandals. I had to wear expensive sneaker type shoes with costly orthopedic inserts. I eventually inherited the family bunions.
At first sight, I was hesitant to even try wearing The Shore Shoe™ because a change in shoes usually meant an increase in chronic pain. Their wide base design intrigued me, so I gave them a try.
Initially, I switched back and forth between The Shore Shoe™ and my other footwear products, analyzing comfort, foundation and stability. What I discovered was that the more I wore these incredible sandals, the better my feet felt. I use to awake in the morning to a foot pain level of 3 and by bedtime I’d be at a level 7. Amazingly, these sandals have increased my foot comfort to where I hardly notice foot pain anymore.
I can truthfully say that these sandals give me the support I need and the comfort I want with added balance keeping my heels and ankles secure and stable. Additionally, their 3 strap design allows for expansion over my toes which reduces pressure on my bunions. I now wear The Shore Shoe™ everyday, most everywhere I go, with socks on cold days when needed.
The Shore Shoe™ is a “stabilizing sandal”! Strapping them on for the first time gave me the sudden feeling of immediate confidence to walk almost everywhere! And walk I did! I was able to go up the uneven slopes of Fort Desoto State Park and comfortably down the many steps to the beach.
Usually my “come and go” neuropathy, coupled with MS disabilities would have me hanging onto the railings or a family member’s arm for support. I love the new freedom I now enjoy. I am now confident to take walks on the beach, and BEYOND! I love to read a lot but after sitting for a few hours, it is difficult for me to get up and move. Now with these sandals, I can confidently stand up and am on the way. I wear them whenever I have a distance to walk and simply when I’m just moving around my house.
They help a lot!
As a corrective care chiropractor, I understand how skeletal misalignment can hurt, and impact an individual’s overall health, well being, and functionality. The Shore Shoe™ promotes skeletal balance, especially to people who suffer from back, hip, and leg pain, post operative stability, and peripheral neuropathy problems.
Without a doubt, The Shore Shoe™ is one of the simplest, most innovative footwear products I’ve used, seen and can recommend.
I field (beach) tested a pair of Shore Shoes in Costa Rica this December and they are as advertised. They made navigating the sandy beaches and dirt roads of Playas Del Coco a breeze. As nice as it is to walk barefoot on a sandy beach it is not easy on loose sand for longer distances. Even though I don’t have mobility issues The Shore Shoe™ was a big help. If you are thinking of buying a pair of sandals for the beach you won’t go wrong with these.
Hi, my name is Pete, and I am the proud owner of an innovative pair of beach sandals that were gifted to me this past fall at the Jersey Shore.
For fifty-three years I worked in retail as a Pharmacist, constantly on my feet, with my knees taking the heaviest toll. Now, believe it or not, I wear The Shore Shoe™ all the time, with socks on cold days, because the clicking in my knees is gone, and the pain in my feet and legs have been greatly reduced. I believe it is because of the wider platform of the outsole. I am now able to walk in comfort, with confidence, more stability with less pain. They help me everywhere I go. Not just on the beach, but everywhere.
Thanks Jim, your sandals have improved my life.
Love my Shore Shoe. I’ve had severe sciatica and my strength and balance are off. I appreciate your ingenuity and look forward to many more beautiful beach days at Island Beach State Park in Seaside Park wearing my sandals.
I personally want to thank you for my pair of The Shore Shoe™. I tested them when John and I went to St Simons and they were all you aspire them to be. Comfortable, attractive and walking on sand is easier. What a great concept and execution. I know all your hard work will be wildly successful and soon they will be on the beaches everywhere!
I would personally like to commend the person or persons that invented this incredible product. I’m not one to write reviews but when there’s a product that helps me physically it’s time to give credit.
With that said let me tell you a little bit about myself. For as long as I can remember, I love to go fishing down the shore. Maybe a bit more than I should. I always find it to be a problem going from the parking lot and walking across the beach, rather “struggling” across the beach with my gear, because of chronic back problems.
I always feel the repercussions the next day. A dear friend of mine told me about this sandal/shoe called The Shore Shoe™ and how well it keeps you above the sand when walking as well as keeping you balanced.
Though reluctant, I finally gave in and tried it and it did exactly that. There’s no stress on my back and I’m not limited to how far I could walk. When I wake up the next day I’m ready to go again.
I’m sure this can help many other people with ailments when it comes to walking.
The funny thing is under the sandal is a crab which makes an imprint in the sand. Obviously, wherever you go that crab is following you.
I guess it’s safe to say he’s got my back, Literally
My heartfelt thanks is here for my friend who suggested I try and wear The Shore Shoe™ for my weeks at the beach! The Shore Shoe™ provided me with a stable, comfortable footing while walking over the shifting Atlantic sands and along the shore’s edge while picking up shells. The Shore Shoe™ gives me a secure, balanced feeling when I’m crossing the sands with a beach chair, tote bag and the tugging hand of my 3 year old grandson!
Back home I’ve worn The Stability Sandal™ shopping, downtown on uneven sidewalks and love the comfortable, cool and stable feeling beneath my feet. The adjustable straps and open front, toe area also provide the ease to wear my support hose with The Shore Shoe™.
I do not have a closet full of shoes, but The Shore Shoe™ is a pair that have already traveled many miles on my feet when not in my closet!
Thanks for adding more joy and comfort to my outdoors’ time!
I never thought a blessing would come in the form of sandals. But, that is what happened the day I met Jim at the Jersey Shore. Jim is the creator of The Shore Shoe™; an innovative sandal that protects and maintains one’s Balance.
What I found is the sandal is Sturdy, Secure and Comfortable while being able to maintain my Stability everywhere I walk. However, you’ll notice quite a fabulous difference in walking on uneven surfaces, particularly sand. Truly!
My feet didn’t sink and I observed that my ankles and hips didn’t need to shift to walk with Balance. That for me was extremely helpful as I recently had knee surgery.
In my honest opinion, I believe Jim has created something we’ve needed, but didn’t know could exist!
I absolutely Recommend The Shore Shoe™ for you to try. I think you’ll be extremely pleased and grateful as I have been.
On one beautiful, warm day in October, while fishing from the beach in Seaside, I met Joe. Now this was not your normal, awkward, first time meeting of strangers, but one of those rare occasions of meeting someone for the first time and you quickly feel like you’ve know them all of your life.
Joe approached me for some advice on how to use a mullet rig. Joe is an avid boat and surf fisherman, but was simply unfamiliar with how to use a mullet rig. While showing him how to bait up, we talked about who we were, how many kids and grandkids we have, but mostly we talked about fishing.
I learned Joe was 82, retired and just had back surgery three weeks prior. The severity of his back condition is unknown but he moved well and didn’t appear to be in any pain. All of a sudden, Joe noticed some strange footprints in the sand, looked at my feet, and immediately asked … What are those? Do they work? Where did you get them?
The Shore Shoe™. It is my hope it will help get you, and many others just like you, with their travels to the waters edge.
“So nice to meet you the other day!!! I wore the shoes they made it so much easier to walk especially with my back issues I’ve been dealing with.Thanks again shoes are great!!!”
On the beach at the Jersey Shore, I requested this guy to try the sandals.
He was in good physical condition and had little trouble walking on sand unaided. After he tried them, he wanted them.
He was quite impressed with their mechanics and offered to help get the word out. Below is his testimonial.
“About 6 weeks ago I had the opportunity to try The Shore Shoe™. When I started off across the beach I was amazed at how easily I was able to move across the soft dry sand. I was even more surprised to find that the shoes allowed me to move across the wet sand near the water’s edge as well.
I’m no expert on quality construction in footwear, but these shoes appear to be put together very well. I have already ordered my pair and can’t wait to get them.”
They are great for walking on the street when you don’t have sidewalks. Makes it easier to step into grass when car goes by. You don’t feel like you will trip because you bring a stable platform with you. Helps my knees and ankles to stay in line.
Put mine on today and did a mile walk, drove to Emery’s for pies and than went to Mother in laws to share, keeping distance in mind of course, most comfortable and no problem with the pedals while driving! Glad I got them!
Received The Shore Shoe™ yesterday, tried them out today on the shore of Barnegat Bay in South Seaside Park, NJ. They work great! Have had to avoid soft sand for a very long time.
I walked carefully, but was able to navigate the soft sand with no problem! Thank you! Fantastic idea!
I wore my shore shoes and I was smiling all the way to the beach. Up and down the dunes with no problems. I felt very stable walking on the sand. I was so happy to be able to go to the beach with my family again. I had back surgery and walking any distance is painful. Although this didn’t take away the pain, the shoes certainly made me feel stable on the sand. My son in law commented he knew where I was by the foot print in the sand. I’m sorry I forgot to take a picture. Thank you again and I would definitely recommend this shoe.
The Shore Shoe™ fits perfectly with its comfortable, adjustable straps and makes walking across the loose sand on the beach easy because you don’t sink in and there is no awkwardness as you carry your things down to the water. I like easy, maybe I am just lazy. Everyone is going to have their own reasons and these will do the trick. Thanks for The Shore Shoe™!
I wore my sandals all day yesterday and you know, last night my legs were not as tired as they feel most days!
I have 6 plates 12 screws 2 rods 11 wires holding my right foot together walking on sand was very painful. With the shore shoe no problem absolutely love them thanks so very much.
We are home now – the shoes allowed us to walk thru the lose sand with minimal difficulty. They are worth the money!
Just love these sandals!!! They make my feet feel wonderful and are crazy supportive!!! I hope in the future to get some similar shoes that are closed toed to wear to work as well!!!
Love my Shore Shoes always on the beach, but mostly every day at home and outdoors! Highly recommended!
I have a pair of these. They make walking on loose, deep sand a breeze. also great on other uneven and granular surfaces or just plain sidewalks.
