The new Cocos sandals for women are difficult to review, for the simple fact that the SheFlogger has been wearing them every day and the look she gives me when I try to take them off her feet long enough to review can kill a rooster at twenty paces. Suffice it to say the Cocos are eye-catching and, for a flip-flop with no arch support, surprisingly comfy for walking.
The Cocos are named for the coconut shells that provide the material for the straps. The footbed is a woven jute fabric, similar to hemp, that is also known as hessian cloth in Europe and burlap in the Americas. It's a sustainable crop that uses little or no pesticides and is produced in Bangladesh and India. The clincher is that for each pair sold the company buys a school book for a child of a worker in the factory in India where the sandals are made. Nuff said.
