"Barefoot" work/casual shoes - SALE

Guys, I just got it in my email that Terra Plana is having a July 4th sale. Between July 2nd and July 4th, you get 40% off any of their shoes with the coupon code "JULY4".

For any of you that want "barefoot" shoes for work, but complain about the price of these babies... this is your time.

What's the sizing like on those Bo? I normally wear 10.5 but noticed they only have 10 or 11 for the dharma's.

Matt, they tell you to go a size up. I'm usually a 10.5. For most shoes, I'll order a 43 euro size, but for the dharma's I went for a 44. They fit fine.

Thanks for the heads-up! I've been eyeballing the Dharmas for a while, but the price was really holding me back. I will definitely pick them up.

Awesome! I need a backup pair of black Dharmas -- the ones I've got are starting to show some wear and tear because they're the only shoes I wear to work!

Re: "Barefoot" work/casual shoes - SALE

Count me in- I've gotten grief wearing my VFF to work, although they fit in the dress code, by people wearing shoes that are specifically mentioned to NOT fit in the dress code. Thinking about getting the Dylan, or perhaps some Dharmas.

Re: "Barefoot" work/casual shoes - SALE

they look good, and seem to fit my bill for shoes

But how durable are these shoes?

Jonathan... I've had a pair of the Dharma's for exactly a year now. I've worn them to the work every single day, with very few exceptions. They seem to have very little wear. I feel like they'll easily last another year. Very well constructed.

One of the first things to go with other shoes is the insole, but this shoe doesn't have one, so it's no issue lol
