Nomadic State of Mind Rope Sandals Review

I cannot explain my obsession with these rope sandals. They are simply fantastic. They are adorable, affordable, super comfy, durable and earth friendly.

I’ve only had them a couple of weeks and because the weather has been so cold lately, I’ve only been able to wear them out a couple of times. But, I received so many complements!

Nomadic State of Mind Rope Sandals

Nomadic State of Mind has so many products to offer. From jewelry to hammocks, they have something incredible for everyone. These fabulous sandals come in several styles and colors and are even available for kids!

I’d like to point out that the rope is not, in any way, rough.

It’s very soft and smooth and doesn’t rub at all. I was worried that these may cause blisters but am happy to report that I wore them all day and didn’t have one sore spot!

I did, however, get caught in the rain, and for that they don’t offer much protection. But my feet and the rope sandals dried just fine.

They do offer a version of this JC Sandal with a sole that would provide more traction and protection from puddles if that’s something you’re interested in.

After exploring their entire site—I seriously want EVERYTHING they have to offer—I just have to mention these awesome art knobs that can be used on drawers, cabinets, walls or anything else you can think of.

I think they are just charming and would love to put them on old cigar boxes to create a stacked, drawer-like system in one of my closets… I sense a new DIY post coming in the near future… 🙂

I like that you explained that rope sandals are not uncomfortable. I have thought about getting myself a pair of rope sandals, but have been hesitant since they look itchy. I will consider purchasing a pair now that I know that they are comfortable.

I bought a pair of these wonderful sandals in Totnes market. Because the weather here in the UK has been great I have been wearing them all the time. I nearly got in bed with them on one night because I didn't realize that I had anything on my feet. I've walked miles in them too and have had no blisters or rubbing at all. They are brilliant., but they STINK like "cat spray" when they are wet. I was told that this would happen and instructed to "just bung them in the washing machine. The smell will go away" Yes it did, only to return just as strong the moment they got wet again. I remember hearing something about using urine to fix dyes? The sandals are black. so are probably dyed. I have even dropped tea tree oil on them but when they get wet the Tom cat sprays on the tea tree. Has anyone else had this problem? Thanks. Pete

They are insanely comfortable. I have never gotten any blisters in them and walked miles in them. I have not gotten mine wet yet {knock on wood}, but a friend of mine has with her pair. She has a pair from Costa Rica (not this company) and they now smell like sewage. LOL Not sure how to get rid of the smell!!

I want to buy a pair of Nomadz online for a friend's birthday and I'm wondering if the sizes are very accurate! I don't want to have to send them back because they don't fit. Do they fit a bit larger or smaller than other shoes? THanks! Sophie

Yes, the ones that I have are true to size. I ordered my normal size and they fit perfectly. :)
