Great post! I have tried various sandals and prefer Bedrock. Love the low profile and light weight. And, for me, one of the best things about Bedrock is the warranty: they replace broken laces for free. I'm a very loyal customer as a result!

How is the "ballistic footbed" performing over time? Could you upload some photos after heavy use? Does it prevent the vibram sole from molding to the foot? Is it slippy when moisty from sweat like the gladsoles street? Have it caused any abrasions or skin irritation?

The footbed does prevent a bit of molding, but should add to durability.

It took a little while, but they have softened up a bit.

The scratchiness went away after a bit of time, but I still prefer naked tops or leather, while I appreciate the use of new materials and its intended purpose for durability and protection.

You've reviewed the Shamma, Bedrock, and Unshoes "primary" sandals over the past year (the ones that are, usually, the all-around models not devoted to trails, that is, the JCs, the Eartquake, and the Pah Tempe respectively). Now that you have had all three in use to some degree, which has worked better for you (particularly from a running perspective)?

I would say that the JCs are the best all-arounder. Great for road running, light trails, and hanging around--the easiest to adjust as well.

The Pah Tempe is great for wider feet, but are a bit clunky-looking and slow when running. They are very comfortable because of their toepostless design.

Unshoes Wakova is a good choice a well, if you like having your straps over the toes instead of between the big and index toe.

The Earthquakes are a great design with a lot of thoughtful touches, but I was not a fan of their elastic toepost for running up and downhill.

I would also recommend you check out the Earth Runners Circadian as another option. This one wraps around your foot on the lateral sides, which can be very secure, but also possible uncomfortable if you have boney toes.

I prefer to have straps run down the line between my big and index toe because it's more comfortable for my feet, but your feet may be different from mine.

My personal favorites are Shamma Sandals JC and Gladsoles Originals/Street.

I still cycle through all of my sandals throughout my runs though, just for some perspective and enjoyment of different designs.
