OTBT Shoes, Sandals and Boots: Wonderful for Wanderers
You might suspect that with a company name like OTBT (Off The Beaten Track, for those unaccustomed to acronyms), their shoes’ style is anything but ordinary. “Made for walking the road less traveled, we’re the comfortable shoe of choice for restless wanderers,” says the company’s website. Have you heard of OTBT shoes? This unique brand features quality materials, earth-inspired leathers, and great attention to detail. OTBT’s website also says their shoes are “designed with the traveler in mind,” so it makes sense that comfort is a part of their very essence.
Many OTBT shoes feature platforms, wedges, secure straps and footbeds that have good support and/or cushioning – all great comfort features that make their shoes feel good on most average feet, and suit some special-needs feet as well. For example, I have plantar fasciitis and moderate bunions and find several of their styles to be a perfect fashion/comfort balance.
We’ve road tested several styles and found OTBT shoes to be fashionable, supportive and versatile. This summer we’re loving their sandals, but OTBT makes a full line of shoes, boots, and sneakers as well. Click here to read our previous review of the cute OTBT Springfield slingback wedge.
I’m wearing the OTBT Duty Free sandal in the top photo. I recently found them on clearance at Sierra Trading Post and am loving the edgy-yet-versatile styling. I wore them the other day doing errands and they felt good enough that I actually forgot to kick them off when I came in the door – which is highly unusual for me!
Here are more inspiring words from OTBT: “To all you roamers, rovers and rolling stones who know getting there is half the fun, ramble on.”
