Jambu Clementine Review
I’ve admired this closed-toe sandal all summer, but I need a new pair of sandals like a hole in the head. Just last week, I was camping with my family and church friends in Manitoulin Island, Ontario when my tent neighbor shows up for breakfast in these! I freak out a little and giddily announce, “Andrea! THOSE ARE JAMBUS!”
“Yes, I know,” she calmly replies. Of course she knows, she bought them. But it’s my job to be excited about cute, comfortable shoes and then turn around and tell you about
them. Andrea liked the Jambu Clementine because it provided good protection for the toes around the campsite, but didn’t have a clunky look like Keen. See, our team helped with a Vacation Bible School at Whitefish River First Nation in the mornings while returning to our campground in the afternoon to prepare our meals, chase after our kids and clean the tents out. I watched Andrea move comfortably around the community center as she played games with the kids on the tile floor and later in the day at our sandy campsite as she tended to her own five children, on her feet from sun up to sun down. While I wore my burlap sack OTZ shoes (wonderfully comfortable and quite supportive, but VERY plain jane), Andrea looked adorable in her Jambu Clementines. And I forgot to snap a photo…
Considerations before buying: The Jambu Clementine runs small! Order up a half to full size for a good fit. The arch support is moderate, footbed made of memory foam and uppers of soft leather. If you need lots of arch support, this sandal isn’t for you.
