Comfortable Sandals

Jambu Clementine Review

Jambu Clementine

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.

The Jambu Clementine is available for $89.99-99.99 at Zappos, free shipping and returns; $89.99 at FootSmart, free shipping; $65.99-99.99 at Amazon, $78.97 at, free shipping and exchanges.

    I love Jambus and have a few pair. I have admired the Clementine often……and though I don’t need ANY sandals, I might have to get those. I have found Jambu (and J41) to be extremely comfortable and very well made.
    I am not a fan of Keen. They cause me to have plantar fasciitis after wearing them for a day. For such activities, I have a pair of Teva similar type shoes that I love, and, although they aren’t as clunky looking as Keen, they are not quite as feminine as Jambu.

    Thank you for this incentive…….I mean…….post……….

    I have to be honest, I’ve been seeing bloggers loving Jambu lately and I’ve never heard about them since few months ago. I’ve ordered my first pair last week and let me tell you that I’m blown away by the comfort. Mine is exterra. I will put this on my wish list

    I just purchased orthotics and I am trying to find an open toe walking sandal that the orthotic will not slip out the back. Any recommendations?

    These are super cute and comfortable. Unfortunately one shoe started to fall apart on my first time wearing them! The worst part was that I was at Epcot when this happened. I was unable to return as I did not have ny receipt.

    I was so glad I had packed my Keen sandals so I had comfortable shoes for the rest of my trip, but they just are not as cute. Not sure if my pair had a rare defect or if all the miles walked were all they could take, but I have not been willing to try another pair. Too expensive for lasting only one day.
