I've decided that I must find myself a pair of these for the DR since a.) they are clearly practical b.) they are so attractive. I'm sure all the dominicanos will be following me around and yelling "gringa" at me in these puppies, though it will most definitely be worth it.
These funky flippers are only to be bested with Teva heels which clearly are the must-haves of the mountain. I've decided to try and find both these creations of shoe-wear awesomeness for my trip to the beach so I can make like sporty spice and be sexy and athletic.
