Nomadic State of Mind Sandals Review

“Sandals to wear while wandering the planet.” I think this statement sums up my feelings about Nomadic State of Mind sandals. Here in Hawai’i it’s too hot to wear shoes. In fact, most of the kids run around barefoot. Funny story: our local public school principal recently enforced a new rule that kids had to at …
