I have been a devoted fan of Tsonga shoes for years now, ever since we lived in South Africa. Their shoes are, without question, the most immediately comfortable shoes you will ever buy.
Let me explain.
I now live in India, in New Delhi.
In late May Delhi is hot.
As in 46C hot.
And when I stepped out for a day long shopping trip and wandering around with a house guest who likes to visit in the heat, I put on a brand new, never-before-worn pair of Tsonga sandals.
“Foolish woman,” do I hear you cry?
“Blisters guaranteed,” do I hear you mutter?
Not a bit of it.
These sandals (below) felt as comfy as slippers, the second I put them on, and after a long (very long) and hot (very hot) day wandering through Delhi, my feet felt just great.
No blisters, no chafing, no soreness.
I don’t know how Tsonga does it, but every single pair of their shoes, loafers, sandals that I have bought over the years has been like this – comfortable from the very second you slip them on.
And it’s not just womens’ shoes. My husband is also a firm believer.
It was on the strength of this claim that I persuaded friends on their first ever visit to South Africa to buy at Tsonga in Dullstroom, and they reported back enthusiastically.
I shopped, as usual, on my trip earlier this month to South Africa, and came home with yet more Tsonga loafers.
Red ones, this time, to make a change from my standard blacks and navy blues.
They are not cutting edge stylish – no killer heels, ladies – but for traditional, classic, elegant loafers and brilliantly comfy sandals, Tsonga is your place.
They also had fab looking boots in their Dullstroom shop, but I had absolutely no justification for buying any, sad to say.
Personally recommended, without hesitation.
I have never mentioned in any of the shops visited over the years – Cape Town, Dullstroom, Hazyview – that I blog or write reviews.
And obviously we pay our own way.
