Notable Features

It may not be the style that sets the Taos Dandy apart from other sneakers, but when it comes to the interior, the game changes. Equipped with a premium removable footbed called the Curves and Pods, these sneakers deliver all the support needed by the feet—metatarsal, heel, and arch.

The curves embrace the contours of the foot, giving support, stability, and comfort. The Pods, on the other hand, are firm and absorbent. It offers a cushion that helps alleviate fatigue and remove pressure off the foot.

History of the Taos Dandy

Because of the tight competition in the footwear industry, it can be quite hard for companies, especially those that are new in the game to find the right recipe to survive the market. Founded in 2005 by Glen Barad, Taos was born through a simple idea of producing comfortable and stylish footwear without compromising anything.

Taos Dandy Side

Although it is designed in Southern California, the brand draws much of its influence in Taos, New Mexico, hence, its name. The city exudes an artistic nature, casual lifestyle and serenity which reflect heavily on the designs of its shoes.

Taos Dandy Heel

Because of this, most of its designs carry natural stones, playful embroidery, and metal ornaments to pay tribute to Taos' heritage.
