Marblehead, Mass. (Feb. 15, 2024) – After tens of thousands of miles trekking, rafting, and biking in Cairns, Bedrock’s flagship sandals are getting an upgrade for SS24 with the new Cairn Evo series—an evolution in both fit and function. From the ground up, Cairn Evo and Evo PRO sandals are now more durable and grippy than ever thanks to new Vibram soles. The Cairn Evo line gets a traction boost with outsoles made from Vibram’s new XS TREK EVO compound, giving more stability on loose rock, water, and even snow.

Bedrock’s patented sole-hugger wings now feature a stitch box that buries threads and keeps them from abrasion. The toe-triangle on its 3D models have been mellowed-out for more comfort. Bedrock has redrawn the top-down profile of the original Cairn, adjusting the toe swing to accommodate a wider range of feet. Cairn Evos now also match US-standard sizing for a familiar, predictable fit.

In response to consumer demand, Bedrock has also added a new edition to the lineup: the Cairn Evo C. Kicking the cushion up a few notches, the Cairn Evo C is built around a thicker, padded Vibram footbed, ideal for lake lounging, long jogs, or all-day city strolls. Cairn Evo C are the cozy-sweater siblings of Bedrock’s full Cairn line, with the same rugged DNA. Cairn Evo is available in five models along with a host of fresh colorways.

Dropping alongside the new Evo line is a brand-new colorway for the popular Mountain Clogs, Desert Clay in Suede Leather – expected to be a new favorite among capable clog enthusiasts.
