The Rio Grande Sandal From Nunn Bush (Review) – Perfect For All Occasions

Nunn Bush has specialized in manufacturing men’s shoes since 1912. Their company was first launched in Milwaukee and 100 years later they are still in the same place and working towards the same goals. Their shoes are designed specifically for men for various occasions, age ranges, and purposes. They state that their mission is to create footwear that combines superior comfort with understandable style. So far, they are doing a pretty good job of achieving that mission.

Nunn Bush has several lines of shoes and sandals that are pretty popular, but the Nunn Bush Men’s Rio Grande sandal represents one of their best values. It is a surprisingly affordable sandal, yet it’s made from high-quality materials, includes all of the features of a high-end sandal, and it looks great while doing it.

In terms of appearance, it features an open-toe design with three straps. The third strap is located in the back of the sandal. The design makes this a great choice for nearly any occasion. If you plan on spending time outdoors this summer, then you’ll want to have this sandal with you.

It’s not just the classic appearance that makes this such a great investment. As it is a river sandal, it has a rubber outsole with strong traction and grip. It’s not exactly waterproof, but it’s perfect for when you’re walking near the water and you don’t want to slip. That traction and grip also make it a great shoe for seniors who could get seriously hurt if they were to slip and fall.

The footbed is made with an open cell foam compound. The footbed is capable of safely absorbing the pressure from every step; whether you’re walking or running. Combine that with the shock absorption provided by the rubber sole and you’ve got yourself a great sandal for staying active. It can help greatly reduce foot pain as well as pain in the hips and lower back.


  • Man-made upper that is very durable
  • Extreme grip and traction help you stay standing
  • Affordable and stylish


  • A tight fit means you may be better off ordering a larger size

Final Thoughts

The Nunn Bush Rio Grande is a men’s sandal for all occasions. Are you a senior who needs a sandal with traction and support? Do you plan on spending a lot of time this summer outdoors? Do you need a sandal to wear by the pool? Or do you just need a sandal that will keep you comfortable while exercising? If you said yes to any of these, then the Rio Grande is for you.
