Freewaters Inc. announced the launch of an exclusive new sandal collection co-developed with Therm-a-Rest, the leader in premium outdoor comfort. Two men’s styles that feature Therm-a-Rest foam foot beds will debut at Outdoor Retailer on Jan. 23rd for summer 2013 delivery.

“This type of partnership is something rare and really special,” said Freewaters Co-founder Eli Marmar. “Not only do Freewaters and Therm-a-Rest have perfectly symbiotic product technologies, we also share a passion for transforming lives through clean drinking water projects.”

The proprietary foam formula provides the unique combination of instant comfort with strong rebound and durability. The signature Therm-a-Rest ridge pattern provides insane grip, flexibility, air circulation and water sipping. Combine all this with Freewaters ergonomic midsoles and attention to fit and the result is a total game changer in sandal comfort and performance.

“We are excited to work with a brand that values quality, innovation and philanthropy,” said Therm-a-Rest Vice President Doug Jacot. “We believe this partnership will raise the bar for sandal performance and for how companies work together to help solve global issues.”

By coincidence, Freewaters and Therm-a-Rest’s parent company, Cascade Designs, Inc., have been working independently on water projects in Kenya. A portion of the proceeds from each pair of these new co-developed products will support a new collaborative water project, which will be announced in early spring 2013.
