The Telic Z-Strap is made entirely from Novalon, which is an unique blend of elasto-polymers. Designed to provide exceptional cushioning, rebound and elasticity. This means that these sandals not only absorb shocks while you are walking but also retains their shape for longer. So you don’t have to worry about them flattening out through use.
Novalon is heat reactive so when it warms it conforms to the shape of your foot for an amazing level of comfort.
The contoured and orthotic-grade footbed offers great medial arch support and metatarsal support. Complete with a subtle heel rocker to help offload pressure. All of which results in a sandal that can help offer relief from foot pain and common ailments, including plantar fasciitis. So while they may not cure the underlying health problem, they can go a long way to offering some comfort.
The Telic Z-Strap is completely waterproof, non-porous and will float. You can machine wash them safely up to 30°C. While it may be possible to wash them at a higher temperature please keep in mind that Novalon is reactive to heat and temperatures exceeding 50°C for prolonged periods which can cause the footwear to shrink.
The American Dream
The Telic story started back in the Spring of 1920 when a 16 year old Italian migrant named Francisco Azzarito landed on Ellis Island. He had travelled from the small town of Sant’Agata Di Piglia to America, to follow his father’s trade as a cobbler but in the land of opportunity.
Changing his name to “Frank” to be more American he settled in Brooklyn, NY. There he pursued his dream and eventually become the factory foreman of the I. Miller Shoe Company.
Two generations later Frank’s grandson, Rocco, realised the ambition that brought his family to America by founding Telic.
