FOR THE SCHOLAR ON A BUDGET: PHG
Don’t be a dodo!!! Spread your wings and soar with Stay Fly, Ornithologists PHG sunglasses. These professorial frames won’t slip or bounce while you live your best life. Unlike the dodos, who lived on the island Mauritius, and watched all their eggs get eaten by pigs, cats and monkeys. What a bunch of losers! We’re not trying to scare you or anything, but the dodo made absolutely zero attempts to stay fly, and now it’s extinct. Nuff said.
FITTING AND ADJUSTING TIPS
How to measure your foot length
- Stand with the heel to a wall and put a measuring tape under your feet
- Read off the measured foot length in millimeters before your longest toe
- If you are between two sizes, choose the next higher, because feet are minimally greater under load

Your feet should be able to move freely without your toes hitting the edge of the footbed.
Before trying them on, put one hand under the toe and one under the heel, then flex the footbed a few times. This will initiate the break in period and will your help your new sandals feel comfy sooner.
Open all straps and step into the footbed. Close the straps comfortably, leaving enough space to allow your feet the freedom of movement. Exhale and enjoy.
For the first five or six times you wear your new footwear, limit the time to just a few hours. This allows your feet and body to gradually get used to the contoured arch support as well as the straps and buckles.
