Behind the Scenes at Bedrock Sandals from Blue Ridge Outdoors on Vimeo.

Located in a small warehouse outside of downtown Charlottesville, Va., two friends from AmeriCorps are hard at work creating the latest in minimalist footwear: the Bedrock Sandal. Modeled after the traditional huarache, these lightweight sandals are made entirely within the U.S. Check out what co-founders Nick Pence and Dan Opalacz have to say about their company and their mission.
