I mean, there is 39 useless pages of crap which all have at least one posting per page about Sanuks, I don't get it . Why is there 39 pages?
Not useless crap.
It's sort of a tribute to a great forum member who has passed away while attending the festival. He was one of the first people pushing Sanuks as the best festival footwear. Many people thanked him for the advice and he contributed to the forum in other fantastic ways. If you go to the first page of the thread you'll see his post (user name "carpedm1").
After he passed away some members here got in contact with Sanuk and enough people voiced their praises of Matt and Sanuk graciously offered a new color/style in memory of Matt.
