New sandal styles named after 3 remarkable women who have or are still involved with Stephen Bonanno Sandals in one way or another.

Our Rock -- worked as store manager 2007--2008

The Ball of Energy ... worked with us for the past 3 seasons

It's Personal ...

For 2 years I had pretty severe pain in my right arm. Don't know why, but I couldn't move it without having sharp pain running up and down my arm ... after months of immobility my arm stiffened where I couldn't move it.

I went for acupucture which helped a little, but if I moved it the wrong way, ouch! So I protected my arm and tried to use it as little as possible. 2 years I learned to live with the pain.

This is the amazing part ... 2 weeks ago I stopped drinking MonaVie because I just forgot or got too busy. I swear folks, in the two weeks "without" MonaVie I was quicky reminded I had a bad arm. I totally forgot! It had been that long since I felt any pain ...

The 2 months I have been drinking MonaVie for ENERGY has actually helped with the healing of my arm too. It was at that moment that I realized just how amazing this health drink really is.
