I googled "bama shoes" and the fifth entry was "Travelpunk!..." and an entry I wrote. Kinda weird. Anyway, it looks like they're only available at "Reno" shoe stores, and those seem to be only in Europe - Germany and eastward, by the look of it (Switzerland and Austria in the west). You can check out the line at www.my-reno.com
to get an idea what I'm talking about (it's in English), but I don't think you can order on line. Still, it'll give you an idea of what's trendy at the moment, as well as what is available if you decide to wait til you get here to buy something.
You might want to check out Columbia Clothing Company's line as well, they have everything from pretty rugged walking sandals to still comfy but more stylish city sandals - I like them, but all the ones I've seen have a thong between the toes and I can't wear those.
