Summer is the time for a lot of walking, so why not take the Middle Path while wearing these Buddah [sic] Bead Thongs from Esprit? Embellished with Buddhist prayer beads these beauties are perfect for the feet of any faithful.

When strung together, prayer beads make up a mala, Sanskrit for garland. Malas are used for counting repetitions of a mantra or prayer, or for counting a chant of the names of the Buddha. There are 108 beads on traditional Buddhist malas.
