Will wear these until they break
June 11, 2013
So I've had these for about 3 weeks at the time of this review. I've worn them walking to the neighborhood pool, walking the dog, hanging out and grilling and to a large amusement park and I'll be using them as my primary shoe at the beach in a few weeks. These are replacing my flip flops, traditional sandals and walking shoes. So far they are extremely comfortable with only a small amount of initial irritation caused by one of the plastic rings that allows the strap to be tightened around my ankle. But this went away as it broke in pretty quickly. I love how they combine a minimalist profile and feel with some thickness in the sole for protection. I normally wear Vibram Five fingers or Merrell Vapors for running and training and I appreciate the level of support these offer to give my feet some recovery time. I had started to develop a small case of chronic plantar fasciitis until I started wearing these for about a week. They're great in wet conditions, really allowing my feet to breath and dry off, unlike leather sandals I've had in the past that wrap around the ankles in a similar way and stay damp. Also, one of my favorite features is that there's no velcro, which I find always gets ratty. The cinching system around the ankle works great for me.Pros: straping system, profile, comfortable, perfect amount of support, breathable
