Awesome Sandals!
July 20, 2011

This is my second pair of sandals. I purchased the first pair a long time ago, maybe back in 07. So I’ve been searching for a replacement sandals for awhile. Finally found it here at altrec. I’ve used it in Vegas, Maui, Kauai, Bora Bora, Philippines, Japan, Cabo San Lucas, and recently Bahamas. These sandals have been on all my adventures. I also use it in the house and everywhere else I go. The sandals are very durable, size is true to fit, and quality is excellent! The convertible part is my favorite feature of the sandals, when at home I just leave the rear part off. I’m ordering another pair because it’s hard to find a perfect sandal for me.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance, Ease of use, Great value

Great Buy

I love the El Rio sandals. They are comfortable and great for walking around in a variety of settings. Also, I am a pretty active guy. I find that if I ever need to run or do something that pushes the quality of the sandal a little bit that the sandal holds up and does not fall apart.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Ease of use, Great value
