Love these shoes
February 15, 2012

I have worn numerous pairs of North Face shoes over the years and have always liked them. These sandals are extremely comfortable, I wear them all day. I have a high arch and problems with my feet and I can even take my morning and evening walks in these and my feet don't hurt. This pair makes the third pair that I have ordered in the last three years. I even wash them in the washing machine when they get too dirty. Their not the most beautiful shoe I've even worn but beauty isn't everything. They are wonderful!!

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

Stay out of the boat with these.
June 12, 2012

I just got off the boat after rowing with these sandals for the first time. I kept losing my footing until finally my foot slipped and I fell hard on my butt off the seat. That was the last straw and I threw off my sandals to finish the row in my bare feet. I do not recommend these sandals for any water sports. Unlike a pair I bought 6 years ago, these do not perform well at all for watersports and they are not even half as comfortable for walking. I expect that I will be trying to get in touch with North Face to let them know.

Cons: Wears quickly, Cost, Bad design, Low performance, Poor quality, not safe for watersports
