Super summer sandals
on May 2, 2011
These are the ultimate slip-on alternative to flip flops, and they are more comfortable for walking longer distances (as compared to flip-flops). They are durable, extra-light, breathable, and feel very good to walk in. I wear mine comfortably without socks, and the sandlals have an anti-odor fabric which doesn't allow bacteria, or fungus to form/grow. I wore mine for a full week in Florida with hot temps and they were perfect for casual walking, and beach recreation. As for use; I walked up to a few miles at a time in them (up and down the beach), and noticed they fit snug in all the right places and around my ankles - they do not cause blisters at all. However, they fit such that your feet/toes can move around a-little inside them and which makes them breathable; and the fabric is also breathable so you feel air circulation as you walk, or sit. The soles are also flexible so they really move with your natural walking motion - they are really suprisingly comfortable to wear, and walk in. My feet are size 11, and these sandals fit as advertised - perfectly. They are a true 11. As for styling, the picture herein really doesn't do them that much justice.. They look cooler than you think; and most people don't wear them.. Mine are a worn grey finish and have some frays (which make them appear broken in). Which there is no need to break them in; they already are..
Overall, these are best served for those who want a great casual/lazy sandal who might walk further distances than desired in flip flops.. or for something different than flops. They would be great for casual boating, beach, walking, barbeque, etc.. If you're like me, and don't like wearing running shoes, or deck-style shoes during casual outings, or during vacations, if so, these are for you too. The only down-side is that they are expensive - $65. However, I feel they are worth it for the comfort, materials, and are well made. I like mine so much, I'm going to get another pair of slip-ons in a different color.. You should also note that there are cheaper versions of Sanuk sandals than these. If you like to wear flip flops try these out and you'll really appreciate and like them.
