Superb. Drain well. Light for travel and gym.
on May 24, 2011
The design on the footbed of these Locker Slides (perfect name!) is superb. There are drain holes under the toes and at the heels. The rest of the foot bed has nice drain channels.
If you shower in these, you don't have to point the tip of the toes down and shake them loose to drain (and maybe have it fall off, a minor annoyance with other locker and shower slides). Just wiggle your foot around and you will rinse the soap off the bottom of your foot.
There are no drain channels in the strap, contrary to the product information (implies them at least) but they are not needed. What is important is that there is no fabric backing on the strap to retain water and get groady over time, as is the case with comparable slides from other companies.
Super light, the way all shower slides should be. Who needs extra dead weight in their gym bag or travel bag? Remember you will be carrying these around more than wearing them.
They also interlock together (slide the foot bed of one, upside down, into the other) quite well, saving room in your bag.
Size is true, not small, unlike reported on the UA website by some reviewers (I think they may have been wearing them with socks? these are sized assuming barefoot, I believe). If you are slightly larger than a size, though, order up one size. I am a 9.5 but the 10's fit perfectly with socks, a tad loose barefoot. I don't mind the looseness in barefoot; since I may wear them with socks to cafe near the gym, I like the way they fit.
