Required some repair work after first use... Repaired shoe works well though
on October 11, 2015
The shoes run a little large, but good in width. I bought them for a trip to Mexico since I had read that the beach sand in front of the all-inclusive resort was pretty course. My issue with the shoes and the reason for the 2 stars is that after just the first time in the water, the adhesive that secures the sole insert to the base of the shoe sole failed causing the insert to bunch up under my feet's arches. To make the repair, I had to take a taxi to a Walmart in a nearby town to get a flexible, waterproof adhesive. Upon making the repair, I noticed just how little of adhesive was used during the manufacturer's assembly which surely was the reason for the failure. Thankfully, the adhesive that I found worked great and I have been using them for multiple days now with no issue. If the repair couldn't have been made, I'd have given this a 1-star rating for sure, but as I can still use the shoe (albeit after being repaired), I'm giving it 2-stars. Perhaps my pair were an anomaly. Good luck with yours. Just have some glue available just in case.
