comfy but unsafe
on February 12, 2014
I wore these for 2 weeks in Europe. They fit was great, the arch was comfortable and my feet did not hurt at the end of a long day of walking; they worked well in mud and grit, and they were very water resistent. However, these mocs are DANGEROUS on wet, smooth rock/tile/cobble surfaces. They have no traction on such surfaces. The treads are not deep, so wet grass or leaves stick on the soles and turn the mocs into ice skates on wet surfaces. A few other comments related this slipping problem but I'd passed them over. You must be very careful. Choose another shoe if you know you will be in an area with stone surface sidewalks or streets.
Without doubt some ugly shoes: suede mocs that have grafted with a tentacled sea creature. They look bulky but are surprisingly light. They slip right on and suck your feet in. The insole is well padded- I have high arches and PF and I find that in shoes with good arch height, the support is either too soft or too hard, if that makes any sense. The arches in these are prominent, yet a bit too hard; after a few hours of walking around I can tell I'll need to take a break. The heel is well supported. I'm a 7.5 and find that they fit well with some room to wiggle- wearing thicker socks will make them more snug. 7 would probably fit closer but allow for less winter sock width. Constructed well, I expect that these should last several years as travel and weekend shoes.
