I like the style and the price of these sandals, that's why I got three pairs of the same brand. I wear them interchangeably for the past four-month. Little more than a month ago I started to feel tiny rocks grind against my foot, and noticed the bottom layer of the sandal was wearing off. For the past month, I often have things poking through the sandal into my feet. Today I'm going to have to throw this pair out. Mind you I don't run in these sandals, and I don't walk much (most of the time I drive and take public transportation to places). I don't know how often people get new shoes, but these wore out way too fast.
