These sandals are very cute and very comfortable right out of the box. While I love the look, the feel and the many compliments I’ve received, there is one concern. There is zero traction on wet surfaces. I discovered this while washing my tile floor at home during the “break in period”. I was slipping all over unlike when I wear my Clark’s I specifically bought these because I needed a good sandal for my plantar fasciitis for an upcoming trip to Italy, so I was happy to discover the flaw before we left
I wore these all over Italy for hours of walking and the comfort was superior to the very good athletic shoes that I brought. Unfortunately there was a pop up thunderstorm in Sorrento and I was not surprised that I slipped on the slick cobblestones even though I was aware of the issue. Bottom line, I recommend them, but if there is the slightest chance of rain, wear something else.
I notice they have updated the sandal for 2020 and it looks like the sole now provides traction!
