Mar-20 update Lowering to 3 stars. As much as I love these, this is the 2nd pair where the leather strap pieces came apart in a few months of wear total. Its like the glue dissolves. I tried a 2nd time in case the 1st time was a fluke. Sadly, no. —————- This is a very well made and simple sandal. The black leather looks nice and is sturdy. This is only a little more than the rubber flipflops, looks way nicer, and will last quite a while longer.
It IS quality leather, so expect some rubbing on the top of your foot while it breaks in. It took about a week of daily wear for the leather to get really comfortable. I just put a couple of bandaids in my feet where it was rubbing for a few days. The footbed is super comfortable and durable. I’ve been tromping all over Hawai’i beaches, streets, dirt paths and lava rock walls for the past 2 weeks and it’s great.
