I live in sandals 24/7, I live in southern California and wear sandals even when it rains.for the past 15 years i've been a huge fan of rainbow sandals but my 30 year old feet were getting sore and I was having really terrible foot pain, to the point where it was getting difficult to walk. My neighbor turned me on to these sandals and I will never look back! I officially converted to Olukai! I love these they are so comfortable and give me the much needed arch support and still look "cool". I recommend these to everyone i know!!!
