not as comfortable as you might think

Reviewed by M A from CA on Thursday, July 11, 2013
When I saw that these sandals were made by New Balance, I thought they'd be great for walking around all day. But they're not. The sole is slippery on smooth surfaces and carpet, and the second time I wore them an air bubble developed under the knuckles of my foot. Yes, my foot gave the sandal a blister. They're well-made with nice materials and very cute. The sizing is right. The footbed has raised sides that create a support all around your foot, but this might be a problem for you: I don't have wide feet, but I get a sore spot on the outside of each foot right where the back strap of the sandal is attached. It's just a bit too narrow right there. the strap is adjustable on each side, but the problem is with the rigidity of the footbed. Don't buy these to take on your vacation thinking you can walk for miles all day and not have sore feet. They're not as shock-resistant and supportive as you might think for something from New Balance.
