Having only worn in the house, my experience is limited. These seem excellent. I offered them to my friend as a gift, knowing she has a tough time finding sandals, and she loved them, but the outer strap on the left ankle was hurting her when she went without socks. I expect to keep them, though I will try them for an hour or so to be sure before wearing them outdoors. I am more into minimalist footwear or barefooting, so these are slightly chunky and heavy for my taste, but by most standards are sleek and light enough. I always wanted a second pair of Chacos as my first hurt my arches because they were a bit high for me. These seem perfect. I'm guessing my arches are about average.
I got the Martian strap and love them. They are super cute, and subtle enough that they could go with anything in the right color range. They are subtly whimsical. I love that. I expect these to be nigh indestructible. I plan to lend them to my son in a decade or so, if he wants to wear them while his feet briefly pass through my size. I am a women's 9, and I think I got the youth 6.
