I am a women's size 9 D width with a high instep. In Vibram 5-fingers, I have to wear men's, and the only ones that fit are the ones with laces.
These sandals fit perfectly. Awareness of the toe loop comes and goes - it isn't a Big Thing. I haven't done anything terribly strenuous yet, but these are soooooooooooooo comfy for walking, and so much cooler than my 5 fingers. Straps adjust to accommodate even my ridiculously high instep.
I've only had them for a couple of weeks, so I can't comment on longevity. They are less "barefoot" than some minimalist shoes, but I am pretty well living in them this summer. I have not had the "ice skating" issue that some have when the sandal gets wet; maybe it's because my foot fills the shoe? They aren't river sandals, but I have worn them in driving rain. Once you take them off they dry pretty quickly.
My only head-scratcher is why these are called "blue." They are a light gray in any light - though I haven't checked UV.

These sandals are fantastic! When I first put them on, the middle strap rubbed a little, so I was worried, but a few wearings and I don't feel anything but softness. I actually bought another pair. I've been running in minimalist shoes, so I'm used to the feel of the ground that these provide. Love them and they are a nice color and cute besides.

I LOVE these sandals. They are lightweight, durable, and stay on your feet well enought to hike or run in. Only problem that I have found with these sandals is that if they don't dry quickly after getting wet (they're good river shoes) they will get pretty smelly, however, the smell can be removed by washing and drying them.

When I first saw these sandals, I was worried that the toe strap would be annoying. On the contrary, it turned out I only noticed it for the first 20 minutes or so, then (like with flip flops) I no longer felt it. These are lightweight and extremely comfortable. They are not the normal, heavy duty Tevas, which is what I wanted. I have a narrow/medium width foot and usually wear a size 9.5. The 9 fit me perfectly.

comfortable right out of the box. There isn't much of an arch support, but these are incredibly comfortable - thin sole, well-placed straps, and suede-like footbed. I wear them around the house or out running errands. Bought them with the hope that I could wear them on a summer trip that will have a ton of walking - they will be the shoes I put on at night when I'm done with the day (not the shoes I'll wear all day) - not enough support for that.
