Great lightweight sandals

Reviewed by Britt from Midpines, CA on Tuesday, July 17, 2012
These sandals are lightweight and super comfortable-- just what I was looking for! I've tried Chacos many times, but have found that the footbed was always way too heavy and the arch too high for my foot. These Tevas are the perfect alternative. The straps are very easy to adjust as well. I typically wear between an 8.5 and a 9 and based on other reviews, I sized down and bought an 8, which fit perfectly.

I've read that other users have had an issue with the top strap & buckle coming loose. A quick note on that: it happened to me initially, but then I realized why it was happening. The buckle itself has a little locking mechanism on it that engages when you tighten the strap and then pull it in a downward direction. If you just pull the strap to the right or left to tighten it w/out pulling it down after, the lock (bar in the center of the buckle) will not engage. I've started using this technique and they stay tight every time I adjust the straps!
