great for the closeout price

I wear a 10E regular shoe, which is sometimes hard to find a fit for in the generic S,M,L type of sizing. This M sandal is about as snug as I would want to get, but it does fit OK. There is less clearance in all directions than I have had with other M sandals, but for a 'sport' sandal that seems alright to me -- it gives me a feeling of precision knowing where my feet are, and there is enough overhang to avoid banging my flesh if i hit the edge of the sandal on something. The straps allow enough adjustment to position the foot on the footbed where I want it to be. The straps seem to be reasonably sturdy, and after a week of use, they have conformed reasonably well to my foot, without rough edges. There is a strange little protruding bar across the interior footbed toe that ends up under the proximal crease in my toe joints, presumably on purpose. I'm still getting used to it. When the sandals have gotten mud or dirt on the sole they have been easy to clean on the inside and the tread.
I'd like a bit more spring/padding in the sole, but they are still quite comfortable on tarmac and grass, which is where I have used them.
I bought these to replace some sandals that lasted for years, but the soles delaminated and I got tired of cementing them back on. It remains to be seen if these will last as long as the others. If I knew they would last, I like them well enough to buy another pair.
