My husband and I bought these shoes to wear in Hawaii. They are everything we needed. We wore them in the sand, on hot pavement, on wet rocks and on lava. They do not offer any support but the thin layer of rubber. Even though the fit it snug, sand and little rocks still got inside, but it was nothing to what it would have been like without the added protection. I wore mine when swimming and snorkeling as well. That way I didn't worry about putting my foot down on something. Even short hikes over little dirt and rocks gave just enough protection. They were perfect! My husband's were too small so he went up two sizes and it fit well. He has a thick foot. It is a struggle to get them on, but it is worth it. They do loosen up in the water, so you want them snug.
