I should note these do what they say pretty well. They will give you purchase on rocks and feel minimalistic, so overall pretty successful water shoes. They are tight, but that seems wise for the design, so that is not the comfort issue. I also have long, spread out toes and love vibram 5 fingers, so the toe thing is far from an issue for me. The problem with the shoe is that it is a tight, form fitting water shoe, but the inside feels like it is just unfinished and unlined. The stitching and seams for what you see on the outer next to the laces will rub on your foot. If you dont have to walk much in them or you generally have tough feet it may not be a problem, but for me it will take some serious getting used to, probably including rubbing a few holes in my feet. I plan to use them for stand-up paddleboarding around the lakes in my area to help me scrabble over rocky shores and explore hard to reach areas. While they seem fine for the former, I hesitate to hike around in them at this point.
