Runs narrow in the heels

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Mike N from Maryland on Friday, May 2, 2014
As others have noted, these are somewhat funny sized. I normally wear a 11.5 -12, but an 11 in these still gives my feet plenty of room in terms of length. So the advice to order down for half sizes from STP is good. BUT - the heel cups are way too narrow in the 11's - they rubbed like crazy on the sides of my heels the first few days and this is not something you can just get used to. Maybe try to get some of the wide's if you a half size kinda guy like me.

I fixed the heel problem with a sharp knife. I was able to shave enough off the heel cups to make them comfortable for my (apparently) wide heels, and then I smoothed out my hack job with a hot blade and you can barely tell. The heel cup isn't structural so this shouldn't affect the performance of the sandal. Still its kind of ridiculous that I had to go to these lengths to make them comfortable.

As for their performance when wet, I tried them out kayaking the other day and I think the toe loop does make a big difference in terms of keeping your feet from sliding around.
