Perfect For Everyday Wear

I needed something in between full sneakers and the strappy walking sandals I have. Full sneakers or hiking shoes feel heavy and bulky to me, I can't stand my feet feeling heavy. And my open-toed walking sandals are great for errands, but leave my toes too exposed for wearing around my woodsy yard and property. I wanted something cool for summer but that still protected my feet; these fit the bill. I didn't have any problem with sizing as other reviews mentioned; I take (and ordered) a 7.5 and they are a perfect fit, wiggle room for my toes and the width is great. I'd say they are a flawless fit actually. The definitely do not have exceptional arch support, they're contoured for comfort but these are a very flat style so I wasn't expecting them to be especially supportive. What I really love about them is the combination of sturdy soles and flexibility. I'm always climbing around in the yard or walking my dog in the woods, and frequently find myself climbing on and over big rocks, fallen trees, hopping across streams, etc. These offer all kinds of flexibility, gripping surfaces and giving me a very natural feeling. The low profile offer a nice clean look too, I hate the look of big clunky shoes. I got the green color. I usually opt for natural and subtle earth tones, so this was a very bold choice for me but I quite like them! They're different and fun. I put them on out of the box with no adjusting whatsoever and love them. I forget I'm even wearing them and find myself wearing them well into my evening at home, when I would have normally changed into slippers. No complaints at all, these were worth every penny.
