Buckle may be Achilles heel

I am really pleased with these sandals. I am a longtime TEVA fan and find the size 8 fits exactly as expected. I hesitated to purchase these because of the ankle straps and can understand how they might be a problem for some wearers. This turned out to not be an issue for me. The sandals are VERY good looking and TEVA comfortable. No break in required. Good for walking. I wear the ankle strap loose, allowing my heel to lift from the foot bed while walking (like wearing a closed back clog) Black color is dressy and looks great with slacks or skirts. Very, very pleased

con: The buckles are very flimsy and not of the same quality as this beautiful leather sandal. I am concerned that over time this will become an issue. Also, the buckle was very hard to negotiate with my aging fingers, although this has become easier with repeated wear. I had to open the holes (most of which were not fully punched) .
