Fantastic All Around

Reviewed by Jacqueline from Michigan on Saturday, June 20, 2015
It was determined that for an upcoming trip to Europe I would need a good shoe for walking miles upon miles each day. As I did not want to sacrifice fashion, I chose to go with a sandal style that would look good with the clothes I packed (the color (Eiffel Tower) is subtle- a nuetral that can be paired with anything). From the moment I tried on this sandal I knew I had made the right decision-- it felt like I was walking on a cloud! I enjoy a shoe with good support, and these shoes do it for me, which is surprising due to the thinness of the shoe (it's not too thin, but I simply wouldn't expect the level of support with these). The adjustable straps are very comfortable, and can be tailored to fit any foot.
I was bouncing between getting either this shoe or the "original" and am much more satisfied with having settled on the OUD. The quality is more appeasing, and it shows. The only disappointing factor is the OUD is not waterproof. I've considered purchasing a leather waterproof treatment kit as a solution, but we'll see. Lastly, these sandals also look great when worn with a crew sock (crazy, I know!). I went with a Bridgedale hiking sock in order to provide some functionality when out and about, and it doubles the comfort level of the sandal (even though they're incredibly comfortable when worn without a sock).
Only time will tell if they can handle my European excursion, and I'll update my review accordingly.
Overall this is an amazing shoe- a summer must have.
