    I like the light weight of these sandals and how you can feel what you are walking on through the sole. On slick rocks or in the water your feet can wrap around obstacles a bit- not as much as barefoot but better than a rigid bottom sandal- so you have a larger contact surface. Spent 8 days in Costa Rica with these walking traills in the rainforest, wading in a river (rafting trip), and playing in the surf.

    First time to buy these type of sandals usually wear Soccer style because I don't like flip flops. These seem comfortable with a minimalist sole but has support. The Toe loop will take some getting use too but like them so far. Will have to wear more to really see how well they're gonna do.

    Certainly one of the most comfortable sandals I've worn. This is a case where less is more. Enough sole cushion to guard against sharp pebbles. very comfortable to wear.

    I borrowed these from a friend to try one day because we have the same foot size. However, immediately upon wearing them, I would have liked if they had been less. It is good to see companies hopping on the minimalist band wagon, but these are just too over engineered for my taste. If you want a true minimalist/huarache type sandals, check out Unshoes or Zero Shoes, both are much more simple if you're a true minimalist at heart.

    I use the Zilch primarily for minimalist running and walking but I also wear them for just running errands around town.

    I've been searching for years for a sandal without a strap between the toes and finally I stumbled across the Zilch. Come spring and summer, my fee won't sweat. The sole is just thick enough to protect my feet from the worst of city streets and it's also VERY flexible. I anticipate the sole getting even more flexible over the next couple of months.

    The description of the sole says "super-thin" but from the perspective of a minimalist runner, it is not super-thin. It's a little thicker than I like but, again, I expect after more miles the sole will get better.

    The only problem is the strap across the arch; it creates a hot spot. I was too far away from the house by the time I noticed it and when I got back, the hot spot had turned into raw meat. I figure the strap will get softer with use and the skin will toughen up after a while. I hope. This is the reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5.

    Now that I've discovered the best running sandal, it's been discontinued. I bought two pair, hoping I will be able to go several years without having to find another running sandal.

    Note: I've only had these for a few days and have only put about 25 miles on them but they SEEM to be holding up well.

    Had to return the product. Teva used to be known for having an infinite number of adjustments. Several of their recent sandals are limited on adjustments. This one doesn't have an adjustable toe strap and the toe strap was too small.

    I throw these in my backpack because they weigh very little. Once the hiking boots come off I use these around the campsite and in the tent.
