Easy purchase and delivered as promised. Took on a remote shoreline trail where gravel, rocks, and even boulders make flip-flops inadvisable. These sandals held up solidly without giving up comfort. I’m happy with his purchase, and definitely recommend. They won’t always replace my flip-flops, but for certain terrains, they cannot be beat.
I love these sandals and will wear them all summer for hiking, playing in rivers with my kids and just for everyday.
I live in Missoula, MT, and after I purchased my order online, I reached out to see if I could pick my sandals up directly to save the shipping packaging and fuel cost. Kari was incredibly accommodating and super responsive in setting up this pick-up. The sandals themselves are exactly what I was looking for, protecting my feet while keeping me connected to the terrain. I am looking forward to taking them backpacking this Summer!
Feels great out of the box, fit is easy to dial in. Been testing in different weather and surfaces and so far awesome.
I just finished thru-hiking the 800 mile Arizona Trail in these (surprisingly I saw no other hikers using sandals, hmmm...) I also have over a hundred miles backpacking in Utah, a hundred miles running in them and probably another hundred on walks and day hikes. These shoes are bomber. The soles are definitely wearing down around the balls of my feet and some in the heels, but I think they might still have a thousand miles in them. All the anchor points of the strapping show no signs of loosening, which is impressive because I've dragged them through miles of knee deep snow, mud, quicksand and river crossings. 200 miles in my achilles started to wear through the heel strap a bit; where the hook loops through it creates a bit of a raised spot that wears a bit quicker. I put some tape over it to protect the strap, but it may not have been needed as I may wear through the soles before the straps. The top of my foot has also minimally rubbed through some of the fabric, but I've never had to tape them and they are holding up great. I loved the hooks on the straps with all the sandy hiking I do, but maybe I would try the velcro next time to see if I got a longer life out of the straps, then again it may not be needed. The grip on the ground of these sandals is also great, and my foot does not slide around on the top at all when dry and minimally when wet. No issues hiking through any terrain. My feet were always happy in these. I initially got a blister on my achilles but once calloused I had no rub or hot spots. These sandals also did not encourage the collecting of pebbles under the heels as other brands often do (probably due to flat footbed and hard surface). The craftsmanship, durability, versatility and functionality of these sandals are stupendous! I can't recommend them highly enough for all your outdoor adventures!
