Sandals are great! A little stiff on first wear, but broke in quickly and has not gotten soft. They have just the right flexibility and firmness. They also recover well after getting wet and the colors so far have not dulled. Easy to put on and off. I have even wore them without securing the back ankle strap and the sandals are fine for casual walking and stills maintains its form and function later. The sandals have not stretched out or shrank. Thus, get the perfect size. They do run about a half size bigger. So thanks to the prior reviewer who advised to get a half size smaller. Overall, a very versatile, comfortable, breathable, and toe protected footwear for all types of outdoor activities.
