I bought a these shoes for both my husband and me. They are true to size, comfortable and stylish. We used them for our trip to Kauai and Maui. We did a lot of hiking in muddy conditions they worked great. We slipped a little in the mud but not as much as if we were in our regular tennis shoes. We had to step right into mud pools so they fit the bill. We used them just about everyday. Kayaking, hiking, zip lining. Just pull them off, squirt them off with a hose and let them dry and they are ready for the next day. We had two others in our party buy these shoes too. Everyone was very satisfied with the shoe's performance.
