Great minimalist sandals

Super minimalist sandals, very light with a thin and flexible sole (you can feel the roughness of the ground). I've only used them recently, but they seem sturdy. If I may make a suggestion: All that's missing is a slightly wider forefoot for them to be true minimalists and for the toes to be able to fully extend in width. I also confirm the design problem mentioned in the other comments concerning the tightening strap for the ankle: I don't have particularly thin ankles, but I still need to tighten the strap a lot for it to hold, this which means that the Velcro can only be attached over a short length. Hoping that a new version fixes this problem in the future.

The sole irritates my skin

Great sandals for that price, compact, minimalist and with a good fit. But I can only use them for a short period of time, not even a 3 or 4 km walk. The material of the insole irritates the skin on the soles of my feet, it burns. Unbearable, I will leave them to go to the beach (by car of course), or to be at home. A shame.

I had them for 4 years from April to September every year and now I have bought them again. Great shoes.

Light and comfortable

Very practical, light sandals, they go everywhere with me. Also comfortable, you can hike with them in the middle of the Amazon without any problem. However, be careful with the support for thin ankles, the Velcro does not allow you to tighten very much.

The best sandals for everyday wear, in any (warm) weather - they won't get ruined after rain, they're light, compact, long-lasting.

Too big

I am not talking here about the size, which can be chosen and should suit everyone. No, I'm talking about ankle support. The engineer was smart enough not to make a continuous velcro strip, therefore it is impossible for thin ankles to use this product.

Size and hold

It's a bit too small for me (I measured according to the size chart), and the strap in the heel area is attached to the elastic sole material, so the strap bounces with every step. This creates a kind of flip-flop feeling. Not my thing, otherwise a good price. Especially considering that they're basically barefoot sandals.

Light, high quality, durable and almost like walking barefoot in the slim car. I recommend it for those who like to walk barefoot.

Good but it's a little "loose"

I use them daily, the only drawback I notice is that the front part of the sole is loose and sometimes it gets stuck, when going up a step or on a very steep slope, the sole is very thin and "bends" it would need a reinforcement or some velcro to hold that part, the ankle support is correct, we will see how long they last

Fits my wide feet. Will use for Umrah and Hajj.

Very light, they…

Very light, they link together and slip perfectly into the backpack. On the other hand, no sole cushioning. It's really only for bivouac and not for walking.

icon-circle-checkmark verified purchase

The visual design is good. Ergonomically, there need to be a strap for support across the bridge of the foot. I am going to return.
