Great for for summer
I like the shoes. It seems the comment that they run 1/2 size smaller is wrong, at least in my case. I feel that they are 1/2 larger than indicated. I normally wear US8, with Arroyos I think 71/2 would be perfect. Laces slip very little if at all. I figure if it becomes a problem, I'll use regular laces and tie them like I would regular shoes. OK, that will add 5 seconds to putting them on, so what? The grate thing is that it is possible to string normal laces through the loops where the original lace is strung. Another negative is sandal's weight. But I guess to be rugged terrain-worthy they must be hefty. Compared to hiking shoes they are still lighter, plus ventilation makes them much more comfortable than even low-top sneakers.
