UPDATE on review
This is an update to my earlier review. After wearing the sandals day & night on a 4-day weekend adventure, here are my comments:
1. the heel comfort is still top-notch, for anyone who suffers from plantar-fascitis...
2. good support, in water and on land.
3. the only negative: after about 3 days, i noticed the rubber cap on the toe area was aggravating my left big toe. I guess my toenail was bumping up against the capping, making it tender and sore. I had only packed this one pair of shoes for this trip. Even now, 3 days later, my poor toe is suffering. And, it was only on my left foot... not sure why, has anyone else experienced this issue?
I'm still giving it 4 stars, based on heel comfort, but I will definitely take a second pair of shoes on next trip!
