These are very trendy canvas shoes that go great with jeans, khakis, or shorts. Heres the problem - after walking in them (~3mi/day) for less than a month, my heel rubbed through the very thin liner and started to rub & blister against the canvas material. After less than thirty days, I couldnt wear them without getting a very painful blister on each heel. Ive decided to return them and will try to get the KEEN Oslo shoe...am hoping for a better turnout from a shoe designed for walking in. The bottom line for me is that the liner of a shoe should never rub straight through after less than a month. That's simply poor construction.

On a brighter note, kudos to backcountry.com for the excellent customer service throughout the buying (and returning) process! I will certainly buy from them again.

Unfortunately, I had to return these. I'm a size 12 and ordered that size. They were a bit tight - the top of my big toenail would touch the rubber toe-protector and rub a bit, my pinky toe rubbed the nylon webbing on the side and blistered, and the heel was pretty snug. I only wore them for a few days, so I can only recommend ordering a size up. Other than the obvious drawbacks, the sole was very comfortable and the sandals had a very good grip for hiking or doing pretty much anything in- and out of the water. I decided to exchange these for the KEEN Venice H2 in a size 13 (no 12.5, I guess). I'm hoping that the reduced amount of nylon webbing will lower the likelihood that my small toe will rub. I'm still confident in KEEN's products...for now.
