Was this review helpful?

I am writing this review not as a diss, but in hope that this will help Jambu improve on what is potentially a very nice sandal. here is the relevant info about me: I am a big fellow at 6 ft and 253 lbs. My feet are wide and I have fairly high arches. Fairfax should be considered a "minimalist" sandal, with very little drop from heel to toe and very little shoe between you and the ground, with the outsoles providing a bare minimum of protection from potential hazards and no torsion support of any kind. There is no stiff stability shank in the tread or under the insoles. The outsole treads are made of very pliable rubber, and so basically these sandals have the support of a well worn out pair of crocs, and even then your heel will be cupped better in the crocs. The outsoles are punctuated by ventilation "holes", shielded by a metal mesh, commonly found in water shoes. The insoles are also punctured. In theory this should offer some extra ventilation from below, but given that these sandals are quite open it is not clear whether the ventilation holes are really necessary, especially since the sandals are made of leather, and that the top of the insole is leather. Due to these considerations I would not want to wear these sandals when the ground is wet, which does limit their use. In my opinion the insoles are also a weakness in the design of the shoe. The EVA foam used is far too soft and compresses very easily, at which point it offers very little cushioning or support. There is no arch support to speak of, which is not a huge issue for me, but will be for others. There is no heel cupping either. Lining the top of the insole with leather makes it sticky when used barefoot, which is what most customers intend to do, I recon. I have ordered a pair of “Honey Soles”, which I hope will alleviate the issue, but which add $35 to the cost of the shoe. The elastic strips built into the upper offer a good give during the break-in period, but seem flimsy/low grade enough to get stretched and wavy fairly quickly. This is just a forecast, and I will actually have to see what happens. Also I cannot yet comment on how the outsoles will hold up to wear. The leather inside and outside, and a wide toe box are what attracted me to the shoe. The outer leather is decent, but not at a Birkenstock grade. The inner lining leather is very nice and soft; a big plus. The finish of the shoe is fair, commensurate with what one would expect from a basic Chinese production (as opposed to a higher end tighter control one). Overall I feel that the sandal has a lot of potential if the design is altered a bit to address the issues I have brought up. I am content to have these shoes in my line-up, because I was able to pick them up for about $40. I would not consider them as viable (in the present form) at their $99 price point.

The rubber outsole provides reliable traction,yes. But there are mesh holes in this outsole, through... Generally, They are great shoes:very soft, made well. But I am going to return them because of mesh holes in the outsole.
