Best shoe I have ever worn, and I am 58 - I already have one pair of these. I have worn them through trips to France and Italy, walk about 2 miles everyday and bicycle in them, have used them from late spring through early autumn. Good with or without sox. Feet stay dry, the sole provides fantastic support and a perfect stride. They look great with slacks, shorts or jeans.

Odor - This shoe is great, except after couple of months of wear the sole of the shoe has a strong unpleasant odor. Never had a problem like that before.

I have owned two pairs of these. The leather upper was in perfect condition on the first - it was the footbed that wore out, and so I should have realized that they could be re-soled. Nonetheless, don't regret the second purchase at all. These are absolutely the most comfortable sandal I have ever owned. The sandal holds closely at the ankle, sole, and heel, but provides plenty of room and breathability around the toes and foot. The footbed is incredibly comfortable - form and supportive. They can be worn straight out of the box; I took my first pair on a month-long trip through sub-Saharan Africa right after purchase, wore them most days, and had no problems. I've taken them on trips as my only "shoe." They are fine on almost any surface. They are about as dressy as a sandal can be, meaning they can double with semi-dress clothes in many settings. At the same time, they are perfectly at home in a very casual setting. The buckle means that they hold to your feet well, but also requires a bit more work to put on and take off. This is more of a matter of the design of the sandal than a criticism, but if you’re looking for something to easily slip on or off, these aren't the best choice for you. They're also not designed to be worn in the water, meaning that a pair of flip-flops or Tevas will work better in water or on the beach.

I'd also recommend: Birkenstock; Teva

Obviously a bit expensive, but I ended up buying two pair because I like them so much. The leather is very soft and has a quality feel to it, and the sole is very comfortable and shock absorbing. Sizing is true to size. Looks dressy too, or can be casual.

Absolutely fantastic! I have wanted a pair of these for years, but ringed at the cost. I took the plunge and was greatly rewarded! These are some of the best sandals I have ever worn. They are beautiful and super comfortable, especially without socks. The width is perfect; roomier than most fisherman sandals. You can wear these for hours and forget you're wearing anything! They would be perfect for those places where sandals are not allowed. Put on a pair of matching socks, and you'd never know! I plan on getting a pair in brown as well. If you wear a 44 (11US) in Birkenstock, a 12US in Chaco, or an 11US in Teva, you will need a 45 (12US) in these.

I'd also recommend: Birkenstock, Keen, Chaco

Great quality and design. Arch support is superior, but is tight around the foot. Fits more like a glove than a sandal.
