I am surprised by how much I love these sandals
. I have been trying to make Chacos
happen for me for years, but I just can't seem to. They are quality, well made shoes, and a great company, but they rub my feet raw, and I have tried several different styles. The past few summers I have worn Birks for knocking around, but I really wanted a little more versatile sandal for this summer. One I could wear to the beach, the pool, on the boat, running
errands, in the rain, etc. The Zirra have met my needs plus they are extremely comfortable. They are cute, and I can walk for hours in them. However, if you have wide feet these may not work for you. My foot is almost too wide for them. I don't think they run especially long, though, as some have mentioned. The little extra toe room at the top is really meant to protect your big toe from rocks or uneven pavement. I am really happy with this purchase and think the shoes are definitely worth the price.
