I defy anybody to show me a better sandal for outdoorsy people. No exaggeration, it is probably the best footwear I've ever owned. My previous pair of Ulysses has lasted for hundreds of days of hiking, international travel, and just plain wearing around town - and it's still going strong. Just bought a new pair for no other reason than I wanted to try a new color! Please understand this is a very minimalist sandal. It has no padding. It has no arch "support". If you want or need such things, do not buy this sandal. But if you want something that is bombproof, indestructible and feels like you're almost going barefoot - then this is a dream come true.

Awesome for those of us that like being barefoot (or as close as you can get and still get into restaurants) or for those scorching days where bare feet just aren't fun on the pavement. They also make a model that has partially closed front which is wonderful for driving, especially when you're out of practice with a standard and keep banging your toes on the pedals in flip flops or bare feet (is there any other fun way to drive?). These weigh nothing so you forget you even have anything on.

These may possibly be the best shoes that I have ever owned. Now, I have been wearing minimalist shoes and spending time barefoot for several years - I do think one probably needs good strong feet to get the best of these. I have been wearing my pair almost every day for the last six months and they are very durable, and very practical - whether just walking around, hiking, traveling, you name it.

I am massively impressed with these sandals. I got them before a month long trek through Europe, walking anywhere from 6-8 hours a day. They seem like a lightweight design, and I was prepared for them to fall apart at some point. 5 months later of regular wearing and they are still my favorite sandals, while staying together and showing minimal signs of wear. I highly recommend these if you are looking for a fashionable, sturdy and all around great barefoot sandal.

I've run as far as five miles in these sandals, and they are as advertised. As close to being actually barefoot as it's possible to come with any protection for your soles. They encourage you in the same way to land on the ball of your foot, and your knees will love them. But be warned: this is minimalist footwear and as such may seem flimsy; if your ideal of feeling good includes any padding at all, you should recalibrate or look elsewhere. "No arch protection" (see below) is a good thing here.
