Whenever it is time to replace my sandals, I always buy the same model. This is my 4th pair and have no complaints. The clasp gives me an extra layer of confidence on slippery or wet surfaces knowing the sandals will not come off. It is lightweight, comfortable and dries fast. I prefer these sandals during hikes over shoes because in case of a stream on the way I can get my feet wet and walk across instead of tiptoeing on the wet rocks knowing that my sandals will dry fast. Highly recommended!
