I bought these from a third party seller in August 2014, wanting a pair of functional, supportive, yet attractive walking sandals for my size UK 9 feet for my then upcoming trip to Japan. These sandals saw me through 17 days in Japan just fine, often walking 8-10 miles a day in them in 30 degree heat. They kept me cool, they looked as good walking the streets as they did in temple gardens. They did rub to begin with, but a simple fabric plaster to the heel set me up for another 8 miles on foot. Fast forward to July 2017 and these sandals have been back to Japan once more, and also around New Zealand. They have probably seen over 100 miles of walking on and off track so far and are not showing any wear. They went paddleboarding with me and fell into the harbour water when I lost my balance - within 30 minutes my body heat had dried the leather out and they show no water marks, or salt marks, for their trouble. To top it off, they're highly adjustable and this makes them perfect for hot climates or travelling, when feet are liable to swelling up. I love these sandals. I really do. I will be sad if Teva discontinue them. It's not often you can find attractive, versatile sandals that do what they say, last well, and fit a size 9 foot, but these are them, and worth every penny. I'm sorely tempted to buy the black ones to cover all eventualities. A unicorn of walking sandals!
