  • Q:

    Is this product able to be used in the activities category? I will be using this sandal in all types of ways and I would like to know how well this sandal can hold up to a challenge. I will be running around in a grassy field playing ultimate Frisbee and stuff like that as well as hiking and white water rafting in the mountains of Georgia. How would these hold up?

    Q:

    I have a narrow foot and would probably benefit from ordering the women's version if there's no other noticeable difference. What would the equivalent to a men's size 9 be?
    Asked on 6/11/2013 by Mud Doping Scandal from Houston, TX

    1 answer

    • CUSTOMER CARE

      A:

      Other than the sizing and color options, there is no difference! If you wear a men's 9, then women's 11 is recommended.

    Asked on 6/10/2013 by Etienne from France

    1 answer

    • CUSTOMER CARE

      A:

      If you are in between sizes we recommend ordering 1/2 size up in this style.

    Q:

    I am wondering to things: first, I am purchasing a men's sandal because they are usually wider. My foot is an 81/2 women's, so what size do I purchase in a men's?
    How wide are the sandals?
    Asked on 6/8/2013 by suz from Wilmington, DE

    1 answer

    • CUSTOMER CARE

      A:

      You should order 2 sizes down in a men's style. Since this style is only available in whole sizes, a size 7 is recommended for you. Our men's styles are made in a "D" width.
