    I am really impressed with these sandals, they look and feel almost identical to the ones I wore in the 90s! I say almost because the footbed is a little stiffer than I remember, they feel great, just a little stiffer than I remember. These are perfect for around town, running errands, everyday use. I do not recommend them for running or hiking any amount of distance in though. Totally not what they are made for. I want to buy a pair of the Terra Fi Lites for hiking and running in. But these originals are stylish, surprisingly light and even more surprisingly look good with socks!

    • 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.

      Q:

      How does this sandal size please ? I'm between a 9,5 in us size for most of my shoes.

      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.
