It took me a couple weeks to break in these sandals but it was well worth it! They are so comfortable and I prefer these over any other sandal that I own. I wore these for a week while scuba diving and they were so convenient to have on the dive boat and don't slide off when wet like flip-flops. Since I usually wear 8s, I ordered an 8 and it fits perfectly. I have even gotten awesome tan lines from them!
