After years of buying cheap sandals at discount retailers I was gifted a pair of these and couldn't be happier. They have lasted 5 plus years through international travel and frequent abuse. I just purchased this second pair as a backup for fear of not being able to locate this style should the old pair ever fail. This particular brand fits my foot like a glove, or should I say sock, or more like molded for my exact foot, but hey, you probably don't have my exact foot so good luck out there. Anyway, you definitely get your moneys worth with this sandal.
