I have been wearing these all over Italy and they have performed very well. The suede wipes off easily, the soles have a little squish to make them comfortable, and they have a bit more support than similar looking sandals. They go with brown and black, and can be worn in any situation. Very versatile. I wish the straps were adjustable, because one shoe rubbed slightly until they were broken in. They broke in fairly quickly though. Also, they are quite narrow. I have an average width foot, and I had to size up. The larger size is still a bit narrow, but comfortable enough! I was concerned because I ordered them at the last minute before my trip and didn't have time to prove them before we left. I am very happy with them--no blisters!
