Product Review (submitted on 13 August 2020):
Happy sandals! Light, flexible and foot-shaped, with plenty of scope for adjustment so you can get them to fit your unique feet. The foamy material of the soles gives both great ground feel AND a nice bit of padding/spring, so they are comfortable for standing all day. I wear them for town, trekking and work, and the sole has borne up well.

There is a weak spot however - the thinner Y-shaped piece connecting the straps at the sides broke on my 2 previous pairs after a couple of years. Disappointing - but they're so comfy that I'm now on my 3rd pair.

I recommend considering going down a size. I started with my usual size, but realised that you don't actually need the sole to be so long as there is no top to contain the foot. Also, I tripped over the front of the sole a few times... so I moved down a size, which is a better fit. The only problem is the velcro on the heel strap is strangely positioned so that the top part doesn't meet with the bottom part - this was remedied with needle and thread, but it is a bit of a design fault!
