We took these out of the package and wore them to the Miami Boat Show, logging about 12,000 steps a day on my Garmin Quatix sports watch. We’ve washed them twice, and they faded a little but look better with jeans every time. The squashable heel adds sandal convenience on the boat and around the house, and the fabric seems to breath, mitigating the effects of sweat.
They’re made of a light but durable canvaslike material, and the upper is joined to the sole with adhesive. Simple in design, a muslin-covered foam insole is comfortable all day. They’re available in five colors: denim blue, gray camo, khaki, brown camo (that looks more bluegreen) and black.
DRAINAGE: It took 60 seconds for them to drain, but they were slow to dry.
