    4.0 out of 5 stars *Almost* Perfect Active Wear and an *UPDATE*
    By Wilde's Cabbage on 25 April 2019
    We bought these on the strength of my research on 'active wear' foot-supportive shoes. My other half needed a pair of beach worthy comfy shoes that protect against high temperatures that would be worthy of diving straight into the ocean. He tends to look for extremely functional, WELL MADE designer shoes. He hates wastage and finds that paying the extra cost upfront, usually means you having a quality, durable product that lasts a lot longer than most high street products. Thus justifying the cost. This principle has worked well for him most of the times. Though I have to add a big BUT on this pair:

    These were great in every way, great toe separation which really promotes "barefoot" walking, perfect foot alignment - supporting the natural gait.

    The recipient was truly against wearing these when i presented them to him, as he felt they looked "odd", having never experienced an individually toed shoe before. I really had to convince him to try them out.

    Honestly, he was so attached to them by the end of our beach usage requirements, that one could mistake him for a die-hard Vibram ambassador.

    The Downside
    Having researched these, i expected them to be quick moisture wicking, especially with the daily water usage. Sadly though, they are very slow drying and as a result smelt damp after just short of a couple of weeks.
    Washing them hasn't totally eradicated the smell.
    I should mention as a point of reference, that this has never happened to any other shoes owned by him before.

    Update:

    These lasted well for two holidays abroad with daily use of pool and beach for a couple of weeks in total. As seen in the pictures, they are now showing signs of needing replacing - a few small holes at stress points.

    Are they worth it? Probably yes, as they are very comfortable, like a second skin, especially on hot desert sand climate. They don't rub and can be worn all day due to their breathable nature.

    Could they be cheaper? Yes. Two weeks of very active beach and pool use is quite a short lifespan for the price.
