Excellent for their purpose

These were bought for the pebbly beaches of northern Kephalonia, and did an an excellent job protecting my feet.
In terms of style, despite the bewildering array of colours and patterns, I couldn’t actually find a design I liked - I went with black in the end, which was fine.
Don’t expect these to double up as sandles, they’re simply not sturdy enough for extended walking and the soles will slide out from under you if you e.g. scuff you feet. This does mean these are yet another thing you’ll need to pack in your beach bag, but they’re light and can be easily squashed in. The important thing is that the rubber soles are thick enough to protect your feet from even the nastiest of rocks. There were quite a few sea urchins on our holiday and while I didn’t test this theory, I’d venture to say these probably would have held up to a direct hit from one of them.
The material is not quick-drying, so unless you lay these out in the sun after use, the chances are they’ll still be wet when you want to use them again. As they’ll be donned for going back into the water anyway, perhaps that isn’t a big issue for many, but I suggest you air them out to let them dry and extend their life.
I paid £15 for my pair. A fair price I would say - I wouldn’t want to pay any more for them, and if you could get them for £10, they’d be a steal. They do the job very well. Recommended.
