Great when dry but stretch in water. Good grip.
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 8 June 2019
Really great product until it got wet. I wanted it for an in-water class. Once the shoes got wet, the fabric stretched a bit and they became too large. I am normally a European size 40 and I bought the size 40. They fitted fine until they got wet. They were nice and wide across the toes and fairly comfortable. If anyone has dropped arches, be aware that there is absolutely no support in these shoes and I actually found that they exacerbated the problem. That said, these are not designed to address this, so I have not taken any stars off for that.
In terms of grip, these shoes were very good both on the poolside and on the board in the water.
Quality-wise, the shoes seemed great. I have reordered a size smaller as I liked the shoe.
Without the stretching problem I would have given these 5 stars.
If I had wanted them for wearing without getting wet, they would have been fine.
Edit: I hot the shoes again in a smaller size. They too stretched when I got into the pool with them. So much so that I could really have done with another size smaller. I would still recommend these shoes for grip and comfort but would also recommend going at least a size or even 2 sizes smaller than your usual size if you plan to wear them in the water.
