I bought these sandals in black for a trip that involved lots of walking. They held up extremely well through rain and consecutive days of wear, both with and without socks. The one time they got a bit mud-spattered, they cleaned up easily with a damp cloth. The simple, streamlined style makes them an appropriate choice for almost every situation, from a backyard cookout to a church event. The multiple adjustment options means they're so comfortable that you don't want to take them off! This is a great sandal that I highly recommend.
