I have half-dozen Finn Sandals--most are this model but one is the rocker bottom that I like too. I am 83 years old with some foot problems, like hammer toes and a bunion. These sandals, of which I have 4 pair, allow me to adjust the fit to meet my individual needs. Also, Finn shoes are orthopedically constructed to provide the best foot support.I live in South Florida and this makes sandals year-round a good choice. I love hand-knit socks and I wear these during cooler weather with my sandals. These Velcro straps allow me to adjust my sandals to the proper width regardless of the thickness of the sock.Spend the money. I just gave away 6 pair of nearly brand new shoes because they were not nearly as comfortable as my Finn sandals. These sandals have sufficiently flat broad soles to assist my balance. I feel more secure walking in these Finn sandals.What more can I say except "I love 'em."
