Great shoe for pool/water sports (such as aerobics), walking on the beach or in rainy weather, gardening, etc. -- but not for swimming. Is also a good shoe for general walking. Shoe gives support and is comfortable and very lightweight. This is my 4th pair -- not because the shoes don't wear well (because they do), but because I've worn them a lot. This pair will be perfect for my upcoming cruise to the Caribbean. I'd rate the shoe a 5, but the 3rd pair I bought was smaller and tighter on my foot, even though it was the same size as the other pairs I've purchased. The insert seemed a little large for the shoe, and even though I trimmed it a bit, the shoes were a little tight. With enough wear, they may stretch slightly and be fine (I didn't return them). I'd suggest buying 1/2 size larger than the usual shoe size. Those with pink trim seem a little tighter than the others.With all of this said, this is the best shoe I've found for water aerobics. They can withstand the chlorine very well and don't shrink in the sun/heat as some other brands do.
