I was very happy to find this style available. I had looked at numerous local stores for this style without success. When I saw a fellow kayaker wearing a pair, I asked about them and was told that "online" was the only place to find them. I am replacing a pair of old TEVAs (same upper style - older model bottoms) that I had worn each summer for at least 10 years. The old pair was my favorite sandal ever. I even applied duct tape to the bottoms of my old pair because I preferred them to my newer sandals of a different style. I think I like the new bottoms even better so I look forward to at least 10 years of good use with my new ones. I considered them to be a good value.
Wears this shoe: Normal casual wear plus kayaking trips shore use not as water shoes
