I love everything about these shoes except the quality. I wear a 10.5 shoe and ordered these in size 10. They fit perfectly and are very comfortable until you get them wet. I wore these for a 4hr excursion on a recent trip to the Caribbean. I wore them for about 5 hours. At most, 2 of those hours were in and out of water, walking over boulders, swimming, nothing crazy.
After the shoes got wet, the insoles started to slip as other reviewers have mentioned. I also noticed the outer sole start to shred a bit on the edges. The inside seams also separated and whatever glue/material is in between the seams became a shredded mess of brown gluey paper-like stuff that was all over my feet and the inside of the shoes. The glue holding the insoles dissolved enough to let them start slipping and upon inspection, it looks like the only adhesive holding the insole down was a 2" strip of glue from a glue gun.
It's unfortunate I can't return these. Even at this price, I...
If you're looking for a pair of water shoes that you can wear more than once, don't buy these shoes. I read the reviews, and decided that since i would only need them for a short vacation to the river, it would be worth spending the $ for them. Sure enough, just as the reviews i read about bad insoles, bad quality, and bad overrall quality all said-these are not a good product. Save your money and buy a decent pair of water shoes that won't fall apart. I regret my decision because the shoes didn't make it through a full day of walking in/around the river.
I was happy with the price and quick delivery. However, the insoles of the shoes became unglued within the first 5 minutes of being in the water (no exaggeration) and so they were extremely uncomfortable for the rest of the day. I bought these for a rafting trip, and by the end of the trip I took them off and threw them away. It was more comfortable to walk on the gravel path back to our car than it was to keep the shoes on. All in all, very disappointing. I'm thankful that I only needed them for 4 hours instead of an entire day/weekend.
The majority of the negative reviews I saw on Amazon related to this specific issue, so that's where your company needs to focus attention. That, or further discount the shoes since they are basically only good for one time.
I contacted the company to let them know of the insole problem, this is the only response I received:
hi i am so sorry about this i will look into this i havent heard of any other problem thank you...
