Posted:It's hard getting an honest opinion, or even do research about a product threw all the marketing tactics. I don't like buying something that isn't crafted to the highest quality. The trial and error process, for me, ends in disappointed most of the time. I thought I would post a product that I could highly recommend, to help someone out there save time and money.

Feel free to suggest some of your experiences.

These people really do make high quality footwear. I have a pair that have withstood the test of hard times. The soles don't wear easily and the stitching does not come undone. They are versatile and if you get them dirty you can throw them in the wash and dry cycle without worry. They will take on anything, for years.

Both of these I stand behind and purchased with a leap of faith (plus recommendations) from one of my fave local outdoor/extreme activity stores. Now that I go outside more and do more strenuous activity than in my youth I'm most pleased with comfort and durability when paying an arm and a leg for things. As long as they keep good condition I don't feel ripped off.

Kind of a pain in the ass for me to put on cause all but my big toes have been broken, but once I manage to get them on they're great.

I wear them all the time in and out of water.

Posted:Refuge, I just saw this today....

On a sad note someone died that Saturday due to heat exhaustion. So Sad! It was a guy named Matt Sloan, aka carpeDM01 whom I knew of because he recommended Sanuks shoes on the Inforoo board. We, Stephy and I, each got a pair and they are very comfy shoes. Over 2 years, alot of people have ordered a pair because of this guy recommendations. So I decided to e-mail the Sanuks company and ask if they would rename a shoe in his memory, since he has sold a many sidewalk surfers for Sanuks. A few hours later I got a reply.

Long story short, Sanuks board is meeting early next week to discuss what to name the shoe.

So if anybody wants a good shoe/flip flop, from a company that still has a heart, check out Sanuks, and let the know Matt or CarpeDM sent you.

Posted:That is a sad story Poje. I hope that the good folks in Santa Cruz do keep your friend's memory alive. I will be sure to post something about Matt Sloan aka CarpeDM to the Sanuk FB page and write them a letter reinforcing the idea. I have a Sanuk story of my own but I will wait to tell it another time.

Posted:even better than Keen sandles are

chacos

I own about 5 of these shoes:
five ten
thesy are the most grippiest shoes you will EVER see.

the trouble with Keen and the vibram 5 fingers is that they stink up a shocker.

And a new brand I have started buying is

loki

pricy but what they sell is amazing, unique and VERY well made.


sticks and stones my break my bones, but ski patrol will save me.

Posted:Sanuks are fantastic shoes, especially considering they still provide decent support despite having such a thin sole. Excellent lightweight kicks that slip on and off easily, dries quickly when wet and supple enough to be stuffed into a backpack. Great summer shoes. I've been meaning to buy another two pairs and be set for a while.
