I purchased these shoes from a store after trying them on and loving the feel of them. I work in a waterpark, so I'm constantly getting my feet wet and it was important to have durable, comfortable shoes that wouldn't slip on the wet surfaces. They have lasted for six months with every day use and are wonderful! The best part is that even though they are worn every day and get wet, I never have an issue with odors. I would recommend them to any of my friends/colleagues for comfort, durability, and the fact that they do great when you add water. I'm thrilled to have found them on Overstock and that the price is better than in the stores!
