Fell apart in less than a week.
on 18 August 2014
These fit well but by the end of week one of my holiday they had fallen apart completely. The insoles kept rumpling up from day one, then by day 5 the rubber sole had come away from the material at the front of one shoe, and all the beach stones kept going into the bit between the sole and material so i was walking on lumpy sand and pebbles. the same happened to the second shoe the next day, and upon inspection I realised that the rubber soles had totally worn away, demonstrating what poor quality the rubber was. For the first 4 days I barely wore them as I was mostly by the pool, but admittedly I did them wear them quite a lot on day 5 and 6 as I was doing some dingy sailing lessons on the beach. They are definitely not robust enough for sailing - though I am not sure they would have stood up anyway. By contrast, my husband had some gul shoes and sailed every day and they didn't look remotely worn out!
