Sandals as I expected, as I've had similar ones in the past. They are comfortable and good Velcro fastening make them feel secure, which is important for a more mature lady like me. Need to feel like I can run for a bus safely!!! Colour not too in your face and will go with most outfits. Reason f o r just 4stars is my feet hurt a bit after a few hours wear and not sure if this is because of my awkward feet, or sandals are new. Feel it's probably my feet. Hopi.g will be better after wearing awhile!!! Would recommend to a friend.
