I found these sandals while browsing at Sam's Club last summer. They are a light blue color and have two adjustible straps with silver-colored metal buckles. They have the neutral/tan-colored footbed that Birkenstock shoes are famous for, and a textured bottom to prevent slipping.

I love how the footbed conforms to your foot over time, which makes this a very comfortable shoe. The toe bar grip along with the two straps keeps these shoes firmly on my feet. They're great for summertime because your feet can breathe but also be supported and protected. The footbed comes up around your entire foot so you don't have to worry about your feet hanging off the edge of the shoe when you step down, and I know that has saved me from scrapes and scratches numerous times.

I think I got a good deal on these shoes as well. Sam's Club has a limited selection of colors but the prices are definitely right. I have a few pairs of sandals that I wear in the summer, but these have become my favorite for casual occasions or just hanging around the house.

The only thing I don't like is the way the footbed turns a darker color with age. I know that part of that is from the way that it conforms to your feet, but it looks like I have dirty feet when I look at my shoes after I've taken them off. It doesn't show when you're wearing them, and I'm more than willing to put up wtih that to get this kind of comfort: I've spent all day at the mall and not had sore feet, which is priceless.
