My old pair of sandles finaly gave up the ghost last summer so with the weather starting to get warmer I was looking for another pair. I came across this pair at Walmart. They are made by a company called Earth Spirit. My mom actually has a pair from this same company but they are not the same style I bought. The sandle has a earth/nature feel to them. All the styles were a brown or tan color with wood beads or natural looking designs on them. They are very nice looking and can be worn with casual dress or just jeans and a T-Shirt. They feel like a felt or velvet type feel. They are very soft and feel great on my bare feet. They are somwhat comfortable (the material used is part of the comfort to them). I say somewhat comfortable because the front strap that goes over your toes kind of rubs the little toe slightly and it can get annoying after awhile but other then that they feel great. Even the back strap that goes over the anckle isn't all that annoying. I have not gotten a blister from these yet so that is a very good sign. The heel is a little higher off the ground then I usually like on a sandle but it's nothing that I can't deal with. They also had them in my size. I wear a size 10 in womens and it is sometimes hard for me to find nice looking, in style shoes that will fit my feet. These shoes also last for a good while. I just bought mine a few months ago but my moms pair are about 3-4 years old and hers are still in great condition.
