The look is great, the feel is even better. It is kind of heavy, but how the support is built prevents it from being overbearing, actually it made my feet feel much better than slimmer-profiled sandals. The only concern is at first they are really tough, and it was awkward to walk for a bit, also remember to break them in slowly... This isn't the shoe to open from the box and expect to cruise the whole day without problem. The inner strap by the arch rubs pretty hard at first, as well as the space between the toes. I made this mistake and ended up having sores for about a week, preventing me from wearing them. I know its tacky, but I would recommend you wear those bandage wraps around your arch for the first few times, because when I did that, it then wore them in really quickly, sparing my feet in the process.
Overall, I would recommend these to anyone who cares to look good, while purchasing durable products that will work with a variety of colors and situations. I've worn them to the beach, to class, to the country club, to fraternity events, and felt comfortable in those situations.
