I usually like Vionic brand because of the wonderful arch support. The problem was with this particular style was the Velcro. VERY poorly glued on and separated from several of the straps. Walking around Spain with these for 2 weeks and that was the end of them. They were new for the trip--had only worn a few times to break them in. I threw them out before getting on the plane to return home. We had to find a sewing kit to try to tack down the Velcro on the straps so they were temporarily useable. Too late to return the sandals but I will not buy any sandals from this company again with Velcro strap closure.
