Top critical review
Disappointed fit (around the house)
Reviewed in the United States on November 29, 2020
I purchased these along with the L-RUN Athletic Hiking Water Shoes. I was in need of something to hike easy to moderate trails in Hawaii in search of waterfalls. I was really hopeful for the SOBASO due to their more rugged tread and the larger holes in the mesh. Unfortunately they didn’t fit as well walking around the house. As seen in the picture they required the bungee to be cinched down pretty tight, which caused overlapping of the mesh. The fit around the opening at the top of my foot was also loose. The biggest downside I found though was the heel. At the very back of the shoe the heel dips for some reason. I could definitely see this being an issue on uneven terrain or while walking through creeks and the heel slipping off.
The other shoe fit much better. More like a neoprene sock. I’m going to keep them and return these. I’ll write a more detailed review of those shoes after I’m able to get out and walk with them a bit.
