The shoe was a good fit in the beginning. However, after a few uses I noticed that it started cutting slightly around the straps when I would use it for extended periods of time.
Hi Jan, Thanks for taking the time to write. The specially made enviro-fiber straps used is unique in that it wears like leather over time but has 100% waterproof qualities. For some, it can feel stiff to begin with, much like a leather shoe can sometimes be, but softens and becomes supple over time. We hope this helps you. Please do let us know how they fare, as any and all feedback is important to us. Tread lightly.
