So after ten years, My pair finally broke. The strap pulled loose from the footbed. I wore them every single day for years, and then wore them every day as a lifeguard until they broke. On the pro, these things are the most comfortable things under your feet that you can have when you're walking on a pool deck or around a waterpark for eight hours. The only complaint I had was that after their first year at the pool (they were six years old at this point) the suede really didn't like the chlorine and got hard as a rock, which eventually caused mild chafing and irritation the strap also hangs onto water, which can get cold if your feet only get damp. Eventually it softened again, but it was never able to be worn all-day again after that, without chafing. The footbed is insanely comfortable and supportive, and the traction is awesome. Ten years of wear and they still barely looked worn.

Overall, the strap fits well and the sandals don't move around, the footbed is perfect and the only thing that slightly lets this otherwise perfect lifeguard shoe down is the strap hanging onto water and getting cold, and causing chafing.

I replaced these with a pair of the zilch sandals, and despite loving those too, this old dinosaur of a sandal really will be remembered fondly.

I gave the broken old ones to my puppy, and she still hasn't managed to inflict any real harm to these things.

I had a pair of Teva flops that lasted for 8 years. I don't know the name of the style, but the number on the tag is 6876. I love those!! Time came to get a new pair and NOTHING I can find compares to my old pair. I tried these Katavi's and they are ok. Still wish I could find something truly comparable to my old pair.

                I have been wearing these since they came out. Love them - Beach, Casual, I have hiked easy trails in them but was spur of the moment and I don't recommend these to everyone. My others lasted about 6 years.. these are spring/summer wear - but daily and almost all day. We walk all over Uptown and Downtown and I am wearing these.

                  This is my 2nd pair and I still have the first. They have held up VERY well with my original pair just showing some signs of the straps a little stained over the past 5-years or so. Seasonal worn to be sure as I live in Colorado. I bought the 2nd pair to use when going out with my wife and a different color. I did not hesitate and went straight to the same model because of how comfortable it is and it was priced competitively as well. This model seems to have better arch support then most other brands I have tried. Size wise I am usually an 11 but the 10's worked well and do not have a bunch of extra and the toe or the heel.
