I'd prefer a much lighter shade of brown for Summer. I associate dark brown more with Autumn. Cutting the tassels off would absolutely ruin the shoe. Why not find a nice pair of canvas espadrilles or other more appropriate summertime wear?

hmmm.... not my experience. I find they are exactly the same with one exception.. the 888 has a squared off toebox and the 82 is rounded... sole to sole.. they match in every dimension.
Size 9 and 9.5.. sadly nothing of interest to me at all this year...

I wear them, I pack them, I carry them on. I'm not going without just because I'm traveling. The one exception is when I head to Hawaii for vacation... then I wear a pair.. but only pack the necessary trees and bags... as I am mostly barefooted or in flip flops at the beach.
