    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    For extended walking, sport sandal are good. Teva and Chaco are probably the biggest names. I've owned sandals from both companies going back to around 1990, but I highly recommend Unshoes. I have a pair that I've been meaning to post a review of. Like the original huaraches, you can use them for running. They have six different types of sole shapes you can choose from or you can send a tracing of your foot and have a custom shape made. Mine have a regular sole shape with custom straps: the thin straps of the Feather but made in the configuration of the regular Wokova.

    I love mine for summer travel or anything sporty in hot weather.

    They're really minimalist, so be a little careful if you're used to the usual, thick soles. Here's a pic of to the right of a Chaco flip flop and old ZX2s for comparison of how seriously thin they are:

    Welcome to the forum, Jaysek. Yes, you absolutely need to wear clean socks everyday. Powder your feet, fresh socks, and wear shoes. You should be good to go. Best of luck.

    I don't mind them, but then I like ugly shoes. They're not as bulbous looking as most Keens.

    I didn't realize they were Keens till the salesman told me. Actually they look fairly sleek there is no bulk to them at all.......unfortunately none in my size.

    Any good ideas for a cheap-ish sandal with no toe separater but utilizes some style of sole stitching or nailing? Jutta Neumanns are perfect (esp. when given Birkenstock soles) but I don't wanna swallow $330+.

    Summer is coming.. get your sandal game up.

    I'm liking the new RJB line of sandals from Japan, and the new SS16 collection from Suicoke is looking really good.

    The Unshoes Wakova Feathers I posted last year (just transfered the post to this thread) have gotten a lot of wear. So I may get their Keota model this year. Love how they're made in the US, customizable, and about $50.

    I want to share some pictures of sandals, long time ago I made this model for men and women, a leather strap to fit all widths.
    In Andalucia it´s very hot, (40-44 degrees), Are very necessary for summer.
