    Sandals anyone

    I’m looking for input on Sandals.
    I am considering Shimano, Lake, and a Nash bar sandal.
    I will be using them on a Trek Navigator, which is my main transportation
    I only drive when I have to haul large or heavy items.
    I will be purchasing Campus Pedals as I make a lot of short trips around the hood, and have never used clips or straps or anything that held me feet, not sure I won’t freak-out at first.
    So I’m hoping for some information to help me make the right choice, my regular sandals I have been riding in are about dead now, and I don’t like braking in new footwear, I want to do it right the first time.

    Thank in advance John
    If it ain’t broke fix it for fun

    I've got a pair of the new shimano sandals.... The ones with 3 straps. I like them better after I cut the center strap off. Why did they put that in anyway? If I wanted a toeless shoe I'd cut the toes out of my shoes. Anyway, they are comfy.....

    Don't know about the others you mentioned...
    Carpe who?

    I have the older two strap Shimanos. That's all I wear, winter or summer.
