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.

wish I could find them in a size 16 / 52 ...
They're beautiful handsome machines that translate energy into joy.
