I'm retired, live in Florida and you can count the number of times a month that I wear shoes on the fingers of one hand with a couple of fingers left over (other than biking that is). Sandals and flip flops are pretty much it for me from March through October. Reason being they are more comfortable.
When I get back from a ride and peel the soaked socks from my steaming feet, it seems there must be a better way. Been researching biking sandals, seems the people who like them do so quite a bit.
Before I order, thought I would ask for some input from people who have actually worn the things. One negative that I discovered is that no one in my area (Pensacola, Fl) stocks them so I won't have the opportunity to fit them. Every time I've ordered shoes online (3 times), they didn't fit well.
The Shimano seems to be the only open toe design, the others are more like regular shoes. I tend to the Shimano for that reason.
PS: No relevance to my owl picture, just thought you might like it.
