Blast from the past!
OMG, these bring back SUCH memories - my first pair of travel sandals EVER were the black Source originals for my maiden Britain End to End by bicycle camping trip back in 1997. I think I bought them from Mountain Designs in Canberra, Australia. They were $100 over TWENTY YEARS AGO - a LOT of money!, but I remember the store owner saying "the quality is top notch." I have no idea what happened to them, but bizarrely, I still have the zippered bag they came in! I remember them being utterly bulletproof and a snug, sure fit, no rubbing or annoying triangular rings (like Teva) hitting your ankles and they never took on a bad smell like a lot of the other brands. I also liked the simple sole, rather than the over-designed ones you see these days that attract dog poop :)
The only reason I think I switched to Chacos (until I discovered they would tighten around my toe no matter how much I modifed them) and Keens (until I discovered my toes would poke out of certain styles) was a) I needed more arch support - these are basically flat b) I was always nervous about my toes being vulnerable - I remember thinking this as I climbed Volcan Madera in Ometepe, Nicaragua c) I have very small feet - I think with the strapping pulled to the max, there was a bit of overhang and i had to get the velcro repositioned. One thing I do remember is that the velcro extends right across the toe strap, so that's why it stays snug d) I wanted a bit more grip on the bottom, though the lo-fi Source sole is surprisingly grippy and NEVER WEARS DOWN. I am almost thinking of getting a new pair to relive my nostalgia...
A very important thing is that the webbing dry quickly - the webbing back in the day wasn't so quick-dry - also downside with a lot of Keens.

In these landfilled times, consciously designed, well-executed products like Source should always prevail.

Hi Sonia, thank you so much for sharing your memories. Just calling the sole lo-fi is a bit hurtful. It's a 3-layered sole optimized for grip, comfort, support, cushioning and longevity and our handmade(!) sole is one of the reasons our sandals are going strong 30 years later! Safe travels!

GREAT WEAR-ANYWHERE SHOES!
NO FRILLS, RELIABLE MEN & WOMEN OUTDOOR ALL-TERRAIN SHOES

~ What ~
With triple-layered soles plus patented X-Strap anchoring points, these all-terrain sandals come in 8 colors and 13 sizes for men and 6 colors and 7 sizes for women. Lightweight with 3 adjustable Velcro straps that offer the option of being a slip-on shoe, they include A.R.T4 Grip Top Soles and A.R.T2 Grip Outsoles with permanent odor control. Each pair arrives in a reusable zippered bag with a matching strap design hangtag.

~ Why ~
These shoes are so cool. I walk our dog miles a day so have to have trustworthy, comfortable shoes that can put up with wear and tear, and these basic sandals are excellent at providing enough cushioning on the soles with plenty of adjustable straps. My husband loves that he can adjust each strap to accommodate his feet and they do not slide around. Being able to convert the shoe into a slip-on is an added benefit. Adding the zippered bag is a thoughtful feature for storing or traveling.

~ Why Not ~
Some may not like the simplicity of this shoe, but you could check out the thicker, padded, and heavier sole type that SOURCE offers. Others may not like the patterns offered and prefer solids or different colors.

~ Wish ~
It would help if cleaning and care instructions were included.

~ Want ~
If you are looking for a perfect pair of straight-forward, no frills, basic outdoor sandals that can be worn without your feet getting sore wherever you go, these are a great choice.

Thanks to SOURCE for these shoes that I am under no obligation to review.
