SOURCE Product Reviews (Page 26)
These are not a regular flip flop - these are way more a combination of hiking sandal and flipflop. The footbed is shaped and arched for support, the sole looks like it is made out of tyre treads (super strong) and the material of the footbed is soft and I mean *super* soft and comfy.
They are not as lightweight as many flip flops so be aware and I don't think the straps can be adjusted so if you have a high instep you need to be careful - I do have a high instep and I just about fit in, although I hope the straps will be give some over time.
Initial impression = great, comfy, strong flip-sandal!
Bottom line : a great, high end FLIPFLOP - not sandal.
WHY CAN'T I FIND THAT PERFECT SANDAL? I need a sandal that is versatile and adaptable for multipurpose use. DOES IT REALLY HAVE TO BE SO HARD?
Before heading out on a rafting trip with my friends, I came across the SOURCE Crosser sandals (thanks to a lucky google search!) and decided to give them a try. After years of sifting through, purchasing, ruining adventure sandals and never being satisfied, I have finally met my match! Comfortable when dry or wet, these sandals practically molded to my feet. Even when forced to walk through the water for a solid quarter of a mile when our raft got stuck on shallow rocky waters (what good rafting trips doesn't include that story?), the crosser's kept my feet protected; they did not slip off or lose traction. I survived the trip happy with my new purchase, the ultimate and final test was the drying effect: turns out I did not have to wait to get home to experiment. By the time I turned in my life vest and oars, my sandals where ready to be thrown in my knapsack alongside my dry towel! The best part is, after all the wear and tear, there is no stinky evidence of their expedition. (Plus it doesn't hurt that they look great too! Loving the lilac color!)
Not only is it really comfy to wear (you forget you are even wearing them) - it is very easy to tell they have been made to a very high quality. Often comfy sandals come with the negative that they look bad, however these also (as you can see) look stylish too.
Pros: Value vs Price = pretty good. Durable. The valve works well. Easy to fill. Insulation. Convenient size. Very easy to clean. Light
Cons: Hose could be a bit longer. Dirt guard requires effort to remove.
A basic model, fits all of my needs.
