I own about four pairs of sanuk sidewalk surfers, and a pair of their sandals and they are all amazing! I usually have some trouble with shoes giving me blisters but I have never gotten one with my sanuks! It is close to walking barefoot! The rubber sole is AWESOME and molds to your foot after a while, but theres also little holes in the sides of the shoe so theyre breathable for your foot! Really the best shoe I've ever had. And I love this pattern because it goes with EVERYTHING! Buy this shoe, I dare you to find something negative about it! ALSO, I throw mine right in the washing machine and dry them in the sun. They dry super fast!
