These sandals have wonderful support for walking miles in almost any terrain. Traction is good and works wet or dry. Some people report they are true to size, but I like them better small. My first pair were 1 size smaller than my usual size and I loved them. When I bought the second pair they felt too short in the smaller size so I went up to the size 8, but that was a mistake. I kept tripping over the too long toe. Now I a back in the 7's and know they will be wonderful. Please keep making these!
I would recommend this product.

I purchased a parallel product from Columbia company. I wore them all summer, my feet have never been happier. I had been searching for a similar pair and am delighted to have found them at a great price.

I'm a big fan of Columbia products. I've found that they live up to their expectations and if, for almost any reason' they don't Columbia will do what is necessary to keep their customer's satisfaction.
I would recommend this product.

I bought these because I purchased some Columbia sandals several years ago and wanted to replace them. The Techsun were the closest I could find and I was not disappointed. They are cool, comfortable and will be worn all throughout the summer.
I would recommend this product.

I first ordered my regular size but had to return them. The size larger was perfect. The shoe is very light but gives great support. It is very similar to an older Columbia sandal that I loved that lasted forever even wearing it in water.
I would recommend this product.

I usually need to wear orthodics, but not with these sandals. My feet do NOT hurt and I can wear sandals, get them wet, etc.. Very happy with these - they are my 2nd pair for my daughter, and myself.

I bought this for days that I wanted something a bit more durable than a cute flimsy sandal. It is great for outside in the evenings, watering plants, etc. I also bought it to take on hikes for those times we might walk across a creek or even after a long hike to get the hiking boots off and wear something cool and comfy. I might even try them out on the trail. They have Velcro closures so they are adjustable. I'm not sure if they will work on the trail but I'll definitely try them out and try to update this review after I do.
I would recommend this product.

I wear a 9.5, ordered a 10, and it's still smaller that I like. I would say order a full size up (too bad they don't come in half sizes).
I bought these to wear walking along the surf line. At first I was pretty pleased with them, they seemed pretty comfy in spite of being on the small side; but after wearing them a few hours, they rubbed some blisters. Hopefully I will develop calouses once the current blisters heal (I don't want to wear socks in the surf!)

Liked the look and color and wore them a few times before a trip to Costa Rica. On day 2 of the trip I developed large blisters on the outside of both big toes. They seemed comfortable initially and I liked that they could handle water. I would recommend REALLY breaking them in before taking them on a trip.
I do not recommend this product.

My last pair of Techsuns finally gave out after 5 years of abuse and a replacement pair was impossible to find in a local store. I ended up buying not one but TWO pair from the Columbia website. I wear these sandals all the time, all year long. They are easily the most comfortable sport shoes I own and they take a beating. The size is true, at least for my size 7 ladies feet. Some reviewers said they run big/small, but I didn't find that to be the case. Definitely recommend them!
I would recommend this product.

Finally a sandal that approximates my 20 year oldies but goodies that I've been unable to duplicate until now.... The Techsuns are very comfy, very well made, light but up to demanding use. Love them!

These sandals are very comfortable. I have wide feet and the size fits perfectly! I know it will last a long time because I finally threw out my first pair of Columbia sandals, which I bought several years ago. That pair was showing its wear and tear. I will continue to use these new sandals for everything - like hiking, kayaking, zip lining, snorkeling cruises, walking, and every day use.

I've purchased Sandals from Columbia before and have been very pleased with the quality but these are way too small. The strap is too short to really close and it comes loose very often......
I'll look for some others when the new ones come out.
I do not recommend this product.

This model is poorly designed. I have rather narrow feet but I couldn't fasten these sandals at all, the velcro was just too short. I was very disappointed because I love this brand and I have been wearing their sandals for years.
