I love the look and structure of this sandal. Unfortunately, the toe strap curls in and cuts into my foot.I even tried steam ironing it so that it didn't bite into my foot, but it didn't work. This didn't happen immediately. It was a month or so after I wore them. I continue to wear them, but put a bandaid on my foot so I can wear it.
I do not recommend this product.

I love the shoe although it runs a little large. They are comfortable and have enough cushion to make walking enjoyable. Have problems with my knees and these shoes are a welcome pair.

I have a similar pair and decided that I should grab these so I'd have another pair since I wear them so much. They fit and look great, got a compliment the first time I wore them - on the plane to an island in Florida where I wore only these sandals or nothing at all.
They rinse of sand well and allow for good traction. I plan to wear these and my older ones to their bones, so I just might have them for a long time to come!
I would recommend this product.

I usually wear a 9.5, so based on the reviews that this shoe runs small, I ordered a 10. Boy was I wrong! I had to exchange for a 9, which is still a touch big.
Sizing aside, it's a great shoe. It's light, flexible but supportive, and looks great. I just had a baby and am trying to be more active, starting with walks with my daughter in her stroller. My flip flops were hurting my feet so I wanted some sandals that would function better for light activity. They've been great! My feet no longer hurt after our walks. I'm glad they give me more stability and I am even considering getting a second pair in a darker color.
I would recommend this product.

The upper strap that run over the top of your foot pinches your skin. I tried socks on too, and it still pinches. So I'm not sure if my foot is just too narrow for this shoe, but I have 8.5 size feet, sandals are size8, that are normal, narrow feet. No unusual requirements needed when I buy shoes other that I can't have wide. This shoe would have been very comfortable if the strap had more padding across the whole thing. Straps were also very thin.
I do not recommend this product.

After a recent injury I wanted a new pair of sandals to accommodate a swollen foot as it recovers. These are totally appropriate, comfortable, encourage confidence, in a no longer steady senior. Showed to my neighbor, she also like them --They're stylish too.

These shoes are great. No more slipping on slimy boat ramps. I got tired of falling on my bum and getting algae all over me. Not that I have the Sunlight II shoes, I don't have to worry any longer.

I waited over 2 months to write this review because I wanted to give the sandals a fair chance but find I must rate them as poor. The sandals do not fit correctly - the length is good but the ankle strap is too short as is the strap over the instep. You can barely close the velcro strap. The sandal also has a sole that gives no traction on wet or damp places and I wore them in Florida for the past month. Suffice it to say, I will never purchase another pair of Columbia sandals.
I do not recommend this product.

Very comfortable & supportive (as are all of the Columbia sandals I have purchased). I live in Columbia shoes, because it is the only brand my feet are happy in. Comfort & support are my priorities. However, colors for most Columbia sandals are horrible. Wish they came in just nice "basic" colors (brown, black, cream, white), as well as some "fun," bright colors. "Mud" & "fossil" are neither attractive names nor colors.
I would recommend this product.

I'm pregnant and a teacher! These are my go to shoes! They are comfortable, light weight, and sturdy! I've owned them for several years and now I'm thinking of buying another pair because they are awesome! What I like most is that I can wear them to work all day and then chase around my two kids at home without worrying about my shoes! They are great!

This is a lightweight, stable, comfortable sandal for me in my regular size. They don't stay soaked after being wet and the mud color doesn't show dirt. These were my choice to pack for a very long trip to many countries with one small backpack. I wore light wool socks with them when the weather got chilly. Excellent product.
I would recommend this product.

I didn't like the shape of the toe box area. Constructed for people with large long big toe and very short toes.
I have a more rounded foot. My regular size was too long and there was a thickness in the sole where my toes bend that was uncomfortable. I returned them.
I do not recommend this product.

The sandal is lightweight and fairly comfortable; however, it is noisy when you walk. It clomps at the toe. You can hear me coming. My previous Columbia sandals were quiet and more comfortable. The strap over the ankle is also short. Could have been an inch or more longer. It barely reaches the velcro.
I do not recommend this product.
