Lightweight and comfortable, this classic 2-strap sandal has ports built into the midsole to drain water quickly and promote airflow making them the ideal choice for active days in warm weather. Adjustable straps lock feet securely into place and the high-traction rubber outsole provides great grip over a variety of surfaces.

I bought these for a trip to Africa, and just received them. They feel and fit correctly and comfortably. I wear a size 9 shoe in everything I buy and these were no exception.
They look great and fit my outdoor style pretty good. I love the drains on the sides and bottom for any type of water I may encounter...and I wanted these with the ankle strap as I have inverted my ankle on multiple occasions before and like to have a little extra support sometimes depending on the terrain i'm in. So that was a nice option to have.
I also bought the regular flip-flop style version of this same sandal for more casual wear around the hut. They are equally nice!
These are very lightweight and I expect them to last a while overseas, can't wait to put them to the test!
I would recommend this product.

I have several Techsun sandals, but never before the Vent variant. They are always excellent, and this one is no exception. They are extremely durable, which is how I came to have several pairs. They are extremely comfortable. I like them because they are waterproof, light, fit well, and never wear out! And to me they look good.
For me they fit true to size or even slightly large: I take 7 1/2 to 8 in a shoe, but the size 7 always fits perfectly in this sandal.
I would recommend this product.

Exactly as described. Happy with purchase. All great shoes take a while to break in (water helps).
I would recommend this product.

I agree with the previous view that these sandals were uncomfortable at first...they definitely need to be broken in. This took just a day or two. Water drains quickly from these sandals. I purposely purchased these for doing some hiking in water, up river and waterfalls. The grip in water was really good. Didn't slip on wet rocks.
They were perfect for what I needed them for.
I would recommend this product.

These sandals are quite uncomfortable on bare feet, okay with shorty socks, but who wears socks with sandals? The leather sandals are far more comfortable
I do not recommend this product.
