After a year and a half of hard wear, I feel these faithful little flip flops have earned a review. They have hiked me over jagged lava beaches, run me through thick marshy meadows (loose horses, it's a long story), and shlepped me from market to yoga to the ranch and back countless times, and never once have they complained, given up, or made me uncomfortable along the way. These little guys are my 'go to' shoes
for daily wear and active vacations, and I've paired them with everything from Lululemon athletic wear to casual JCrew sundresses. Gingers have great arch support and the slim straps manage to be both chafe free and somewhat feminine at the same time. Though I've worn the bottom tread almost
completely off now, you'd never know by looking at them. After many besmudgings and consequent hosings off, the straps are as neat and clean as the day I bought them, and the footbed has nothing but a light imprint of my foot settled into it. No cracks, no snags, no punctures. If I were to have one complaint, it's that the souls of the Gingers not quite as thick and protective as the sandals. But I bought these as a more feminine alternative to those, and they have exceeded my expectations in that function. I have other, fancier Reefs for lunches and errands, but these are the pair I keep
by the back door, and the ones I will buy again when my Gingers finally slip quietly off to a well earned sandal heaven.
