Rated 5 out of 5 by great value This sandal is perfect for active outdoor wear. They are comfortable and durable. This is my second pair and highly recommend them. August 13, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by Disappointed Bought these because they looked like a pair I purchased from Columbia about 4-5 years ago and have about worn out. But the straps across the arch of my foot and toes are not as wide and they are stiff. When Velcro is snug they cut into my feet. Really uncomfortable to walk in. Probably won't wear them. Would return but threw away box and receipt. August 8, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by So uncomfortable Rub against your feet, very painful to wear. And Columbia does not offer a discounted shipping return label so very expensive to return, cost $15 plus to return these. A bad choice, do not buy these. And don't return anything. July 2, 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by Dangerous sandals The sole at the toe is too thin and floppy. Okay if all you are going to do is walk on a very level and even surface. Not so good otherwise. June 3, 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by Sunlight not so good I was hopeful these sandals would fit like a glove but I started getting blisters on the big toe of both feet right of way. I had to return them and am hoping the Kyra II won't be the same. May 30, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Comfortable Shoes did run slightly small. I wear between an 8.5 & 9 ladies size shoe and the 9 was almost too small. The comfort is good and the light weight aspect is nice for a sandal. I would recommend this product. May 20, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by My go-to shoes Years ago I bought a pair of Columbia sandals before going to Europe for several weeks. I have to say they were the best buy I made! We walked a ton and I never got any blisters and those shoes went everywhere with me for the next five years. I just had to throw them out because after five years of constant wear they were done for and I ordered these to replace them. These are great! I am sized at a 7.5 but ordered an 8 which fit perfectly. I would suggest half sizes order up. Every comfortable and well made. I look feared to another five years with these and using them in East Asia! April 27, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Women's sunlight vent sandal I really like theses types of sandals. I ordered on line since Columbia store in Myrtle Beach had only 2 sandals on display. I did get a blister on my left foot due to the curling material rubbing there. The right foot was fine as that same piece of material was not curled. April 17, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by SIZE Don't listen to the reviews saying these shoes run small. I ordered the next size up from what I normally wear and they are way too big! February 8, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Comfortable I have really bad trouble with my feet. I am 76 years old and it doesnt matter how much I pay for shoes they always give me problems. I bought a used pair of eBay as I wasnt sure how they would be...they were excellent and I wore them continuously all last year. I am going on holiday back to Australia in April 2016 and my new sandals will be going with me. A great product...I got my new ones on special and wanted to buy another pair but no more available. I was lucky in getting the ones I got. Thank you so much. Shirley Hanson December 26, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Too small, rubbed blisters in my feet first day I ordered a size 6, which is my typical size, and these shoes feel small. The edges of the sandal straps are rough and rubbed blisters near top of pinkie toe and heel the first 2 hours I wore them. I gave them 3 days of wear and they didn't get better. Loosening the straps didn't help the rubbing situation. I'll be donating them to Goodwill. November 28, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great for travel I purchased these to bring with me to Costa Rica and they were everything I needed. They did rub on my toes once but other than that, very comfortable. I wear an 8 1/2 usually and I purchased the 9s and they fit perfectly. October 25, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by I love Columbia sandals I bought a pair similar to these over 15 years ago because they were the only sandal that didn't literally rip up my feet. They finally broke this year, so I needed a replacement pair. I decided to go with Columbia again because I loved my old ones so much. The sole on these ones are not as thick, but the cushion on the bottom is definitely the same. I'm fairly confident that they will not hurt my feet. October 16, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent product These sandals are lightweight, but sturdy. They can be dressy, yet feel good on your feet. July 20, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by love these sandals I have 2 pairs and am now ordering another. They are so comfy and practical. The curled up front sole takes getting used to, you need to roll with your steps. I have taken them to Mexico with me to walk on the beach and into town and then I can hose the sand off them. July 8, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fine sandals This is my second pair. The name has changed with some other slight modifications, and of course, the price is up. However, the same comfortable fit as before. Can be used as beach and evening wear. May 27, 2015
