I tragically had to replace my last pair of balsas and am happy to write that these have met my expectations. The first thing you notice is how incredibly lightweight they are. They are constructed the same as the previous version- narrow in the toe box and run true to size. I purchased the Stealth/ Black/ White/ Hot Punch color combination and the color is a bit off from what is pictured above. The hot punch is like a deep hot pink. It looks fantastic when I take these shoes off.
