I had the same ones several years back and lasted a few years and fell in love with them. I switched to a North Face sandal after that and they were good but turned the bottom of my feet brown from the dye that was in them. I went straight back to these and fell in love again. At first I thought they were a little small, but after a week of breaking them in, they fit perfectly! I love having a sandal like this that can be somewhat casual and still wear with jeans if I need to.
