You are going to love the compliments you get whenever you can slide your feet into sandals like these. The open design of the sandals makes it possible for you to have the kind of cooling effect that you need on those hot days. There are two straps that cross the foot at the toes as well as at the bridge of the foot. Each strap is accented with an interlocking gold metal chain across the length of the strap. The back of the heel is strapped in as well with the help of Velcro for an adjustable fit. The riser in the soles will help you to enjoy additional height. The deep tread rubber soles will remind you of combat boots and even has a mid-heel in the back. This will help you to prevent slipping while you are active. It will also encourage you to be more active even where there is no pavement.
