I own several pairs of Ipanema sandals. They are so comfortable. They are all rubber, not plastic. I wear mine 7 days a week, to work, to the beach, my friends wedding. So many compliments. I k ow several people who have them and feel the same way. I walked 8hrs in them and my feet felt great. I completely recommend these sandals. People say they look cheap, but if you actually wear them, they don't and they aren't. You need these in your life! Any of the ipanema sandals are amazing!
