These sandals look great on, and for appearance they would get a 5 rating. Unfortunately, these also have the dubious honor of being the first Hotter shoe that is quite uncomfortable. All of my other Hotter shoes are the absolutely MOST comfortable shoes I have ever worn. These shoes cause pain across the ball of my foot, right across the broadest part of the foot. They feel maybe the slightest bit tight, but the real problem is they just cut into my foot where bunions are if you have them. No other shoe I own does this. Its so too bad because they look just great.
