First off, I can't say that these were not comfortable, because they were, as long as you wore a sock with them. I initially started testing them for a long beach hike (Lost Coast, CA) by wearing them around the neighborhood walking the dog. They were relatively comfortable without socks, but I think anything longer than 2 miles would start to get a bit too clammy for my taste. Also, I think a hike longer than that could potentially start to create hot spots.
Next, I tried them while wearing socks...nice, comfortable, could hike/wear them for hours or all day use. Felt like an air-ry light hiking shoe.
My plan was to wear them down the beach for a 26 mile hike along the surf. I was going to be wearing some sort of water sock (ended up being the NRS Hydroskin), and I was hoping this combination would make for a great "forget what you're wearing" shoe along the tides.
Well, it didn't take long for myself and brother, who was wearing the same shoe, to realize we'd made a huge mistake. Within a hundred yards or so there was quite a bit of sand in the shoe...okay, no big deal. Within a couple miles we'd stopped so many times to take the rocks/pebbles/rough sand/etc out of our shoes we were getting pretty annoyed..... Okay, just deal with it we thought.
After some time our feet eventually got wet. Well, this just added to the problem, as now very course sand was sticking everywhere to the shoes and our feet...washing them off was pointless.
By the end of the trip, both our feet were significantly tender, raw in spots, and blistered from trying to adjust foot position/stride to minimize soarness.
Again, they were comfortable under non-sandy/wet conditions. They also did not fall apart, or show any signs of it, after a difficult three-day hike is conditions that we thought would make them fail if they were going to.
These would be great on a boat or at the pool, but those don't apply to me, so I'll be returning them.
