Luna sandals?

Any of you have any experience with this? Looking at options for good guide sandals.

Thanks

No thong designs for me- need more secure style for the river if you value your toes

Same for me. I quit wearing sandals on the river a while ago; I got tired of my toes getting munched by rocks and thorns and such. On a trip last week, I tripped over something, and when I tried to recover I ended up kicking a big jagged rock. I was very glad to have close-toed shoes on when that happened.

Teva Churns for me: Tevaģ Official | Men's Churn | Free Shipping at Teva.com

I've been tempted to get a pair of 5.10 Water Tennies, but I've never found any I could try on first. A lot of people like them, though.

Even an old pair of sneakers or low-to-mid cut hikers work better than sandals, IMO.

The webbing wraps around the bottom of the sole, I would wear that down in no time. .. and for $90 I'll pass

I've been considering buying these...once they get cheaper

They look like they might actually dry out pretty quickly.

Not a big fan of velcro on the river. It wears out over time.

Yeah but you'd never need to adjust that heel strap so I wouldn't see it being an issue. You could always just sew it closed if it did fail. River shoes are basically all disposable overpriced garbage to begin with, I wear Chacos, which I hate, simply because they last and are difficult to get smelly.

The Luna sandals don't look good in my opinion. Not a fan of the thong type toe set up. Looks like it will easily catch on objects. The Luna sandals need a few more straps across the toe area.

Wow, $90 bucks for a rubber sole and 3 feet of leather thong. And I thought Chaco's were overpriced, they at least have a few buckles on them.

I would go with the over priced chaco's versus the lunas, at least they are of good quality and have a good reputation. The soles on the lunas look very thin, and the strap system does not look like it would hold your foot in place as well. Mine have all ways held up well.
Look around for a deal on the internet, or pro deal if you do some guiding, they are rather proud of em.
