North Face River Rat Sandals

EMS is currently selling North Face River Rat Sandals for $39.99, $55 everywhere else.

I picked up a pair. No velcro, great non-marking soles, comfortable, and seem like they will not come off in the water no matter how crazy it gets. I will let you know how they work once they are field tested. Sure are nice for just walking around.

...They look good but I'm curious how the strap channels will load up with evil sand (that seems to master every defense).
No velcro & sturdy snaps a step in the right direction!

Certainly is a possibility, but that wouldn't really bug me unless they got bulky under my soles. I like the strap system because there is only one endpoint with a nylon adjustment that controls the whole assy.

I'll tell you if it turns out to be a problem, but in any case they will be a quality pair of sandals for the money even if they can't handle Nauset surf, which is better dealt w/ by wearing waders anyway. They do appear to be good kayak sandals, boat, jetty hopping, etc.
