Frédérik here with an update on those topless sandals I wrote about over a month ago. I haven't had the chance to take them out for another - spin? - until now. But now that I have, I remain convinced that these are the awesome. Keeping in mind some of the tiny glitches from last time, I made a few corrections that resulted in a more consistently satisfying experience. First, I wore pants with shorter cuffs. By not walking on the edges, thereby getting fabric trapped between my foot and the sandal, I didn't put the sandal in a position to get partially unstuck. Second, I didn't fuss around - once I stuck them on, they stayed on, something helped by actually walking around more. I've been wearing these all day and my feet feel free; I am definitely getting myself another pair in a different colour.
If you try these out, drop me a line and let me know what you think!
