Features to Note:

In-use Test:

The Omnium were certainly very comfortable straight out of the box and remained so throughout a number of short (1-2 miles) walks on both wet and dry asphalt and sandy pathways.

The fit is generous (my normal shoe-size is UK 10.5, but the test pair were a UK size 10) and there are a number of options for customising them - the ankle strap, the top of foot lacing and at the back of the heel. So it really was easy to get a snug fit. The inner sole is well padded and the foot bed provided a very good level of arch support. There was good traction on both the dry and wet surfaces I tried them out on.

The covered design meant that I could use my right-shoe orthotic which for me was a huge advantage over a more conventional sandal design. I could also wear them with socks - which as I was testing these in an early UK Spring was also rather convenient! So far the anti-microbial protection has worked in that I've not experienced any odour - however, the cooler test temperatures may have helped with this. More on this as the summer progresses . . . .

I'm usually wary of wearing sandals when cycling - but I would be happy with these for leisure/commuter cycling as well.

Buying Advice:

If you're looking for footwear with the flexibility of a sandal but with some additional toe and heel protection, then do consider the Omnium. They are a great option for crossing streams and shallow rivers when you need good quality, lightweight footwear that will keep out debris, provide good traction and will dry quickly.
