Features to Note:

In-use Test:

I've worn the Source Gobi Adventure Sandals on a a number of shorter walks on relatively straight forward terrain. I've been testing a men's sandal size 45 - which is my normal shoe size. The 3 adjustment points at heel, front and arch of the foot meant it was quick and simple to get a good fit. All three straps are really well padded so when combined with the nice stable sole I found the Source Gobi Adventure Sandal to be a very comfortable, relatively light sandal.

The soles also have a good level of stiffness so were good over more uneven ground. However, the lugs on the soles are relatively shallow so the traction on less stable ground was less than I would like.

Buying Advice:

These are certainly a well designed, extremely comfortable pair of sandals with a fair usage based guarantee. Whilst my personal preference is to wear walking boots for walking any significant distances, these are light enough to have in the backpack to cope with a stream/shallow river crossing when the quick-drying straps are a real bonus.
