I've worn these shoes about 10 times in the last month. I like the breathability and lightness of these shoes, and they are great for travel. I don't think they're really ideal as what they're marketed as - lesiure/athletic shoes. They were about $20, but the quality seems to be worth the price. They're nice if you need water shoes, a quick pair of slips ons, or a break from heels, but they're not great for huge amount of activity. I may be interested in buying another pair of the ones that have a patterned fabric.
