Hello Fitflop, I need to preface my comments with a note, that I have two pairs of Fitflop shoes that I am very happy with, the fabric takkies and the Fisherman sandals. Which is why I confidently bought the RALLY shoes on line. Unfortunately, I am not happy with them, they look and feel very hard and ungainly. If I did not know better, I would think they are made of plastic. I did expect a more finessed shoe made of a softer leather. As I recently had a foot operation i thought the Velcro straps would make putting on shoes easier - this is the case but unfortunately i do not feel comfortable wearing them all the time.
I've searched long and hard to find the ultimate shoe of comfort that I could wear from day into night without the hassle of tripping over my own feet because of the laces got them in white sooo happy and my feet are too :)
