These sandals are very comfortable and look great with skirts or capri's. I got them mainly to wear out to casual/slightly dressy places and they are great for that. I have not walked a long distance in them so I don't know how they would feel if I did but that's not what I bought them for. They are perfect for very hot weather because they are so open. I'm glad I bought them.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
