Comfy, and the sole grips to surfaces well. I wear them at work where im on my feat for 5-7 hours and they provide enough cushion that I dont go home with throbbing feat. In fact, I wear them around the house as house shoes too. Haven't used the pouch, but I would imagine it would be useful in a beach scenario where pockets and storage is limited.
Feels true to size
Feels too wide
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
