All Day Comfort
I was looking for a casual comfortable slip-on. I wanted the Santa Cruz, but it is not available in my size. The Walu is a little dressier. I was able to wear these all day while at a casino and had no issues. They were a little stiff at first but I expect them to wear nicely. New they reminded of when I was a kid, too clean and crisp.
My only issue is after 1 full day of wear, while riding in the car, one of the drain hole rivets popped out. At $50 , I would have expected better.
As for recommending to a friend, I'd say do with the Santa Cruz, if they are not a size 14...
