          Good looking. Feels really good. But, that plastic lock on the strap across the foot is impossible to lock if you are having difficulties with arthritis in the hands or fingers, or just have a weakness in that area. So sad. Shoes feel so good.

          Ordered my second pair of Kisumu. The original Kisumu was much softer (suede) and more comfortable. The heal strap was very uncomfortable. (Constantly rubbing against the ankle bone) Had to return. This Kisumu 3-S style is more attractive than the original, but the workmanship is not the same. I love MBT's, and ordered a different style.

          I have been purchasing MBT's for many years now, specifically the Kisumu style. The original ones were on the clunky side but the most comfortable shoe I have ever worn. As the years passed by and the Company went through some changes they came out with the Kisumu 2. This one did not work for me, the straps were not comfortable and I could not make it work. I searched to find the original ones but they were gone. Then, happily MBT came out with another choice calling it the Kisumu3. A more feminine design which was appealing so I tried the red leather one. I was thrilled to find it works, not like the first one but still very comfortable and wearable. So when I saw these Bronze ones I had to try them. I cannot wear other shoes and my red ones really work well. Now I am thrilled to say the Bronze ones are exactly like the red ones but a little dressier and fun. They look more silver to me than bronze and I just love them and they go with everything. I could not be happier!

          This is my 5th pair of these shoes. I am delighted that they are now being made in red which is the color I purchased. These shoes have kept me walkiing by eliminating pressure on the forefoot. I wear them in the summer and with heavy socks in colder weather. I did not rate them a 5 becasue you need to be careful about aligning the heel strap or it will chafe your skin. A liitle extra width in the strap would have corrected this. Another con is if you tend to pronate, this shoes does not help. I added scaffoids to the arch in myi shoes and it helped immensely.

          MBT shoes are known for clunky comfort, but this one adds some flair to the line-up. I agree with the other reviewers who said the footbed sole feels slightly narrower, but I'll sacrifice that for all day walking comfort when sightseeing in museums and city streets. I would not recommend this model MBT as an exercise sandal, but would recommend it for travel and everyday comfort.

          These replaced my original Kisumu sandals which I loved and wore religiously until sadly, the Masai sensor disintegrated. I'm pleased with these so far. I especially like the microfiber lining. It is superior in comfort to what was previously used. I practically swoon when I slip them on! I like the streamlined look but feel that some comfort has been lost due to the slimmer profile. In a side by side comparison the Kisumu 3 straps and buckles are a smidge smaller which makes the sandals look much less clunky. I love my new pair much as my old ones, just for different reasons.
