    Comments about Nashbar Ragster II Cycling Sandals:

    I don't use the clip on capability. They are comfortable and bought to replace a pair of worn out Teva sandals which have been discontinued. They cost less than half of the other Teva Sandals available today. So far, I use them for walking, not biking. The ankle strap cuts into my ankle if I don't use a band aid, but that has happenned with other sandals as well. They look good and seem to be durable. I will buy another pair when the time comes.

      like these

      By Pete

      from North Vancouver, BC, Canada

      About Me Commuter

      Pros

      • Doesn't Absorb Much Water
      • Stiff sole
      • Very adjustable

      Cons

      • Footbed Uncomfy At First

      Best Uses

      • Commuting/City

      Comments about Nashbar Ragster II Cycling Sandals:

      As others have mentioned, the footbed is covered with "pads", but the pads also have tiny bumps (1 mm diameter), usually 1 or 2 bumps per pad. It's these bumps that feel like you have coarse sand in the sandals. I spent an hour cutting off the bumps using flush-cutting side cutters. You wouldn't be able to do it with regular side cutters; they have to be true flush-cutting ones. (google it, if you don't know what I mean)

      After that, they're fairly comfy.

      I wear a size 10.5 - 11 US men's jogging shoe, and I bought the size 45/46. They're a bit too big, but if I ever wear socks with the sandals, there'll be plenty of room. There's enough adjustment range in the straps so that I can snug them up despite them being a bit big. To those people who say the straps are too short, you bought a size too small!

      Be careful with online sizing charts. There's a difference between US sizes and UK sizes.

      I like that these sandals are plasticky, so they shouldn't absorb much water or sweat. That's one of the main reasons I bought them. I didn't want to use my Keen Newports for daily commuting because the webbing stays wet all day.

      About weight: they weigh about the same as Keen Newports. Not noticeable at all, to me. But then I wore Doc Martens sandals for 10 yrs and those were a lot heavier.

      I agree with others that the pale gray footbed isn't the best colour for a footbed, but oh well, these are for function, not style.

      I really like the stiff soles, yet they're perfectly comfy when walking around before/after biking.

      I'd give these 5 stars if they fixed the bumpy footbed.

        Quite a bargain, already proced affordably I got these with a discount coupn and love them. Nice airly, seem sturdy and the recessed cleat hole makes walking around in SPD's easy. Highly recommended.

        Comments about Nashbar Ragster II Cycling Sandals:

        I like the product, but have returned them. I wanted to use them on a cycling trip in Europe. Figured I could clip in on the bike, and also use them off-bike as regular sandals. However, I can't mount my SPD-SL cleats, and they're on the heavy side to carry for 4 weeks in a backpack when not riding. Would be great if I were still commuting to work and using regular SPD cleats or flat pedals. Seem well-constructed and stiff enough for riding.

          It is hot in Houston - darn hot - and your feet get hot - darn hot - these sandals solved the issue - now I have the breeze on my feet. They are a little heavy but this works well by keeping the sole stiff and saves your feet from to much flex. Started wearing them around to get use to them and they conform quickly to your feet and got no blisters. You also get cool points from people asking where you got them from.

            Great sandals had to send the first pair back because they were too big. I went by the size chart on the web site. It is not accurate. Second pair in smaller size was perfect. However I was charged $7.99 shipping for the exchanged. Even though the size chart was flawed.

            I do enjoy these sandals. I where socks with them so the inner sole does not bother me. I can walk in them. In Florida summer riding I certainly appreciate these sandals
