The rubber sole combined with the tread pattern on the bottom is going to be able to work together to help give you a little bit of traction while you're walking. Of course, if you encounter a wet spot or happen to have a run-in with some other type of slick spot, you should definitely proceed with caution, but for the most part, these sandals will be able to do a decent job of keeping you upright and prevent you from sliding around on the ground.
The Memory Foam will allow your feet to sink right in and will mold to the shape of your foot, providing you the proper support and padding where you will need it. The EVA foam gives you a bouncy underfoot feel, giving you a beautiful little spring in your step while you're out and about.
The straps have a synthetic and soft lining on the underside of them to ensure you get a pleasant feel against your skin and it will help reduce the risk of rubbing and blisters which can become painful and cause some significant discomfort.
Even though most of your foot is exposed to the air, it is nice to know that the straps, combined with the lining, have a decent amount of breathability. Of course, most of your foot is not going to have any need for this feature, but you're not going to have to worry about the part of your skin that is located under the straps getting too hot and sweaty as the air can get to your foot through the leather straps.
They have a beautiful summer chic look to them that will go with most of your summer attire. Whether wearing a sundress or a pair of jean shorts, these sandals are going to be a great addition to your outfit. The Hush Puppies are only available in two colors, and there are a lot of people who would have liked more of a variety, but most consumers are OK with what they have available to them. You can get the shoes in both dark brown leather or black leather, so you are likely to find the perfect pair for your style needs.
The Hush Puppies Olive Gladiators have a moderate price tag, not the cheapest out there but by no means the most expensive either. Don't let that scare you though, and they are well worth the extra money you will spend on them. They are going to last you a while, and there will be no need to replace them for quite some time so you will be saving a little bit of money in the long run when you are purchasing these sandals.
As for the arch support, the Memory Foam footbed shapes to your particular foot, giving you the extra padding that you need where you need it the most. Whether you have moderate or high arches, these shoes are going to provide you with the support that you need, in all the right places.
One of the best parts about these sandals that customers can appreciate is that they are available for purchase in both medium and wide widths. It can be difficult sometimes when you have wide feet to find cute footwear that fits you, but that isn't a problem you'll encounter with these shoes. They cater to many foot sizes so they can reach more women.
