My family and I are going our annual trip to Disney. Yes it kills me to go and I pay for it the week agter we come back but this is about making memories with my girls. In any case, I am wondering what sandals you all find the most comfortable. I am looking for a closed toe sandal as I don't like open toe. I know some people like crocs, Birkenstock, etc. I used to love my Tera sandals but the hurt too bad to wear them this year. Just looking for opinions

Has anyone else been exposed to black… read more
