  • Make sure to get the right size to get full ability of footwear

I LOVE THIS PRODUCT!!! I must clarify that i did use this item as daily footwear, but did for 3 YEARS and still going!!! I say daily I literally mean everyday; I walk a lot of wooded trails and would wear them as a work shoe involving  one to be on their feet for hours.  Great as a work shoe and running around.  

As for technical wear bear in mind that they were given to me as a gift so they were at least a size too big, maybe 1.5 ( it's a clog what's it matter). Great cushion, good tread/sole, my only issue was that once they got wet the insole would slip out as you'd walk; could be due to the wrong size causing tightening to not work.  

Very durable!


Buy them. You will love them! I found mine at Gabriel…

  • Comfort
  • Durability
  • Traction
  • They're really cool looking
  • Lightweight


  • I really don't have any complaints at all

I found mine at Gabriel Brothers (don't know if you're familiar with them). They were $15!!! I've worn them for about 6 years.

I also took out the footbed insole and wear them without. Mine should be a half size bigger to utilize the insole but a larger size. They're extremly comfortable. I actually used the insole in another pair of shoes. I wear these to work, shopping, they're my go-to shoes when traveling. In the snow, in the rain. They are excellent. I would like to have them in brown and green; I have blue.

I tried to get my mother to buy them first, but she didn't appreciate their unique beauty. She thinks they're the ugliest things she's ever seen. I've been complimented on them numberous times.

Worn daily, since 2007, repairing computers, motor vehicles, in rainy weather, and in dry, Mion Pen Shells are PERFECT!

Mowing five lots on my riding mower, shopping in malls, hunting swamp gators in Florida, they have shown zero wear!

I build/refurbish, stock the Seminole County, Florida library bookstore with Linux Mint computers, and move them from concrete warehouse, to truck, to build area, then, to the sales floor; and I fish, hunt, kill, cook, and eat tasty animals, in them!

ONLY one flaw, they are OUT OF STOCK planet wide! I hope the aliens who made them return so I can get them in other colors! Have GREEN, so they resemble the gators I love to catch, and eat!

Want the RED Mion Pen Shells, in size 10, for my XXX wide feet, to resemble the Boa Constrictors that are soooo tasty! And, want them in all the colors!

I get great comments on them, from everyone, and folks want to know where to get some!


I 100% agree with all you say!!!

They are VERY comfortable but are not very durable. I have only used them for casual walking and have developed a tear in the top of the shoe. Also very heavy.
