Mion Slack Tide Thong
I currently own the slack Tide Thong in Red. I absolutely love this shoe. Extremely form-fitting and comfortable, I wear them just about anywhere, but they are especially good for days I spend on the kayak or boating.
I have never been complimented so much on a pair of shoes either! People are always asking me where got them and agree they not only look good, but are extremely functional as well!
The only reason this did not get five stars is that the toe piece tends to rub on one foot if my feet swell for some reason (altitude change). It only bothers me the first couple times I wear them in the season and is great the rest of the year.

You probably thought there was no such thing as a performance thong. Think again. The Mion Slack Tide women's thong features a Super-Structure ribbed upper that is firm enough to protect the foot, yet pliable enough to accommodate the user's width and foot characteristics. It also features an Ergomorphic footbed with EVA inserts and a sticky Gripstick rubber outsole, further evidence that the Mion Slack Tide thong is worthy of exploration beyond the pool or beach. After wading in to pull your boat ashore or just to feel the surf at your feet, the Mion Slack Tide thong transitions back to dry land much better than models with fabric or leather uppers.
