    I bought a pair of Osos size 9,5 a couple of months ago that I can't seem to get a long with. I desperately want to get sandals to work and I thought this time would be different but i'm giving them up now.
    These are in mint condition and comes with the new Traditional Ribbon black laces. MGT footbed.
    Location Sweden but i can ship them with the Global mail for a small fee so they shouldn't be any object for the customs or so.
    I want 45 $ plus 15 $ shipping for them but let me know if it's too expensive. Better someone that are accustomed to sandals gets them.

    Bummer. I believe I'm more of an 8.5-9.
    I LOVE my luna venados, but am thinking I would like something thicker for the granite gravel trails.

    OK I will take them for 45$ and free shipping to Germany. Maybe they can replace my hiking boots in the mountains. Xeros are quite OK there but will fail in muddy wet conditions. That should be better with the Osos if I get the ads right.

    According to my wife if you get a pair of injini socks you can pretty much wear them in all conditions we deal with out here, even mud. I have had issues with mine in mud and bare feet due to the slippery surface between the foot and the sole once they get wet and muddy. I could see how the socks would definitely help.

    The venados are the first sandals that I wear snugly around my foot. I always hated that, but these are comfortable, mold around my foot, and really give great grip in the mud. And there is a lot of mud on the trails here lately. I think you recommended them when I started the thread. Thanks. I might order a pair of the osos eventually. I'm really beating up on the venados now, but they take it better than any sandal I've ever had.

    Also, did you see they offer a goretex liner/sock thingie now for the sandals???? I got an email about it this spring. Your wife might like that too.

    I did see that, it looks like a pretty good option, I wonder how well they hold up? It says they are fleece which is interesting. She bought a pair of smart wool injinis that she is very fond of.

    Glad you are liking them so much. Like I said before I was always skeptical about Luna's, but once I tried them I realized they really are a good product. You can extend the life a while if you shoe goop the yellow thing once it starts wearing off.

    I find the venados mostly slippery on wet leafs, you're right they do pretty well in mud though. Usually I don't have a problem with mud until its deep enough where your whole foot is submerged. And then its really only an issue on hills where your foot slips off the footbed and the straps stretch from being wet. The Oso's really work well in technical rocky trails. The sole thickness is the main difference, then the actual soling material is definitely more grippy than the venados. They also don't mold to your feet as your are used to with the venados the rubber is much more dense.
