Ordered a pair of Dopie sandals (from Terra Plana - the Vivo people)
Thanks, Sue, for posting about them in this thread. I'll review them once they've arrived and I've had the chance to wear them for a bit.

They look good.
I've got a pair of Australian flip-flops (thongs, as the Aussies call them) going under the brand name 1000-miler Gumbies. Those are pretty good. They have a cork top and a thin but fairly tough car-tyre-like sole. Many flip-flops now seem to be fairly thick, so you lose proper sense of the ground, and quite a few even have heels. Trust big manufacturers to spoil a good idea. But the Gumbies I like.
