The Sunbreeze is Discontinued as of March 2017No matter how much style each reviewer thought the Columbia Sunbreeze did or did not have, as soon as they slipped on these bad boys, they all lightened up on their initial criticism. Into more minimalist footwear? Then definitely try on the Sunbreeze. It has a low drop and has the most flexible sole of any of the sandals we tested. This shoe is comfortable, incredibly lightweight, and oh yeah - super affordable! Your wallet will only be $50 lighter after buying these breezy summer sandals.
The main factor that resulted in the lower score of this shoe was its style. Testers thought it looked fine as a performance piece, but was too drab to wear as a lifestyle shoe. And if one thing is true, our testers became quite demanding after testing so many excellent sandals. By the end of three months, they didn't want a shoe that performed in just one area, they wanted a sandal that excelled in all areas. Regardless, our Best Buy Award winner has plenty of versatility to get your $50 worth - and then some.
Not convinced that you can give up summer style? Check out the Teva Tirra, which combines style and performance for just $30 more.
