I actually did buy a pair of Nike sandals and hiked into Monument 78 to meet
Swiss, PA Jeff, Molson, Skylark , Fallingwater and Lucky in Sept. of 2000.
The Nikes were a poor subitute to Teva's as the stretchy fabic around heals
started tearing in only 15 miles.I am happy with the NB 803's. I will give
the Teva some more testing. Dave ( Walkon) was the only hiker I saw with zero
blisters in 2000 early desert section. For those who remember, 2000 was much
hotter than 2001 during the early sections. Hot feet sweat and the more your
feet breath , the better. Goretex anything on your feet during hot desert
hiking is a quick recipe to blisters. My feet were in good shape last year
verses the blisters I had in 2000. Live and learn!!
