EDIT: Owner Review - Teva Terra-Fi2 Sandals
- Hi Eric,
Pretty good job here. I've made some edits and posed a couple of
questions for information that might be useful additions. Once
you've had a chance to make the changes, please repost it to the
group with REPOST in the subject line. I'll take another look
through it and we'll see about getting it a permanent home at BGT.
To speed things up, you might also want to create an HTML version of
your reposted review and post it to the Test folder (use the Owner
Review sub-folder) on backpackgeartest.org and we'll be able to move
things along faster.

review --- do you wear socks with these? Do socks help control the
odor? How are they strapped on -- around the ankle strap, do they
have one of those vertical straps between the big toe & the 2nd toe?
