I first bought the universals, but the texture of the part that meets the bottom of your foot bothered me a bit. I decided to exchange them for these, and it was a good choice for me. I find them more cushioned and like that the bottom is a bit more robust as I do plan to use them for river shoes. They're very light and comfortable.
The souls are a bit clunkier comparatively and they squeak a bit when I walk, but they're otherwise perfect. I like how you can adjust the fit in several ways and the straps dry quickly.
The Hazel black pattern is actually grey flowers with light pink accents. The pattern is cuter in person. I like the subtle bit of color.
I am an 8.5 and in most shoes that don't have half sizes I usually have to size up, but in these the 8 fit perfectly.
