My favorite "go-to" sandals. Very comfortable and durable. I bought these instead of comparable Merrells because (1) the NB Minimus fits better -- it is wider than the Merrells and (2) the NB Minimus looks better than the Merrells. I'm very satisfied with my purchase.

This is not a minimalist flip flop. It is far to thick. I have the MT 20BG version 1 and the sole on these thongs feels nothing like the MT20. I returned these I got a pair of reefs that were thinner.

Best flip flops ever! The bed of the shoe is so comfortable it is almost like a massage on the foot. I am wearing these for everything this summer, including golf! Wide strap over foot is also very comfortable and does not rub or chafe with extended wearing. I usually wear a 9.5 but since they don't have half sizes I ordered a 9. Ended up needing to send them back for a 10 which fits perfectly.

These looked cool, and had quite the rugged sole on them, fit fine for size, but the material used on the piece that goes between your big and second toe is strangely harsh and uncomfortable. I found it also had too thick of a sole for what seemed to be marketed as a minimalist thong/flip flop, it was no thinner than an older pair of shoe-like (ones with straps) Nike flip-flops I have.

The sportiest of my flips, can do a lot of my workout wearing them and of course can be shed quickly for barefoot training. Excellent support of arch but still allowing minimalist techniques.

I'd also recommend: Reef
