I've had a pair of these sandals for over four years now, and that's daily use. I've hiked miles on them with no discomfort. Only problem I ever had was if your foot gets wet it slips a little on the leather footbed, dries up quick though. I'm still using them but the toe strap is finally getting worn out. I'm definitely going to buy another pair - extremely comfortable and durable!

Great style and look, poor quality. I bought these five months ago while I was backpacking around Australia. After breaking them in for a few days they were great flip flops. After 5 months of average use, they really started to come apart. The color on top of the flip flop started showing wear and turning different shades of brown. The heel started to wear really thin and the canvas strap in between the toes gave out in a spectacular blow out while walking around Waikiki. Great style, great colors, pretty comfortable, but durability is severely lacking. Will go back to Reef sandals.

Long lasting and comfortable. Fabric toe strap is much better than leather in other styles. Wish they came in a variety of colors.

Very comfortable almost immediately with very little break-in time required (maybe a day or two, and even then it wasn't an uncomfortable break-in). Only had them a month so far, but they've held up well. They've been on a cross-country trip, out in the rain, and whatever else I've needed.

This will be the last pair or Open Minded flip flops I am buying. They are not the same shoes since Crocs bought the company, with a much harder sole and less cushioning. This shoe was previously known as the Mokolua, but the sandal by that name today is close to a lot. This Southern Baja is the same sandal in style, but construction is most definitely not. It still has fairly good arch support (I have flat feet), it is still made with leather and fits well, but the comfort while walking is gone. There used to be a squishiness to the rubber sole that made walking in these an all day affair with no problems, but that is no longer the case. I have been wearing these almost year round for the last 5-6 years (each pair last about 1.5-2 years), and unfortunately I will have to find a new flip flop after I am done with these ones. Maybe Crocs will read this and make them the way Ocean Minded used to. By the way, I buy these a bit larger than my shoe size because I hate having my heel come off the back. I have an 11-11.5 foot, but wear a size 12 sandal.

I'd also recommend: Reef, Rainbow
