The Montrail Mmolokais are better. I thought that I would try these considering the description. Wearing them full time, these all have about a one year life, then retire to part time in the yard. We have had a couple of pairs of Montail Molokais after years in Reefs. The Olu Kai, side straps loosened up after a couple of months from the new tight. The front sole catches and bends under sometimes, can be a trip hazard when you least expect it. This Oolu Kai is second best overall.

I'd also recommend: Montrail Molokai

I usually wear 9½ and the 10 fits perfectly. The cushion in the sole is soft while the arch support is very solid. It is, like another reviewer put it, "like walking on a cushion of air." They are still comfortable when wet and they dry quickly. I am hoping that they wear well and last forever.

I wear flip flops most of the time during 3 seasons in the northeast. These are all day comfortable and great (and grippy) when they get wet.

OluKai flat out makes the best sandals and shoes there are. Overall I have 11 different pairs of OluKais, and no I do not work for them. The sandals cannot be touched by anything else out there for style and comfort. The Kia'Is are my go to the beach sandals, walk in the surf sandals, my play sandals. Love them. Buy them you will be glad you did, especially your feet!

I'd also recommend: Stick with OluKai

Terrific sandal. Breaks in in a few days. Love the fit, style, color & I'm pretty confidant that the OluKai will last quite a long time.
