My boyfriend loves these! Super comfortable, little to no breaking-in required. His favorite feature is that they can get wet, but your feet don't slip in them.

Narrow! The tender arch of your foot ends up sitting on top of the strap where it meets the base. This was really uncomfortable so it was an immediate return.

The stitching that joins the three straps irritates the top of my foot. I put adhesive tape on the stitching and a Bandaid on my foot. I hope once my foot heels I'll be able to wear these.

I work 40 hours a week all year in sand, salt water, and mud and these scorpions are the only sandals that have lasted more than 2 weeks. I have had Columbias, Reefs, and Birkenstocks. These are by far the strongest and most comfortable, will buy these again and again. A+

These are comfortable the first time worn, they didn't require any break in. I wouldn't hesitate buying again when I need another pair.

Horrible flip flop! Bought these right before going on a boating weekend this past summer. The high hard arch was murder on my feet but I was saved by the fact that they fell apart within 48 hours. The soles are glued on and both of the shoes started peeling apart between the foot bed and sole before the end of the weekend. My kids are Croc addicted. It's too bad that Ocean Minded is such a poor addition to their brand.

I just received them a few days ago (a head of schedule like always with Zappos). They're much heavier than my Reefs but these are leather and the old ones were a foam. They are also very hard. I believe they will wear in and become more comfortable but at this point pretty hard and heavy. They did fit well.

My son has plantar faciitic and can't walk barefoot or else he will be in a lot of pain. These flip flops have a molded footbed with support in the right spots. He wears them in the house and they are so compfortable and relieve his pain.

They're very durable but, like most sandals, they take awhile to break in. The sole is comfortable and the strap feels fine after they've been broken in.

Great shoes for any casual summer activity. Not much arch support and sometimes feels a bit thin - can feel rocks under the sole occasionally. Not the best if you're doing a lot of walking. But, they look great and are perfect if you are attending an event or just hanging out for the day.

Very comfortable right out of the box. The raised strip fits just behind the pads of my toes and helps keep the shoe from sliding off mid-stride, and there's also a raised lip around the perimeter of the shoe. The material was lighter in color than the picture, and was quickly darkened by sweaty feet. It was also compacted significantly in the first week or two of use, but the sole itself is holding up amazingly well.

The sandals are comfortable and don't require much to break in. However, they do spot rather easily. Meaning if you get them wet or your feet are wet when you wear them, they darken immediately. Also they're comfortable, but not as comfortable as they made seem. They feel more like stacked egg cartons rather soft cushions. But they are comfortable none the less.

I was looking for a comfortable and stylish flop to perform double duty between the beach and post- Thai Boxing training. The Ocean Minded: Scorpion performs well. Decent (not extensive) arch support and looks great. Footbed is incredibly soft and comfortable. The hemp bottom tends to attract some dirt if you walk outside on terrain. They have not yet been beach tested, but they do appear to be easily darkened/discolored by water or even slight amounts of soiling on your feet due to the raw, foam- like material of the footbed. The Scorpions are definitely sturdy and feel very good. My only concern is how they will hold up aesthetically over time. Overall comfort and performance has been excellent. I would buy these again. And the OM logo is very cool.

Typically, I am not the biggest fan of sandals. I much prefer to slip on a pair of Pumas or Adidas than having my toes hanging out and heel flapping. However, these sandals have won me over. I am still not going to wear them as an everyday shoe, but they are comfortable enough to wear for a few hours on a boat, at the beach/boardwalk, or just chilling in the sun. I really like the suede bottoms, and the leather thongs were perfectly comfortable after the first wear. I refuse to wear footwear that takes hours/days to break in. I have read reviews of other sandals and do not understand how anyone could be happy with a product that takes hours to days to break in. Thankfully, these did not.

This shoe looks great! When you first put them on, they are a little uncomfortable. However, as you continue to wear them, they gradually break-in and become more comfortable.

Worn for almost two years - still love 'em. As a former Birkenstock wearer (I just can't get past how ugly they are anymore), I have a pretty good idea what a comfortable sandal is. These certainly fit the bill. Great arch support and a snug fit means you're not accidentally kicking them off as you walk. Will be ready for a new pair next summer probably, but these are still going strong! Love the distressed, worn in look. As an aside, much more comfortable (and stable) than Rainbows...their natural competitor. Cheaper, too!

My brother recommended this brand several years ago and it is the only flip-flop style my 14-year-old son wears. We buy a new pair every time he grows out of them. He needs an orthotic in his sneakers but this shoe has more support than any other of its type. And style-wise, they look as cool on my 14 year old at the beach as they do on my 45 year old brother in the city.

Great flip-flop - I was looking for a casual flip flop that was not rubber and would be comfortable. This was perfect! It has a bottom similar to that of a Birkenstock and the toe piece is very thin so it does not rub at all. Only small downfall was the bottom of the shoe was a little slick until it got worn in.
