My foot measures exact 6 1/2 - ordered a 7 and it's a perfect fit. These run exactly a half size smaller (I guess since they don't make half sizes). I thought the emblem on the side would have been metal, but it's wood. Other than that, it's a cute, practical flip flop.

Very cute flip-flop, good value for the money. Very disappointed that it was a full size smaller than marked.

These were really comfy; however, after 1 week of daily wear (I sit at a desk part of the day) they are all stretched out and hard to walk in without slipping off. Too bad, nice cute flip flop.

I agree with the reviewers who stated that the flip flop felt a whole size smaller. I generally wear a 9.5 or 10, and was hoping a 10 would work out, but my hell hung over the back edge of the flip flop. I'm going to order an 11 and cross my fingers, because I do like them very much. If I get a size that fits, I think they will be very comfortable.

I sized up to a 9 to accommodate slightly wide feet because many reviews said they run narrow. I found this to be a good recommendation. The straps feel loose though. The foot bed is soft and comfortable.

Strange, everyone seemed to love these shoes boasting their great comfort. I didn't find that at all. The straps cut into my feet where the thong part is and I have regular, not wide nor narrow, feet. Anyway, needless to say, though I liked the look of the sandal, I returned them.

I've bought these once a year for the past 6 years! I wear them almost year round in NC and they are by far, the best flip flop ever! Great warranty if you save your receipt and have any issues with them. I highly recommend!

I loved the way these looked in the picture and when they arrived. I am an 8 1/2 and slightly wide. I ordered a 9 and they felt ok while I was standing, but when I walked they felt very tight and uncomfortable, so they seem to run a little on the small side.

The Ocean Minded brand has been great and long-lasting for my husband, so I took a chance and bought a pair for my niece. She loved them! They are stylish and very comfortable for walking. They mold to the feet, giving it more of a custom fit feeling.

Great flip flops. these are sturdy and trendy and i still wear them around the house in the winter. the added height looks great with a sundress or short shorts to elongate your legs. great quality and very durable, would recommend.

I love these shoes. I usually wear anywhere between a 6.5-7.5 depending on the brand, so I ordered an 8 because of the reviews on here and they fit perfectly! I wanted a comfortable pair of flip flops that weren't completely flat (for better arch support and a little height wouldn't hurt). These are very comfortable and have a little over an inch heel. Some of the reviews said the straps were a little stiff at first but I didn't notice anything (no blisters or discomfort.) overall I would definitely recommend these shoes if you have a lot of walking and need something cute and comfortable!

I love the look of this flip flop. I am glad I got the distressed brown. They are very comfortable cushion-wise but the strap between the toes left me sore for days. Just took some breaking in and I love them!

After wearing through my third pair of Target flip-flops in a year, I decided to upgrade to something a little more durable. I have been very happy with the Del Mar flip-flops and wear them all the time now. I am chasing after my son every day and am six months pregnant, so comfort and durability mean a lot to me!

Slightly stiff toe separator, enough so you notice but not uncomfortable. Decent support for a thong. I like the slight lift in the height.

I really like the look and quality, but they run small. I'm pretty much a 9.5, and get my flip flops in 10s. My heal just barely fit and they were too narrow. I have a pretty wide foot, so don't ding them on this...though it's usually not an issue with flip flops. Possibly the stiffer leather straps make the difference.

Love these shoes! I walked all over Spain with them and they were perfect for comfort and appearance. They are a tad lighter in person than in the picture -- they are a perfect tan color to match a medium skin tone.

Because the chocolate brown isn't shiny, the shoes had a natural patina and didn't need distressing. I ordered size 7. Both feet fit, although one foot is a little larger and I wished for an additional 1/8" to 1/4" just because. I'm already dreading the time they have to be replaced. Comfortable and classy.

They felt a little stiff at first, but they broke in fairly quickly. They are great for everyday use and match almost every summer outfit!

These are probably the most comfortable flip flops I've even owned. I am 6 months pregnant and I have been looking for brown flip flops that were stylish but also provided a little more cushioning. And, these ended up to be EXACTLY what I was looking for. I definitely recommend them.

Love 'em! I usually wear 8-8.5. Despite others warnings I went with the 8. Fits great, my heal is at the end but not off the shoe and there is plenty of room at the toe. Looks dressy or casual. The straps are not as tight as I would like them on my foot but I have a pretty narrow foot and it is hard to find shoes that are. Overall I think they are great!

I wish I did not wear these and had returned them. I live in flip flops and have a million pairs. The strap on these do not feel comfortable. I wore these shopping in a mall; I could not wait to take them off. They are stiff and I may be impatient to break them in. I think they look great and the wedge gives a nice height increase without going too high. I will go back to Sanuk for comfort.

Love these! Now I can't wear any of my other flip flops because they don't have a wedge and aren't as supportive! They took quite a while to break in, so don't get discouraged. I wear an 8.5 generally and got a 9 in these and they fit well.

I'm very pleased with these. I was going to get the dark brown one but they only the distressed version in my size so i got those. The quality is very nice. I usually buy target's Mossimo leather flip flops but the edges run down and slip on any slick surface when it rains. So instead of dreading being out when it rains I bought Ocean minded flip flops which actually have a layer of rubber traction. They also have a firmer mid sold. The color of the leather is lighter than pictured, closer to a camel color. But I don't mind. It flatters my legs when they have a tan and makes them look look longer. Doesn't give much height and the distressed is just some scuffs and fading but I don't mind. Over all A+

I got these to replace a pair of Mia leather flip flops that I had for years and finally wore out. I was happy with the look of these shoes. Unfortunately, the strap on the left shoe kind of digs into the top of my foot. I'm hoping that once I break them in that that will correct itself. Other than that, they are comfortable and cute.
