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.

Love the wedge which gives more support than traditional flat flip flops. Great for the beach plus walking around town. Extremely comfortable, True to size - no need to buy one size up.

This is my second pair of these sandals. I've worn the first pair for 2 (maybe 3) summers. I love them and was desperate to find a replacement pair. The first pair are actually in pretty good shape, but I wanted a newer pair to go on vacation with. I still wear the old pair for "everyday." I usually wear a size 9 1/2 in sandals, but in these I wear a 10.

I easily and delightedly give these little "pillows for me feet" five out of five stars, all the way around. When I brought mine home, I used a suede-nubuck, protector on them. There are times, when I do get them wet. Not even a 'water circle' remains on the leather. I too feel like they will last forever. So sturdy, yet so feminine, and comfy beyond belief! Nice enough to feel appropriate in them most anywhere. They seem to remain appearing almost "brand new" and do not seem to wear down "shabby". I was fortunate enough to find my first pair at a discount dept store. I would not expect that too happen again. I am happy to pay Ocean-Minded's price. They are so worth it!! Thanks for such great sandals. Love 'em!

Purchased this pair of shoes as I wanted a casual flip flop heel with comfort. LOVE the shoes! Took a couple of days to break in one shoe, but now they are so comfortable. I have several pair of Reef Sandals and I would choose Ocean Minded any day over Reef. The color is not as pictured, as they are sand in color and not the oily brown that I expected. However, I don't care as their comfort outweighs the color. Have had them a couple of weeks and they withstood walking the strip at Las Vegas several times over!

Ocean-Minded Del Mar flip - I like these flips because they look great, they're made well and I think they will last. There is one small problem...when my feet are a little sweaty, they slide slightly on the flip which causes an annoying squeak, but his could happen in any sandal that has a smooth footbed. I think I've solved the problem by rubbing a little talcum powder well onto the soles of my feet. After long periods of wearing these flips, the talcum powder might have to be re-applied. They are a very light-weight and comfortable flip with good arch support. I have an 8.5 foot so I ordered a half size up to 9...perfect. Thanks Zappos for the BEST service ever!

Great flips - I just needed a flip flop that looked better than the cheep rubber ones I wear around the house. These were ready to wear with no rubs or blisters, in fact I spent the week end walking around SoHo and my feet were great. It helps that they are eco-friendly too. Too bad they don't come in a bigger variety of colors.

Ocean Minded Del Mar Review - I recently bought these for my fiancé. She has owned a pair of Reefs, which lasted her a few years. She definitely likes the look and feel of these sandals much better than her Reefs. The narrow strap and high heel were the exact attributes that she was looking for. Great looking sandal for the beach and a casual night out. Highly recommended.

Very comfortable flip flop - I was looking for a flip flop that had a little heel and wasn't totally flat. I like the way the Reefs look, but this flip flop looks very similar and it does have the heel I was looking for. They do take a few days of wearing for break in, but once you do, you'll love them.

These are great and comfortable! This is my 2nd year of wearing them and they just get better with time. The slight heel gives good heel cushioning, they are just plain good and comfortable. I would highly recommend them. Really wish they also made them in black!

Just what I was looking for - This flip-flop is exactly what I was looking for - feminine yet practical. I need something for everyday running around that is comfortable, but more stylish than the standard flip-flop. The narrow straps and slight heel are perfect. The straps were a little stiff at first, but even a day at the zoo didn't create any serious friction or blisters (I have a low arch, but I can see how someone with a high arch may experience more discomfort with the straps). I usually wear an 8 1/2 and the 9s fit me just barely. I originally bought a pair of Reefs, but they were not flattering - wide straps and flat, they looked just like my husbands shoes. They are now relegated to the closet in favor of these.

Flipping for these flip flops - These flip flops are so comfy! The Ocean Minded Del Mar has a bit higher heel than the Reef Costa Rica, which I normally purchase. Love that, but they run small.

Ocean Minded Del Mar Sandal - I really like this flip flop. The reviews I read before buying the shoe really helped me decide what size to buy. I wear an 8-8 1/2. The reviews stated that the shoe ran small and it does. I bought a size 9 and it fits perfect. It is comfortable.

Great thongs - These thongs are very comfortable and sturdy. The red is a blue red, which is the perfect red I was looking for. I wish they had more colors.

Perfect summer flip flop - I've been looking for a brown leather flip flop that didn't have a thick thong for some time. This fits the bill. Because the thong is made of fabric, this shoe looks great and is comfy for my narrowish feet. I usually wear an 8-8.5, but a 9 in this fits great. Also, the shoe has decent arch support so I can wear them all day comfortably.

As comfortable as slippers! This shoe feels great and looks great! It is comfortable enough for a long stroll and withstands water well. Order a 1/2 size larger than normal, though!

My Reef sandals were worn out, when I decided to buy these shoes based on the reviews. I wear them all the time now. If you feel like you need some support from your flip-flops then these are the ones for you.

A step up from your basic flip flop - Very comfortable and just a bit classier than a rubber brown flip-flop. Perfect for summer clothes from jeans to casual skirts to shorts. I'm usually either an 8.5 or a 9 though and 9 is a bit small (not long enough) so would definitely order 1/2 to 1 size larger. I have narrow feet though and this shoe was one of the few flip-flops that doesn't fall off my feet.
