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.

I actually love this shoes, it's extremely comfortable and I would wear them all the time; however, they make a strange noise when my heel meets the bed of the shoe which sounds just like a fart. Sorry but there is no other way to describe it. Since I don't want to be walking around out in public with my Fart flip flops I just wear these around the house. Its been a few weeks since I started wearing them and I'm hoping through the regular wear and tear will fix my Flip Flop Flatulence at some point otherwise. I think it's the material that causes the noise combined with the pressure of my foot moving across it. Either way my Flatulent Flip-Flops will remain at the house. Disappointing but reality.

I love these sandals. They are very comfortable, and I like having a bit of a heel. I am a size 8 1/2 shoe size, and usually wear an 8 in flip flops, but listened to the review and went up to a 9, and they are perfect. I recommend going up a half size.

Very comfortable to use anywhere casual. The straps are a little loose so it should be really great for those with wide feet, but still fine for medium width feet.

Squeaky! Super comfy, but the material squeaks against your feet with every step. As much as I love Spongebob Squarepants, I don't want to sound like him when I walk. Bu-bye, sandals!

Love the color, which is more of a suntan than in the picture. Very comfortable after a day or two. My only complaint is that after they have gotten thoroughly wet once, the leather on the footbed becomes very slick, which makes your foot really slide around when walking from that day on (even when dry). I have yet to find a pair of leather sandals where this isn't the case, though, so I would definitely buy them again! And, of course, Zappos Service was outstanding as always!!

The straps dug into my foot and cut up the top of my feet. I ordered the distressed brown and the color was more like a dusty khaki. Luckily Zappos has such AMAZING customer service that I emailed them after wearing to report the discomfort issues and they allowed me to return them. I would not recommend these sandals, but I would definitely recommend Zappos to anyone else!

These are very basic flip flops, which was great, but my felt like they slid around a lot, and that while not too wide, the straps were too loose. They go back.

Speedy delivery. This shoe is exactly what I was hoping for. True to size on the fit; comfortable leather flip flop with a slight wedge and a little arch support. This is an attractive flip flop I can wear to the beach or with a casual skirt.

These shoes are instantly comfortable from the minute you put them on. They feel "broken in" before you have to break them in. The only caution I would give is I could feel the area where the straps hook to the back of the shoe - it's not bad and I believe it will soften as I wear them; but if you have really wide feet back there you might want to think about this (I do).

These are great flip flops. Very comfortable and look nice. I ordered my regular size and they fit, though as others mention, they are a little short. So, if you are between sizes, go up.

This shoe fit true to size. I took it on a trip after purchasing but allowed for some break in time. I did have a small blister where the thong area rubbed on left foot (nothing on right?) but both slightly uncomfortable at first. After the break in period (about one week - never very painful) I couldn't be happier with the sandals - no more trouble with the shoe rubbing anywhere. Style is great, fit is excellent. Will have to say that the break in time is only a fraction of the time of the other leading brand of leather flip flops. I almost cried through that break in time. These are much better in every aspect. I would never go back to the other brand. I just wish the black in this version was available. Would consider other colors as well. Love!

I have only worn the shoes 4 or 5 times. When buying sandals I usually buy a thong style. So I think of the skin between my toes as being pretty tough. The Ocean Minded Del Mar actually caused enough damage in the area that it scabbed! I will try again in a few weeks after the area has toughened from wearing other thong style sandals. Other than the thong part they are comfortable enough.

I am a Rainbow fanatic, but had to try these after I looked up info on Ocean Minded Del Mar. First day they fit like a glove, not like other thongs that get tight in between the toe. Felt like I had them for years, no need to break them in. I wear a 7.5 and order an 8.

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!
