Super cute! I love these flip flops! They are super cute on your foot. Perfect for all casual summer-wear! They take some time to get used to though since they are a little stiff when you first get them. I would recommend them to anyone who wears flip flops all summer long! They seem to really hold up.

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!

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.

So comfy! I usually wear a 7 in sandals and a 7.5 in normal shoes, but I ordered an 8 in these. No arch support, but very cushy. You won't feel any rocks in these and you can wear them all day if your arches can handle flops. A tad nicer than rubber flops and my dogs like that too. This is my third pair. They keep eating them and I keep buying them. Hey, maybe the dogs are environmentally conscious.

I love these sandals, but as the other reviews have said they run a little small. So, if you are a half size I would recommend going up a size. Also, as stated in other reviews, they are really tight around the toe but do loosen a bit as they get broken in. They are very comfortable and cute!

I love these flip flops! They do take a little while to break in, but besides that they are very comfortable and the arch support feels great. They're also really cute! I love the color and the height is a nice addition to my 5'4" self. I'm normally a size 7-7.5, but after reading the reviews I bought an 8 and they were a teeny bit too big but not enough for me to return them.

Love these sandals! They are a little stiff at first, and the thong between the toes takes a little time to break in, but after that - no problems. They do run a little small. I like the concept and philosophy of Ocean Minded products.

I received my order within 2 days, thank you Zappos! These thongs are very comfortable, no breaking in necessary, I love the style and height. I thought the color would be good for not showing dirt as much but I have to scrub them after almost every time I wear them (no matter how clean my feet are). At least I always have cute clean flip flops and they're sturdy enough to scrub often and do dry quickly. Side note, they tend to 'squeak' when walking and mildly annoying otherwise they are perfect!

I think these are great all around summer shoes. They are a little stiff, but that's to be expected with new shoes (and my excessively old pair are so worn in and comfortable, it's not fair to compare the 2). I thought these might be a little short in terms of length but I imagine as they loosen up I won't feel the same. I am a solid 8 in most shoes. Pretty true to size. Love the fact that it's leather in the strap and footbed.

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.

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.

Compared to the other super comfy flip-flops I've been trying on, these stand out as stiff and slippery with a wide toe area. I normally wear a size 10.5 and I ordered an 11. They fit well so I'm thinking these might run a touch small. Returning due to lack of comfort compared to Cobian, Reef, Teva, Flojos.

I do not find these comfortable. The part that goes between my toes bothers me, and I am a veteran flip flop wearer. I like the height of the shoe and the width of the straps, but without the comfort to go with it, I would not recommend them.

They are a good, sturdy flip flop but not as snug or comfortable as others I've had. Seems like the straps are too generous and the sole is too firm.

I took these new flip flops to Europe and was a a little concerned about the break in factor but I wore them for several days and aside from a little soreness in the area between the toes the notch slips in to , they held up fine. Great first time Zappos experience too, easy to order and quick shipping!

I love these shoes. They were comfortable from the first wearing. I am very hard on shoes and have noticed that the strap does not hold my foot quite as snug but I think that's to be expected with leather.

I love these flip flops. Only thing. They run small... I had to order a 10 and I'm usually a 9. Very comfortable. Zappos is great... Love the free shipping and return policy!

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.

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!!
