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!

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!

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!

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 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).

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 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!

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 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.

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!

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.

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 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.

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.

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.

Brands I'd also recommend: I also purchased Vans flip flops they are awesome!!!
