Super comfortable "sandals". I originally ordered my normal size, but after receiving the first pair, they felt one size too small. The next size up was perfect. I wear them all the time now.

I think Sanuk deserves five stars for packaging and use of materials. Zappos deserves five stars as well. However, there were problems with these sandals, as far as I am concerned. The sandals look nicer on screen than in real life. The material has a strong tendency to bow inward, due to the way the seams are sewn. You can see a bit of that in the photos, but it is more prevalent than the pictures suggest. My biggest issue was entry inside of the sandals. The heels have no support and they just collapse when trying to slide in. However the heels are quite tall, so you need to jam your feet forward in order to use your finger like a shoe horn. Meanwhile, there is not a whole lot of play from the goring. I cannot see these sandals lasting very long when considering the distress caused by repeated entry.

Super comfy and versatile. Originally got these to wear on the weekends but found myself wearing to work as well. I get a lot of compliments on them.

My wife recommended the Sanuks. And she was right. I love them. I wear 8 1/2 EEE in regular shoes. So I ordered a 9 M and they fit like a glove. I get lots of compliments on this shoe. Highly recommended!

I am so glad that I finally purchased a pair of these. They are very comfortable, and even getting more so with wear. They look very cool too, and I get a lot of compliments on them. They are lightweight, and easy to throw on (without socks). These might not be the most appropriate wear for the workplace especially since they are intended to be worn without socks, but any opportunity to wear these, they are now my go to shoes.

Honestly, the most conformable shoe, no slipper, no sandal I think I ever had. Already worn them to a wedding, on the beach, at the pool and just hanging around.

Flat, comfortable, easy, and styling. I love these shoes. I originally tried a size bigger than what I usually wear; eventually settled in my usual size...they may run a bit on the small side, but I'd say, overall, they are true to size. Thanks Sanuk.

I was always skeptical of their, it's a sandal tagline, but these really are just like wearing sandals. Their perfect for the days where it's just a tad too cold for sandals, but still dry. They plenty of room for my toes to spread wide.

These are instantly comfortable out of the box (sack). I can't remember having a pair of shoes that felt this good this quickly. Very lightweight and look respectable with a pair of shorts (and without socks). I will definitely will be buying more of this brand.

Hands down, these are the best shoes on Earth. They will change your life. I now have five pairs of these shoes and wear them everywhere. To all the people who said this is "like a nice sandal" ...pshh. I wear these shoes with jeans, shorts, nice pants, pajamas, and have even worn them to work with scrubs. Everyone joked on me for wearing "house shoes" to work, but they were really just in awe of how awesome these shoes are, and all asked where they could get them. Five stars all day! I am a girl who wears size 8½ in mens, so I have a couple pairs in size 8 that are a bit snug, and a couple pairs in size 9 that are a bit roomy. I love them all.

Brands I'd also recommend: sanuks for life.

from Chicago

I owned these shoes for almost 5 years now - even before they became cool or popular. I lived in Orange County, CA and moved back home to Chicago. Everybody in CA thought I was crazy when I first got them, the Chicago approval was even more pronounced. Regardless, the shoes were awesome, comfortable, and went well with jeans or shorts. I personally like to step on the back and have a heelless shoe fit in shorts, but it's nice to pull up the back of the heel when you have to walk for a given amount of time or to go with jeans. I have washed them in heavy duty washers, used bleach solutions on them, run around and worked light construction jobs around the home in them, and have put them through above normal wear-and-tear, and they have held up. I've even seen other construction workers wear them on job sites for the comfort. I finally managed to put a hole in my right foot (dominant foot) big toe area. I think it's time to finally replace these shoes. I'll retire these to my garage slippers now. I usually am a size 9.5 in American work boots, and bought a size 10 in the Vagabond to fit. The fit is good, naturally wide. I have high arches but the shoe worked well.

Very comfortable. My husband wears them around the house and out. It is like wearing the best flip flop as a shoe - and getting away with wearing them to restaurants. Ordered a half size up as they are sold in whole sizes.

Undisputed king of all shoes. I've been wearing them every day for 5 years for all purposes. (2 pairs total). Eventually molds to the shape of your feet. Get a half size larger so your feet have room to expand as they throw the chains from the imprisonment of regular shoes.

These shoes are awesome! So far the durability is better than expected and considering very little if any arch support they are comfortable enough to wear all day long. I am going to buy a second pair in a different color this week!

from Northern Kentucky

A few years ago I wore soccer sandals anytime it was, despite the fact they looked pretty dorky with anything other than basketball shorts. My reasoning was my feet got hot easy, and I could never get used to flip-flops slapping against my feet (and I hate the thong between the toes, how can people stand it?). I had been wanting to get a new pair of sandals for a while, but could not find a style I liked. A few months ago a friend told me about Sanuk, so I checked them out. Turns out, the sidewalk surfers are exactly what I was looking for, a comfortable casual shoe you can just slip on and go in. They are very lightweight and comfortable, the sandal bottoms are easy on the feet and the canvas top conforms snugly to your foot (I wear mine without socks). My biggest concern was my feet being wide, but after a few excursions in them the canvas stretched out nicely. I highly recommend these to anyone who is looking for a good alternative to flip-flops or boat shoes. Also, Sanuk seems like a cool company, I would be happy to give them more business down the line.

I wear an 8½W (or EE) so I went with a size 9. They are so perfectly comfortable right off the bat. I also have a pair of these in the "got my back." Those fit just as well, but I find the Vegabonds closed back much more comfortable.

This sandal is great, very comfortable. I wish I would have gotten a brownish color just because when I wear them they look more like slippers.

I bought these for Father's Day. He had tried on Sanuk's in Key West but didn't want to spend the money. I was able to find them here for less and no shipping charge. He absolutely loves them and said it was the best gift ever. He liked them so much I purchased him another pair for his birthday in the Olive. He said they are like walking on air. I ordered his regular size 8 and there was nothing wrong with the fit. Enjoy!

Great for the beach or lounging around but I wore them all day walking around Bangkok and my feet were extremely sore for about a week after due to the non existent arch support and I'm a 20 something athletic male. Would definitely recommend for the casual use, just avoid any long distance walking in them.

One of the most comfortable shoes/sandals I've ever worn. I don't like flip flops and this was a great alternative. I had to get 1 size smaller than I usually wear though. But again Zappos pulled through and got me the new size within 2 business days! Great company!

This shoe is amazingly comfortable. There isn't any real arch support, but being canvas they will stretch to accommodate inserts. There is no real traction with these. I have almost slipped a few times in the rain, but it's likely more to my poor balance. I'm not sure about how long the soles will last, given the price, but I am extremely happy about a month into owning them.
