This is my second pair of Sanuk Vagabonds and while I see many recommendations to purchase one size larger I would caution against doing so based on your use case. I followed this advice on my first pair, purchasing an 11 when I am typically a 10 - 10.5 and found that the cloth material of the sandal stretches quite a bit in the first days or weeks of wear. My first pair, while easy to slip on and off and were only comfortable in casual situations or short distances. In addition, over time as the material stretched they started to lose their shape and look oversized. For those of us that sometimes sneak these in with a pear of jeans to the office on Friday's, the oversized look was not preferred. With my second pair I went with a 10 and while a bit of a tight fit initially they have stretched out comfortably and look better overall in my opinion.

Comfortable as a flip flop, but with the versatility of a shoe. They breathe great, and if they get wet they dry quickly. Order a size up. My new fav kicks!

Super comfy sandal. Wish it breathed it bit better, but overall very happy and will purchase another pair when these wear out.

Love the shoes so far. Very, very comfortable. Feels true to size to me at least. I haven't had any issues with them rubbing blisters or anything. They are a bit warm though, even with the vent holes. I probably won't be wearing them June thru August here in the South, at least during the day. Love them though. Highly recommend.

This was my first ever online shoe purchase. I order a size 9 because I have a pair of Sanuk Pick Pockets in 9 and they are a good fit. The Vagabonds are a tad shorter and my toes touch the end. They are still comfortable shoes overall.

Got the Sanuk Vagabond today. Size is perfect and the fit is exactly what I'd expect from a sandal. Very comfortable and well made. I wore them out this afternoon and have slight arch fatigue. I'm not sure they'll be good on days when allot of walking is planned but it could be that my feet aren't used to the flat bottoms also. I'd buy em again. Well done Sanuk!

Very comfortable shoes, but I would not recommend getting them wet often. I wish they also had that odor protection inside the shoes a many shoes (many shoes with Vibram soles have this feature) because they stink up easily and require washing.

A fine shoe - I got my Sanuks like 24 hours after I ordered them-amazing. These shoes are incredibly comfortable but feel a little longer than the size 10 I ordered, yet feel too snug when the back heel is up, instead of worn down (which is how I like to wear them anyway). Also, the color wasn't as saturated and looked a little more faded than I expected. But I have to say Zappos delivered and these shoes are growing on me, and the compliments I get ain't too shabby.

Brands I'd also recommend: simple, birkenstocks

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.

Excellent comfort...BUT - I'm a runner, and this is a very comfortable shoe... Feels like you're walking on marshmallows that support your feet. I would have given this shoe a 5 star rating except for the fact that on my 5th time wearing them I sort of drug the front of the shoe across the carpet in my office. This ended up tearing the foam sole on the front of the shoe and relegating them to yard shoes. I can't wear them in public because I'd look like I dug these shoes out of a trash can. I'm very disheartened because I loved the shoe...I turned my daughters onto them, and numerous co-workers have purchased them. I'll wait and see how long theirs last.

These shoes look awesome, but after a few minutes they begin to sweat. They will sweet all day long, and you will have pruney sweaty feet. I cannot return because they are worn. They are way overpriced and poorly designed!

This was my first experience with Zappos. I purchased shoes for my son and purchased the wrong size. Went online for return postage, explained what I needed and the new pair arrived before I got a chance to return the first pair. Great service!

So impressed with Zappos! It seems like a blink of an eye between placing my order and receiving it! AMAZING! Plus I have always found the shoes I was looking for when hard to locate in department store. Love the Sanuk sandals I got for my husband! Great selection to choose from! ZAPPOS ROCKS!

Bought these for hubby as he showed interest in the brand. He's really hard on shoes and they lasted him about a year. He wore these pretty often. I'm getting ready to order him another one! His only complaint in the beginning was the size. He's an 11 all day long so that's what I ordered. They were way too snug so we ended up getting a 12. Fit way better and I'll order him a 12 from now on.

Bought these for my boyfriend. He wears a 10.5 but I had bought a 10. Needed to return for exchange for 11. No hassles at all on return. Great customer service!

I have had a pair of these for more than 5 years and just recently got this new one in a dark color. I remembered that the person I bought the first pair from said go a little small at first because they stretch out. I did and it felt a little tight for the first 2ish days. Now they fit like a dream! Love the shoes and they hold up like a champ.

My husband loves these. They're his second pair. He has a wider foot and they fit great. He wears them as an alternative to flip flops with shorts, pants or jeans. Casual, but very stylish.

I have been a long time Sanuk wearer and these were purchased to replace a loved 8 year-old pair that were wearing out. These Sanuks provide a wide toe box allowing one's toes to comfortably spread as nature intended. Unfortunately though, Sanuk is now with many other models building their footwear on a narrower last that crimps the toebox - Sanuk are you listening?

Like many others, these are one size smaller. So, I am a 10.5/11 and ordered a 12--perfect! I love these things. I will soon buy another color. They are light, airy, go with everything and so, so comfortable. Eyes on the side, I think, really help keep cool and dry. Tired of shoes making feet sweat. Love them!

Very comfortable sandals, like wearing clouds on your feet. They are a little hard to pull on initially but with time I found that to become less so. Also people might consider going a size up, as people have mentioned they run not necessarily smaller but if your feet are in the 1/2 size range going a size up might help.
