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!

I love these sandals! The only thing to keep in mind, like other reviews advised, is that they run small. I recommend 1/2-1 size larger than you wear.

First off I love Zappos. Their products as well as their customer service are second to none. Love the shoes. They run a little tight but nothing a little warm water while wearing them can't fix.

This has to be the most professional looking Sanuk out there. These make a great summer shoe to wear with pants or sockless with shorts. I've even worn them to the office, they are nice enough looking to pull it off. I'm on my 3rd pair of khaki vagabonds. My favorite pair of shoes of all that I've owned.

These shoes are great for the summer. They are comfortable and well vented. However, they run extremely small (for me it was 2 full sizes). For a casual, low-cost shoe I think that they are top notch. I switched to these from olukai's for the summer due to the vents on the sides. It basically feels like you are walking on flip-flops!

These shoes are fantastic! I have a wide foot and these fit great right out of the bag (they ship without a box; environmentally friendly, you know!). Look cool, too! Elastic gore helps with fit. Not a lot of arch support, but then I have a high arch. Soles are a little slippery at first. Buy 'em!

Bought these for my husband so he could complete his Sanuks rainbow. ;) Just as comfortable as all his other Sanuks. He wears a 9.5 in most shoes but a 10 in these. Color online is accurate.

My daughter told me about Sanuk; I had never heard about them, but their claim that they are always comfortable is true. I bought two different styles and love them both. I have neuropathy so I can only wear flat shoes due to a balance issue and these fit the bill perfectly.

Size runs very small. Usual size is 9, based on reviews, I ordered one size larger - still fits small. Had to order 2 sizes up. Otherwise, my son likes the shoes.
