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!

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 have been hunting all over for a shoe like this. There are similar looking ones out there but they're not as good of quality. These have aren't like the cheap OP brand from WalMart. These are very solid, well fitting, and nice looking. I'm order all the colors!

Yeah, so these damn shoes are amazing. I think they might run a tad small... I had to return and get one size up, but it was worth it. They are comfortable and great for light excursions outside the house. If you need to do any serious walking, put on some nice tennis shoes. I'll probably buy another pair. But before I do so I want to see how they hold up.

My husband bought the Wal-Mart version of these shoes a few years ago and ran them into the ground so I decided to get him the actual Sanuks. he loves them. We did have to return and go one size up. he is usually a 12 and we had to exchange for a 13. he has a wide foot and I haven't heard any complaints about comfort!

Love these! They are so stylish. Bought for both my boys age 10 and 7. Got a size larger than my sons feet measured at and they were tight for both of them to get on. Bought the next size up and they flipped and flopped when they walked. So stuck with just one size larger and am hopeful that they stretch as they wear them, Because they are so cute!!!!! Half sizes would be perfect!

A very comfortable shoe for lounging. Like sandals, there is no arch support. As other reviewers have written, buy one size larger than you normally wear.

Awesome shoe/sandal, great match with jeans. Extremely comfortable, and in some ways they are even more comfortable than flip flops. The only drawback is that even though they have the "portholes", if you are working or doing anything active, your feet will still sweat in them. They are great for just wearing around town, though. I have 3 different types of the sidewalk surfers now, this one is probably the best when it's warmer, and the most casual of the three. The Chiba style is my favorite, esp. in winter. SIZING: I went through a lot of returns figuring out that these stretch with wear. I got 10s, then 11s thinking they were too small, then back to 10s. Zappos was hassle free throughout. Order your true size and wear them a few days and they will stretch out. If you size up you will end up having them slip on your heel, which will eventually give you a sore.
