These are easily the most comfortable flip-flops I have ever owned. All total, I have 4 pairs, all in different colors. I love rocket dog flip-flops. I have purchased four more pair as gifts for family members and they all love them as well.

Not all that... WAY OVERPRICED and they squeak - I usually love Rocket Dog but this falls short. I bought the white and black and want to send them both back but I figured what could go wrong with a flip flop so through the boxes away. Well, my question was soon answered. They are not all that soft, and the rubber kind of grips the sole of the foot. They squeak (loud) with every step, and it also creates a subtle friction that is way uncomfortable, like warm and annoying. If you want THE BEST flip flop in the world, go with SANUK. I wish I had not wasted my money on these *overpriced* mediocre almosts. The strap out of cloth is soft but it's about the only okay thing on them.

Perfect sandal to just throw on and run out the door. Comfortable for hours of wear. I plan to buy more colors next summer.

These are by far the most comfortable flip flops I have ever worn. Excellent arch support for a flip flop. I had one pair that took me through five seasons, including a summer on Bali where I easily walked five miles a day in them. They are well cushioned, and the knit material of the top is super comfy on the tops of your feet. Regular flip flops bite into my skin and cause blisters. These are like wearing my favorite sneakers, possibly even more comfortable. Plus they can dress up a tiny bit.

These are the most comfortable flip flops ever made! I have several pairs in different colors and love them all. They are so cushiony that your arch feels very supported.

Anyone who has walked around in Mexico knows that the sidewalks are treacherous, and comfortable, airy shoes are a must. These flip flops are the best ever! After ordering these in black, and then pink, I just ordered 2 more pair in white and brown. So comfortable, and the large woven strap is actually quite flattering! They are also super-lightweight, which makes packing them no big deal. Thanks, Rocket Dog!

I am wearing these sandals right now, and have practically worn them every day for the last month. At first I wasn't sure about them. They seemed slightly wide and the thong was just a hair irritating between my toes. But I'm so glad I gave them a fair shot, after 3-4 days they were perfectly broken in and the sides actually conformed somewhat around my feet so they don't feel loose at all. They are super comfortable and even have good arch support. I can wear them to work and look professional, and also wear them in the dirt, dust, mud and woods. They don't stain or mark and are easy to clean up. I love them.

Great flip-flops. They are comfy, lightweight, last for 2 to 3 years. These are my favorites, as long as Rocketdog keeps making them. I will keep buying them.

Ordered these for walking around the streets of Mexico... My body can become very fatigued with subtle pain in my lower back and legs, after a full day of walking around on concrete, cobblestones, and marble here in Puerto Vallarta, depending on the shoes I'm wearing. These affordable flip flops are not only cute, but seem to absorb enough shock to keep me from being worn out and uncomfortable at the end of the day. Would definitely buy again, if they weren't out of my size :)

\r\n\r\n I have never owned a pair of Rocket Dog sandals\r\n til now. I have two pair of Rocket Dog shoes that are awesome. And the sandals are the same.\r\n They are probably the most comfortable shoe I have worn in quite awhile. In the summer when Im not at work I wear flip flops and I am going to get another pair of these flip flops soon. I am very satisfied with the products and service at Zappos.

These are awesome flip-flops. They are soft and cute. They provide great arch and heel support, look feminine casual, not like some of the flip-flops that are so wide or thick that they look manly. Good lateral support also and just enough cushioning, but not overly squishy. My feet sweat in some flip-flops and can slip side to side, but not in these. They provide better arch support than the Sanuks that I also tried in the same price range. I highly recommend these. They are much more hip looking then some brands. I did not want to take them off. The toe part is comfortable, too. They are also comfortable, and supportive in the heel. They are good for medium to wide, maybe not as good for anything wider then a d/e width.

Brands I'd also recommend: Spenco(supportive but wider), merrell, reef

I bought these at a local shoe store over three years ago. I have worn them almost every day since the purchase and they finally wore thin. The local shoe store that I originally bought them from no longer sold this style. Before I got really sad, I looked on Zappos. They had them to me the next day! Out of the hundreds of pairs of flip-flops that I have owned, these are by far my favorite and they are worth the extra money.

I am a Rocket Dog Sunset fanatic! I buy at least one pair (if not more) at the beginning of every summer. I have some very beautiful and high end priced shoes and what do I always slip on? My Rocket Dogs! They are just so darn comfortable! They have very good cushioning and not too flat. They have a nice arch and heel lift. Whenever I travel (even all over Europe), I can walk and explore all day and my feet and legs feel great. If you want casual sandals, you cannot go wrong with these. They are so inexpensive, and they hold up really well.

Not your typical flip flops! Finally, a strap that's just the right length - comfortable without being too long. They have some arch support, and the thickness gives your feet a little padding. Fast, stellar, Zappos customer service - nice!

I love these shoes. The straps are a perfect size, and they make the shoes feel secure on your foot. The foot bedding is wide and contoured to cradle your foot so you don’t feel like you’re sliding out of it. I am going to order more in different colors.

These sandals are very comfortable and run wide. I have wide feet and they fit great. They don’t need any break in period. I wore them all day without any problems. I would highly recommend trying them if you have trouble getting comfortable sandals. You will love them.
