Absolutely comfy. I have flat feet and don't even need my inserts when I wear these. Love.

I was so disappointed with these. My shoe size is generally a 7.5, so I ordered both the 7 and 8 in the Athena. I already own Sanuk flip flops (size 8), so I was expecting the same comfortable feel. Instead, my big toe kept catching on the inside of the shoe's hefty front seam. They were big enough -- that wasn't the problem -- it was just that the seam sort of hung down into the shoe. Loved how they looked. Hated how they felt. Both sizes returned. Bummer.

I love these shoes. I hate flip-flops and am always looking for light weight summer casual shoes. These are fantastic and I get so many compliments on them

The sizing was a little off on the left shoe - like maybe it had been tried on by someone with a larger foot who may have stretched it out. It would be easy to do so with the very thin fabric. Since the right shoe fit and I was too lazy to return them, I decided to keep this pair. They are lazy-day shoes that I know I will enjoy.

When I first received these, they did feel a little tight. But thinking that they will probably stretch, I kept them and gave them a try. They fit perfect after I wore them a time or two. I am in love w/ these shoes. Very comfy and stylish! I usually wear a size 7 or 7.5 in most shoes, and I did get these in a 7. Don't go up a size or you will have them flopping off feet once they break in and stretch. Highly recommend these shoes! Love, love, love them!

Great shoes! I'm a flip flop minded person, but these are great shoes when it's too cold for flip flops. Can wear with or without socks. Looks great with shorts, capri's and pants.

I love these comfy shoes! I would wear them all the time if I could! I might order a size smaller next time and I will definitely be ordering another pair! Zappos is awesome!

I really love these Sanucks. They are super comfortable to walk in and look great. I usually wear a 7 1/2 so I ordered a 7 for these and they fit perfectly. My fit are a tiny bit wide so I just wish they were a little less snug or had a wide option. Perhaps they will stretch out a bit in time.

If you want to wear flip flops year round, these are the shoes for you. They have the same comfort and support as a flip flop, but they cover your feet so your toes don't get cold in the winter. I wear these shoes all the time for lounging around and running errands. The only thing I disklike about them is the "lip" formed by the sole and the fabric top... I sometimes trip over this.

Love my other pairs of Sanuk sandals and shoes but I dislike this pair. I wear an 8 1/2 and ordered both an 8 and 9 in these shoes. Size 8 were way too tight and 9 were way too big. Returned both. Wish they would carry half sizes.

As another customer stated, I love the look but hate the feel of these shoes. I own another pair of Sanuk's which I absolutely love and fit perfectly. I ordered the same size (7) in these, and was disappointed to find they do not fit at all. They feel at least a size too small. They also look more like a dark denim color vs black to me. Sorry to have to give these a bad review.
