Very comfortable shoe! Only complaint is that I am a 7 1/2 and I ordered the size 8 since only whole sizes are available. I feel like they are a little big/clunky; wish they were a half size smaller!

These flip flops are extremely well cushioned and comfortable for standing and walking. The only thing keeping me from giving 5 stars for comfort is the toe piece is a bit stiff and rubs for the first few wearings. The patent leather adds a bit of style to an otherwise less than stylish shoe.

When I first tried on these shoes, I felt a bit of a rub in a couple of places and thought that they might take some breaking in and I might end up with a few blisters, but that wasn't the case at all, they very quickly became the most comfortable shoes I have. I bought these because I have knee problems and I saw from other reviews other people who bought them also had knee problems. They do a great job of cushioning the impact of walking, especially on hard surfaces. I would highly recommend them. I fact I have been thinking of getting another pair in a different color.

This is my third pair of Fit Flops, obviously I'm a fan. Each time I have purchased and worn immediately with no problems and no blisters. These however ripped my feet to shreds. I have open wounds on both my big and second toes of each foot and my smaller left foot is blistered on the left instep. I wore them for about 10 blocks. They are the same size 8 as both previous pairs but I have trouble keeping them on my feet, they are tight across the foot and the material is very stiff. I would not recommend. These will go in the bin as I can not return a worn shoe. Very disappointing.

Very comfortable. I wear an 8 1/2 and got an 8. Fit was perfect. Had a little rubbing between the toes, but wore a band aid for a day and all is well. Not sure if they tone anything, but they can be worn anywhere.

These shoes are the best. You can not beat the comfort for the price. You can walk all day and not feel like you're damaging your feet and legs.They're also really cute. The black patent leather is fun and versatile.

Shoe G

from CA

This is my second pair of this particular style of Fitflops. My first pair I ordered a half size up and they turned out to be too big. My street shoe size is 6 1/2, but I usually wear 7 in sandals. The 6 works best in these, even with wide feet. I love the shoes and they do in fact give tone to the muscles. I wore the larger size for about two months and noticed right away muscle fatigue, which lasted the full two months and the tone in my quads is noticeably better, along with more strength. (The smaller size seems to fit very well and provides better support in the correct places.) It's probably a good idea to make sure and stretch the calf muscles after wearing these to avoid overuse injury, as crazy as it seems. :) A word of warning; if you are prone to foot problems it may be wise to check with an informed podiatrist about whether or not these are right for you. I began to get plantar fasciitis problems (having NEVER had them before) in my weaker, more rigid foot. I attributed the problem to the fact the larger size was not supportive enough, but it didn't show up until wearing them for two months, so you wouldn't necessarily know right off.

I just bought these in fuchsia/beige in hopes that they would rescue me from foot pain from walking in cheap sandals. Comfortable: Yes! Stylish: Maybe. The sole is very cushioned and supportive at the same time. The inside of the strap is lined with soft fabric. The thong slim and well-placed. The shoes run very large. I usually wear a 5.5-6. I bought them in a 5, and they fit perfectly at the heel. But the toe of the shoe is too wide and long for my foot. I have flat feet, and liked the fact that the strap held the sandal snugly to my foot. Of course for all this comfort, the main sacrifice is style. I dislike the prominent logo on certain other styles. That said, certain styles and colors look reasonably cute and feminine. The shoes look wide when viewed from above--why do you think the ads only show the side view? The slightly wedged sole provides a little extra height and gives the foot a nice profile. It's too soon to say how durable the shoes are, but they look and feel of better quality than your average foam flip flops. Great shoes for summer strolling. The comfort of a sneaker with the convenience of flip flops. I would recommend these if you're finicky about comfort, walk a lot, or have wide flat feet with long toes.

I love my FitFlop Walkstar III's they are great. No break in period comfortable from the time they arrive. I wear them to work, leisure, anywhere. They look good with pants, shorts, capris, and skirts. Would highly recommend these to all.

I was 9 months pregnant and could not find a comfy shoe to fit my puffy feet! I bought Fitflops and not only did they fit, they were really comfy and I got to feel like I was working out when I walked! Now my baby is 5 days old and I'm using my Fitflops to help get rid of my baby flab!

I got these 'Fitflops' yesterday, and I am loving them! I have chronic swelling in my ankle from repeated sprains, and flat feet to boot. This sandal has amazing arch support and shock absorption for my injured foot. My ankle actually feels better, as it seems to put my foot in the right position each time I step down because of the negative heel technology. I actually just went on a power walk in them, and my feet are happy happy happy! Highly recommended!

These fit flops provide great support. I didn't purchase them to help me get in shape! I wanted a flip flop that would help my tired feet. I wear tennis' all day and want to be able to wear sandals in the evenings. They took a few days to break in but after that they've been great. My feet don't hurt even after wearing them a full day. As usual, Zappos was wonderful. I live in a rural area. I love the fact that shoes come to my door in a quick manner. I now order my children's shoes on Zappos. I love this site!

These shoes gets more comfortable as you wear it! I put my on right out the box and will wear them as I do housework. My feet were a little sore from the newness, but you are suppose to wear these progressively. I think I over did it by wearing them for an hour right out the box and my toes and foot bed started to feel sore. Time will tell if I see a difference in fitness. I will wear them a bit today and more tomorrow.

These are great shoes! I have flat feet and need a more supportive flip flop for summer (my feet ache by the end of the day in regular flip flops) and these deliver. They do seem wide to me so I would say if you have a wide foot, they may work for you. I think they are stylish considering they are supportive shoes so they work for me for casual summer days at the beach or walking around the neighborhood, etc. Worth every penny!

I bought these for my Mom, and she loves them. I have a pair also but not this nice, but they are so comfortable like your walking on air. If you don't have a pair yet get some. If you have short toes buy the next size down.

May help to know that, since there are no half sizes with FitFlops, choosing the smaller size made for a near-perfect fit for me. Amazed that my Friday order arrived by postal service to my Hawaii home on Monday! Kudos to Zappos and USPS.

I got a small blister on one of my toes from where the thong part sat between my big toe and my other toes. It has healed up though and I've continued to wear these without any additional problems (or blisters). They are comfortable. I'm not sure if I am getting fit with them, but they are a comfy casual sandal.

When your feet hurt, everything else is out of sorts. It has an effect on everything you attempt to do. Well, I am sad to say that I had to return a pair of Nike shoes because they were not a proper fit. I decided to go another route due to the summer months arriving, so after a great deal of research, I settled on these Fitflops. Wow! I am impressed! As soon as I pulled them out of their wrapping and put them on my hurting feet, I started smiling! They are going to be my inside shoes until I get another pair. Yes, this is the start of a new relationship for my feet. p.s. Have you heard that Zappos is the best in customer service? I give them a rating of 10 for outstanding, beyond-the-stars hospitality. Thanks, Zappos, for all of your wonderful customer service reps, and these great Fitflops!

These are fantastic! I have two pairs and will buy more - no other flip flops compares to the support you get from these. Great for walking. If you normally wear a half size, get the half size down!

Comfy fit, good support. However, the patent leather has a bit of a rough edge on the thong piece between the toes and it rubs me the wrong way, literally. I\'m hoping it will dissipate with wear and am not bothering to return them. I also have excessively high arches and I have to really snuggle my foot in to fit and as I drive, the shoe slips off a little because of the regular-sized arch. Still, very comfortable and the sole gives a little so once I have the shoe positioned it\'s snug but comfortable.

While I loved the look and support of these FitFlops, the design led to terrible blisters on my second toes. In one day, I got blisters so bad that I couldn\'t where flip flops again for two weeks. I was very disappointed, as they were great in every other way.
