Blistered between my toes. While good looking, the thong here has major problems. It was thick and inflexible and I got blistered between my toes. I've worn other FitFlops without problem but these were bad.

Fantastic shoes! This is my 4th pair of Fit Flops, but my first Walkstar III pair. The top strap seemed to be very tight until broken in. Now they are are good fit, though if I have any swelling in my feet in the summer they may be too tight. Once broken in, the shoes are very comfortable and offer good support. I use them for everyday wear and for walking 1 1/2 to 2 miles for exercise.

I have two other pairs of Fitflops and they are my most comfortable flip flops. They wear really well too.

I bought these for my sister who had never worn FitFlops. She is now a believer. We both wear these more for comfort and support rather than toning. Truly the best shoes ever created!

I've been wearing nothing but FitFlops for more than a year. I developed plantar fasciitis, and my podiatrist said, "No More Flip Flops!" Living in almost perpetual summer, that was unacceptable, so I pressed him and he suggested two brands I could try. I now have 10 pair of FitFlops, and I'm so happy to now be able to buy them from Zappos, my favorite store! I appreciate the ease of buying and the super-fast delivery. It's even better than going to the mall. The shoes have a thick, cushioned base with great support for both the heel and arch. I own two pair of lace-up, leather walking shoes, the suede clogs and six pair of the sandals -- baby blue, orange, silver, two blacks and two whites. I wear them everywhere -- in the house (tile floors are hard on feet) and outside. The styles are varied enough that I can wear them with both casual and dressy clothes. I highly recommend these shoes, and Zappos as the best place to get them!

I have 5-6 different pairs of Fit Flops but these really hurt my feet (part that is between my toes). I have tried to wear them around the house trying to break them in but they still hurt. I will stick with other styles from now on. Love my other Fit Flops.

I love these sandals. they take about a week to break in and then you'll never want to take them off. Wore them at Disney for three days straight and my feet felt great. Highly recommend them. I usually wear between a 7 1/2 and 8 and I ordered a 7. Perfect fit!

These have a very comfortable footbed. The thong strap is soft, as is the strap on rest of shoes. There is very little break in time needed. Order half to a full size down.

I have a neuroma, plantar fasciitis and Achilles tendinitis in my left foot. Had been wearing a walking boot and going for physical therapy. Out of desperation I ordered two pair of the FitFlop Walksters. I put them on and walked around the house with absolutely no pain! My pain level in the heel had been about a 6 or 7! I am sold on these shoes...they really work if you are plagued with foot problems. I will be ordering more of these in the future. They are so comfortable and really support the foot. I did have a slight issue with rubbing on the toe next to the strap on the left foot, possibly because the neuroma makes for a slightly tighter fit on that foot. I wear these shoes exclusively. When I try to wear another shoe the pain in the heel returns. I believe the plantar fasciitis is improving because of these shoes. I even wear them in the house as slippers. I have had trouble with this foot for about 8 months and this is the first relief I have had. I usually wear a 7 1/2 but downsized to a 7 and they fit perfectly. Highly recommend them. I also bought a pair of New Balance athletic shoes and though they are much better than regular athletic shoes, they don't begin to compare with the FitFlops. Absolutely love them.

Really like these shoes - look good and are comfortable! I am a 7.5 or 8 and needed an 8 to accommodate my high arch. Still feels a little bit "off" and I'm hoping the top will stretch just a tiny bit so my foot fits more snugly on the shoe. But, even now, it's a good shoe for me.

Not good if you have high-ish arches. Try Privo by Clarks Longshore. Another benefit of Clarks is that they don't have their name so prominently displayed.

Love the shoe. Great support, even for a sandal. I usually buy flat sandals, but the small wedge is fine. Best of all, I love Zappos. I was ready to buy this shoe paying pricey shipping when I remembered Zappos has free, both way shipping. Delivery was fast.

I have heel spurs and this fit flop is so comfortable to wear. You can literally walk all day and not suffer from pain. They are the best for your feet. I have so many pretty sandals but always go for these without hesitation. Love them.

These FitFlops are extraordinary! From day one they have been the most comfortable sandals I've ever owned. There was no 'break in' period, they just fit! They are worth every penny & then some. Love the suede lining next to my feet. Super soft and luxurious feeling. I normally wear a 7 and based on other reviewers decided to get a 6. They fit like they were made for me. Grab some while they're here.

My post-winter feet were a bit sensitive between the toes when I first tried these but after a couple of days of increasing time, wearing them in the house, these shoes have become amazingly comfortable. I thought the slight wedge with a thong would be too uncomfortable, but the straps stabilize my foot and keep it from ramming too hard into the thong. Very comfortable shoe.

I love my new fitflops. I saw them on a young woman walking her child in Florida and I said that I liked her shoes. She told me what they were called and were I could purchase them. So I looked at Zappos and there they were. I happened to be in a store who carried them so I was able to try them on and then I was able to get the correct size. Did I mentioned that I had already sent for a larger size. I called Zappos and they sent out the correct size and I sent the others back and everything worked out really well on my credit card.

I love these except where thong joins top of sandal there is a sharp protrusion that juts out and rubs blisters on the inside top of both second toes.

OK, so many of the reviews for these said they ran large and to order a size smaller. Just order the normal size you wear. I wear a 7 and ordered them in 6 based on the reviews, but when they arrived, the tag on them said 4-6. My heels were practically hanging off the back. Thankfully Zappos is so awesome with returns! I reordered the correct size.

I had a pair before FitFlop was huge - fabric uppers - and loved them. These leather ones are for people with low arches. FitFlop says to order a size up, but I still can't get my foot all the way in. I have never thought my arches are high.

These are my very favorite sandals and for some reason FitFlops decided to stop carrying this style. I was talking to a salesperson at Nordstrom and she said to try Zappos since none of the stores carry it anymore. I was so excited to find them on Zappos - so I ordered 2 pair. They came in a timely manner and I am very happy.

I ordered the fitflop Tuesday and received them Wednesday. I love the overnight procedure but not happy about the all day sit home, but the fitflop feels soft and comfortable can't wait to put them on with a fresh pedicure to bring out the shoe. Zappos is the way to order and I like the return process as well - short and simple the way I love it. I would recommend all of my friends to buy the shoes for comfort and style. This is the perfect shoe for the summer.
