I have had a couple pair of the yoga mat flip-flops prior to these. They are the most well made, comfortable, stylish flip-flops that I have ever worn. The older I get, the more about the comfort I am. The Sanuk Yoga Mat Primo, offers premium comfort, rugged style and durability. It is truly hard to wear other shoes after being spoiled to the comfort these offer. I cannot say enough good things about them, but if you are undecided, go for it.I promise you will not be disappointed in Sanuk.

Loved Sanuk flip flops for years, but this is my first Primo pair. They're hard. Not nearly as cushiony as the straight up Yoga Mat flipflop. I assumed it was a manufacturing glitch. Zappos was very nice about exchanging them for another pair, but the second pair is the same way. I figured if I wore them a few times, they would soften up. Didn't happen. I've worn them once, and will probably never wear them again. I emailed Sanuk directly to find out if this was a new manufacturing method for them... could we expect the next generation of Sanuks to be this way. They never responded. If you depend on the cushioned sole (I have plantar fasciitis, so I am a bit of a special case), don't get this Primo style.

The most comfortable flip flops ever. And worth every penny. I live in flip flops and have tried many brands including Merrell but these Sanuk flip flops are the all time comfiest from the minute I first tried them on. You will not be disappointed!

I have very sensitive feet and was on a long search for comfortable flip flops that would not hurt my feet after ten minutes of standing. I wanted to have ones that do not look chunky and would have a comfortable toe post. My feet are in heaven with these! Thank you Zappos for making this possible.

The Sanuk Yoga Mat Primos are just okay but not nearly as comfortable as the regular Yoga Mat flip flops and the Primo is more expensive. The additional cost must be because the part between the toes is leather. I hope it softens up because right now it is not comfortable between my toes. I prefer the original Yoga Mat flip flops, their comfort and their lower price. If I buy additional Sanuk flip flops, I will surely buy the Yoga Mats. Also, more color choices in the Yoga Mats.

I've been wanting a pair for a while, so happy I finally got them! These are the most comfortable shoes I have ever worn! They required no 'break-in' time, and the yoga mat footbed has the perfect amount of cushion and support. I have back problems and was worried these would not be good for all day wear as I walk several miles daily at my campus, I'm always on my feet at home too, but these have stayed comfortable and not caused me any back discomfort! I typically wear a 9, and that is what size I got, I have a somewhat wide foot so I was worried the straps would be too tight, but they fit perfectly in both size and width. I will definitely be buying more of these in the future!

I was looking for flip flops to walk around in all day, but that were cute too. These are it! I used them to walk around the city for hours and my knees did not hurt! They provide support. Get these!

I bought my first pair of Sanuk flip-flops eight years ago. Since then I always have at least three pairs each summer! They are so comfortable that you will not want to wear any other brand! They are not hard like a lot of flip-flops, yet they are supportive and it feels just like you would think of walking on a yoga mat, very comfortable! I have had several surgeries on my feet and have to wear shoes that give good support. These are so comfortable you that will not want to wear any other brand!

My second pair. Love them, super comfy everyday flip flops! Typically wear a 7.5, have both a 7 and 8 in Sanuk sandals, could easily fit either size depending on how you like them to fit.

I'm a 6-1/2 typically and selected the size 7 for my purchase and they fit perfectly. They don't offer much arch support but they feel amazing underfoot. No break-in time needed - straight out of the box and ready to go. I would love to buy this sandal in every color - if considering this selection, you will be happy.

Cushy goodness! This is the cut-above flip flop I wanted for summertime: sturdy, super comfortable, and zero toe chafe, even on the first day! I was in NYC and ended up wearing these out one night because we didn't have time to change. I assumed I'd start experiencing foot pain after walking around on them for a long time, but NO! The Sanuks stayed comfortable to the last. Plus, the little bit of elevation kept my feet clean versus the kind of flip-flop where you're at ground level. I typically wear an 8 1/2 and ordered a 9 in the Sanuks since they don't offer half sizes. This worked out perfectly: there's just a bit of extra shoe at the tip and rear.

Love these sandals! These are the only flip flops I've ever owned that require absolutely no break-in time. Not kidding! These arrived, I threw them on and took the dog for a three mile walk. The yoga mat bottoms are incredibly comfortable. The straps on this model are a little narrower, making them a bit "dressier" than the regular model. If you're looking for a casual "kickin' around" sandal, it's hard to go wrong with these.

The most comfortable flip flops! They do stretch out a bit after you've had them, so if they're ever so slightly snug at first, don't worry about it! The leather will give! And they seem very durable! Your foot will make and indentation on these, which usually happens with most flip flops. As long as these factors don't bother you, these are totally worth every penny!

Love these! I read about Sanuk sandals, and finally bought my first pair (well...two), I purchased these Yoga Mat Primos and the Campfire Story. The Yoga Mat Primos are cushy and fit perfectly. I'm normally a 7.5 or 8, and I got the 8, which I'm glad about because they fit just right (a little snug, which is how I like my flip flops). I can say, I'm a very happy customer, and am worried that my Sanuk addiction will become difficult to contain. Also, I love the color and the underlying detail. These sandals are both cute and comfortable!

I tend to walk a lot since I go to college and I wanted/needed comfy flip flops to wear around campus. I had the traditional Jesus shoes, but after wearing my new sanuk yoga mat primos, I haven't gone back. They are extremely comfortable and soft!

Traversed Boston without a single blister, soar spot or fatigue point. A weary West coast traveler having just conquered the big apple in walking shoes, I nervously took out my *brand new* pair of Sanuks as the "risk" of foot pain overrode the oppressive East coast summer heat. I won big time as I was cool, cute AND insanely comfortable - gamble well played. Note: Nervous at first that they may be a tad small or would rub, but know that both foot bed and strap materials mold quickly to your particular foot. I ordered usual size 7. My puppy liked them too and promptly ate these the night I came home and I'm doubling down on a second pair of identical Sanuks right now. These are a must have for any California girl or promenading traveler!

I have been looking for a comfortable flip flop all summer. I wanted it to be cute, casual, and easy to wear all day. I read reviews of dozens of sandals and looked at the number of stars then read what everyone said. I'm glad I purchased this flip flop! It's everything I wanted. I'm going to order some for my daughter-in-law and sisters. Thanks Zappos for a great product!

These are perfect. I usually have to wear leather flip-flops for their arch support, but have been interested in a pair that I could get wet without ruin - and these are it. They are supremely comfortable, they haven't rubbed in the slightest (they were a little tight in the beginning, but I tugged at the straps when I first tried them on and now they're awesome) and I can walk miles in them without being in pain.

I love these sandals! I initially wanted to try rainbows, but settled on these because of the lower price and great reviews. They're so comfortable I can walk in them all day without any problems whatsoever. There really is a big difference between these and the cheap flip flops I used to wear. They're soft, light, and they match almost everything (the straps are a tiny bit lighter brown than they appeared in the picture). I would absolutely buy them again.

Here in the land of sun and fun (Florida), flops prevail, and I have owned nearly every brand. This particular style of Sanuk flip-flop is the most comfortable I have EVER worn!! Rather than forcing the feet to adjust to the shoes, the unique yoga-mat material molds to the contours of the feet, which maximizes support and wearability. Due to an injury, I deal with chronic foot pain, and these are miracle shoes!! :) I urge every reader to 'treat yourself' and purchase these flops. (FYI - The dark brown color can be worn with all colors of clothing...even with black.) Welcome to Happy Feet!!

WOW! So comfy! If your hesitant because of the price I understand, but you will not be disappointed with the quality and level of comfort these rugged-sporty-stylish-everyday flip-flop will provide. True to size. Go for it and pamper yourself. You get what you pay for with these.

I purchased these about a month ago and have been wearing them almost every day. They have lived up to the hype - very cushiony and comfortable. The only thing I would change If I could (although it's certainly not a deal breaker) is the material on the inside of the strap because it's not nearly as soft as the rest of the shoe. (The leather on the outside is a nice touch.) And it took a few days for the straps to stretch a bit, as they were a little tight at first on my almost-wide width feet. I found them to be true to size/width, but I think that depends on preference. (They extend 1/4 inch beyond the back of my foot.) They don't look bulky, yet they are not at all flimsy. After wearing them in the rain, they still look and feel just like they did when they were new. Prior to purchasing the Sanuks I had tried Reefs (for the same price) and the Sanuks were much better in terms of both comfort and style.
