Best shoes ever! Flip flops in disguise, fantastic to work in, for those of us who chose comfort first. If a half size, size down - they stretch.

The color on the website appears to be a darker rich red but they are actually a pale red! Sending them back.

These seem to run small, or maybe I am just in denial about what size my feet are! They grew during my last pregnancy and never returned to their original size. I had to send my size 10's back and the color I wanted wasn't available in 11, so I went with the red ones. I hope I like them as much as the grey ones. Some reviewers said that they back of their heels would get blisters, but the backs of the ones I got were soft. They are super cute, I just hope the next size up works for me.

Love these. I bought 3 pair total. I buy a whole size smaller so they stretch. This particular one is a charcoal gray and looks good with a lot of stuff. Looks so cute with the boyfriend style capris that are popular this summer.

I usually wear a 9.5 and I ordered a 10. It is a little small, however I feel like an 11 would be too darn big! All in all, a very comfortable shoe. Absolutely no arch support. I am happy with them regardless!

I already had 4 different styles/colors and added this new pair for spring. I wear them all Summer as an alternative to sandals. If you are a fan of this shoe you already know there is little support, similar to most sandals.

This shoe may not be on the cutting edge of style but it is such a comfortable fit! It feels good from first wearing, and has a nice casual look to it. I bought it for its unassuming style, but have had several compliments on it. Love the fit, and would buy it again!

I love these shoes! These are my first pair is sanuks. I was needing a pair of slip ons that had closed toes. These are very comfortable and I can wear all day with out my arches hurting. The color is probably more casual looking. But they do go with anything color wise. I ordered a size 8, which is what I normally wear and they fit perfect. I have narrower feet (but not so narrow I have to order special widths), they did stretch a little but not so much that they don't fit well. I wear these barefoot 90% of the time, but have worn with socks and still fit great. If your looking for a casual style but very comfy, get these shoes. (I ordered another pair in a dressier color).

Super cute, but wow WOW WOW were they big! I ordered a five, which usually fits me and there was literally a three inch gap between my heel and the back of the shoe. They don't appear to be marked wrong, I also ordered the Sanuk yoga flip flop and they were HUMONGOUS as well! Sadly, five is the smallest size Sanuk makes for women and the kids ones are too kid like for me. No Sanuks for me I guess :( boo. Size down on these!

I wear a size 10 but based on the reviews, I ordered a 9. Was a little short so I exchanged them for a 10. The 10 actually feels smaller in length than the 9 so I'm sending them back as well. I love the style but now I'm going to look for another style and hope for the best.

Great little shoe for vacationing, travel, beach - almost anything! They do run large by at least a half size so order down. I wear a 7.5 and had to buy the 7 to get a good fit. Even with that I have little heel slip on my right foot because my right foot is a tiny bit smaller than my left. I'm a big Sanuk fan!

I absolutely love these shoes! This is my second pair, in a different color. I am usually a flip-flop kind of gal but during the cold months it just seems ridiculous to wear flip -lops, until I found these. They are so comfortable and super easy to slip on and off. They run true to size. I wish that I could wear these to work. Oh, forgot to mention that my shipping was super fast. I ordered them Friday afternoon and got them Monday morning. I was so excited that I did not have to wait long.

I usually wear a 10. I got the 10 and they were too tight so I got the 11. They are too big but they don't fall off or anything. I like them a lot though. A 10.5 might have worked but they don't come in that size. I would probably buy more colors if the size was perfect.

I like Sanuk sandals. I have a pair in a size 8 but they are a bit large. I wasn't sure if these would fit based on feedback. I normally wear a 7.5 medium and this shoe is way too tight, so I am returning it for a size 8. I recommend going up a half size up from your normal size if you are in between sizes.

Love these comfortable casual shoes. Great to just slip on and go. Wear them all the time and will be great for travel. I usually wear an 8 1/2 and ordered the 8 and they felt very tight. Ordered the 9 and they are just right for me.

I thought these would be great slip-ons for work, but the seams were a little too casual. They look nicer in the pictures. Too bad because they are really comfortable!

My favorite shoes of all time! So comfortable, go with shorts, jeans, etc. and are extremely convenient! I love these. They last for a while too. Had my first pair for over 3 years before purchasing my second pair and that's because I literally wear them all the time (except for at work when I actually have to wear heels).

I have a hard time finding shoes I can wear for an extended period of time, but these have been very comfortable. I can go shopping in them all day and use them for vacations and walking around cities. I also love the light blue color! I ordered these in a full size smaller than normal and they fit great!

I freakin' love Sanuk shoes, and these may be my favorite pair yet. Every pair of them I own are so comfortable. Think soft flip-flop sole and cozy fabrics on top.

I can't say enough about these shoes. I originally bought them in brown and liked them so much, I bought the light blue as well. They slip on your feet very easily and they are so lightweight, it feels like you're practically wearing nothing. They are great for everyday shoes and are true to word when they say they absorb odors. My feet don't smell necessarily, but during hot days, these shoes work well to keep my feet dry. Overall, a great buy for everyday casual shoes.

I purchased these Shorty's in a size 8 as I normally wear a 7 1/2 but the 8's were huge! So I sent them back and got a 7 instead! They are perfect! I have narrow feet and these shoes aren't too wide. And most of all they are comfy! This is my first pair of Sanuk shoes but certainly not my last! I love Zappos' super fast shipping and returns! Makes it way too easy for me to buy shoes, at least that's what my husband says! I highly recommend these cute, comfy and casual shoes!

As my husband recently purchased a pair of Sanuk casual shoes and really likes them, I decided to try a pair. The Sanuk Shorty is a really cute shoe. I've had lots of compliments on them. I really like the red color. It's a sort of brick red and actually goes with many other colors. Looks especially cute with jeans. However, be forwarned, if you need a good arch support, these are not the shoes for you. I wore them for a couple of hours where I did a lot of standing and my legs and back were really hurting by the end of the day. Sanuks are sort of like flip flops with sides. I will only wear these shoes when I know I will be sitting a lotand just want to wear "cute" shoes. With no arch support, I'm not sure why this brand is so expensive. I bought the Shorty on sale, but it will be my only pair of Sanuk shoes.

These are a perfect late-summer/early autumn choice. The inner subtle plaid is a nice touch and the thickness and texture of the material is just right to keep my feet comfy and not too hot/cold. The fit is pretty true to size, but will stretch a little with time. Only complaint? The fabric frays and you end up having to tidy the strands up once a week. I definitely recommend these. Now if only Sanuk could develop a super sole that doesn't wear out after a few months or excessive city walking.

My feet are so happy to have discovered these awesome shoes, they're the most comfortable shoes ever! In fact, up until I bought my Sanuks, I was only comfortable with bare feet , flip-flops, or Muck Boots (a necessity living in Vermont).
