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.

I loved the shoes, but the edge binding was so stiff that it created a sore place on my heel within minutes. I remedied the problem by rubbing the offending part of the binding with a nail file to soften it.

These are great! It feels like I'm wearing slippers outside! I'm really glad I went ahead and ordered the 8. I usually wear an 8.5 and was worried that they'd be too small, but nope! Worked fine! I think a 9 would've been awful. Love love Zappos for getting them to me so fast! These'll be great for summer when I don't want to wear sandals.

So comfortable! They definitely took a little breaking in because the heel is high and rubbed a little, but they are well worth it. Great shoes, and super cute too.

I adore these shoes, have them in a few colors. The flip flop sole is awesome, super comfy. They stretch a bit after wearing for a few days.

These shoes are great! They are very comfortable and super cute! I have really wide feet but the short-style still looks good. I would buy in more colors!

I love these shoes!! They are everything you described them to be... They fit in perfectly with my on-the-go Hawaiian lifestyle. I wear an 8 and they fit true to size. The sole is so comfy, could walk a mile in these shoes. Thank you Zappos for your service and fabulous shoes. Aloha!

This is the most comfortable shoe I have ever put on. Doesn't have any type of arch but didn't feel as though I had to "break them in" before I could actually wear them.

I loves these! I have been looking for something like these shoes for awhile. I wanted something to wear at cosmetology school that was comfortable, but didn't feel restricting. I live in flip flops in the summer and we have to have closed toed shoes at school, so these fit the bill perfectly. Right when I slipped my foot in, I knew I found my perfect shoe for school. Very comfortable, especially if you are used to flip flops.

I had a pair of Sanuk Donnas and I stopped wearing them because I didn't like how high the tongue was so I was really happy to see the Shortys. (: I'm a true 6.5 and after reading the reviews I decided to order a 6 but after I tried them on I felt like my toe was completely cramped and if I didn't size up I wouldn't be able to stand stretching them out. Aside from that they were super duper comfy. On sale, free shipping and returns. What more can you ask for? Zappos is awesome!

I should just go ahead and order another pair of these. Perfect for travel, walking, and everyday that you don't want to wear flip flops but want to feel just as free. (Which is everyday for me.) Keep in mind, there is no special support like a sneaker would have, but the sole is made of a foam that I would liken to kitchen sink mat foam. I find this kind of cushion healthier for my feet and balance, but others may feel it's too little.

A "smidge" narrower and a "smidge" shorter than the classic Sanuk loafers. I'm an 8.5 and the classics in the 8 fit perfect. These are a bit snugger but I'm sure will stretch a bit with wear. More feminine that the traditionals. Cute and cushy - no support but nice for casual wear.

I love these shoes, and I have received multiple compliments. I'm normally an 8 1/2 and I got an 8 in these. They seem flimsy for $48, but they're made well, are comfy, and look good.

I love these shoes! I'm so glad Sanuk came out with the red--they are so fun and look great with skirts, shorts or pants! They have the great comfort I expect from their shoes! I just wish they made their shoes in half sizes too since I'm a true 8 1/2. I ended up with the 8 because the 9 was slipping.

Excellent and super cute shoe. I'm a 7.5 and ordered down a size. The shoe definitely fits but I wonder if over time my big toe won't push a hole through the front. Either way, I love them and the color is adorable. It's blue with multi-color threading when you look closely.

These are great shoes! Incredibly comfortable. The fabric is also very attractive - with lots of subtle hues. The fit is good - and the fabric will likely give some so if you are on the edge of sizing up - you probably won't need to do that. As always Zappos was fast and efficient with delivery.

Super comfy! Nice casual or semi-casual work shoe! I wear a 7 1/2 and because of the lack of half sizes I went with a size 8, it's pretty big, but beats the alternative.

I love Sanuk. However, the quality has gone down? The side and front stitches have been toring off since the 2nd season on my feet. Mind you I am a typical New Yorker, walking around town and jumping on subway time to time. Anyway, my point is that if the bottom of the shoes haven't worn off, the stitches shouldn't.

I love these. They really do take the place of flip flops. Very casual and easy. I think I'm going to get a pair in a different color.

These are cute and very comfortable to wear for many hours at a time. My only concern is the price. When I got them I realized they truly are 'a sandal, not a shoe.' They are super light with basically the sole of a flip flop. I felt ridiculous for spending the amount of money on them that I did. However, I have a friend that lives in these and swears by them, and they are very well made as far as I can tell so I decided to keep them. I also bought some slip on Roxy's that are pretty comfortable and less expensive, so if it's more the look you are after, Roxy is a good brand with comparable options.

These are very light weight and comfortable! They were a bit narrow for me... or my feet are wider than normal. They are great for running errands. I will most likely buy another pair in a different color since I like the ones that I have.

The shoes are nice. The back is very stiff and could cause blisters on the back of the heel after a bit of wear, but it's nothing a good breaking in won't fix.
