Received these really fast, as usual. As they only come in whole sizes I ordered up but are way too large! Usually wear 7 1/2 and the leather ones usually fit in an 8, but these seemed like a 9! Guess I'll order a 7 and see how that works.

Strap felt harsh against my skin, material should be softer. Shoes felt too small on my average size foot.

I love these shoes! I usually can't wear flip flops because they have no support at all (I'm old, alright?). But these have enough support to make them very comfortable. The strap also comes far enough to the back of the shoe to keep them from "flopping" a lot. The label says, "built to get wet." I'm hoping that means they will eventually clean up well. I normally wear an 8 1/2, but I ordered these in a size 8 and they are perfect. Merrell's are great, and as usual, Zappos service is spectacular!

I agree with the comments of another customer. I absolutely loved these flip-flops in every way and was impressed by how the soles were really comfortable and followed the contour of the soles of my feet. But I must return them because my feet are wide and since the straps are not leather, they will not be able to stretch much. I have slightly thick feet, too. This reminds me of how it feels to almost find Mr. Right but then discovered that it was not meant to be!

So comfortable!! A slightly wider fit would have been nice but they will stretch some as I wear them. I would buy again!

This is my third pair of these thongs. The fit is great and they provide excellent support. I have difficulty finding comfortable shoes, so I happily recommend these thongs.

Merrell Avian is so light and comfortable that they have also become my night's slippers. Perfect! So perfect that I bought them in a different color choice also. Have so many Merrells that I think I could create a museum!

Brands I'd also recommend: Born, sometimes, but I stick almost exclusively to Merrells.

I wear these as "house shoes" around the house. They are super comfortable and easy to slide on. I also just ran them through the wash and they came out like new.

Merrells are always my go tos when it comes to casual south Florida footwear. I found these to be the usual great Merrell quality and like the fact that they will not get destroyed if they get wet. The fit and look are wonderful. I am typically an 8 to 8½ and the 8 was very good, maybe a little more generous than the typical Merrell 8.

Having problems with both feet, I am very fussy about the shoes I wear especially flip flops/sandals. I am able to walk easily in this shoe even on bumpy and uneven surfaces. My only complaint is that the band can be a little uncomfortable if my feet swell from the heat. Not sure if this is necessarily a flaw with the shoe, because making the strap softer will affect the support. Unless they can make the underside softer without affecting the sturdy strap.

Comfortable! Neutral enough to go with a lot of clothes, but also offers a pop of color for interest. I'm thinking of buying this flip-flop in another color. Wish it were offered in half-sizes and wider widths.

Great looking flip flop, good color. Width runs small and the top material has no give. If you are a medium and your foot swells in the summer heat, this shoe will be too tight.

I so wanted to love this flip flop! It's very light weight and has great support. Sadly, I have a really high instep, and the straps on this flip flop are extremely rigid with no give... they pushed down too hard on the top of my foot. These are going back. But, if you have slim feet, I think they would be great.

These sandals rubbed the top of my feet raw and caused blisters. Otherwise they are okay.

The shoe was very uncomfortable and not like the other Merrell sandals that I have. The pair I'm wearing now is great. The inside does not feel good on the bottom of your feet.

These flip flops are the most comfortable I have ever worn. They have great support also. I can wear these all day with no foot or leg pain, which is not the case with most flip flops. Worth the price.

These shoes are very comfortable with great arch support. I live in NYC and walk a ton and they are durable and holding up well. My only issue is that the grey color gets dirty from your feet pretty easily. I would go with the black.

My second pair of these! I live in California and am barefoot quite a bit so these offer great support while giving my toes fresh air. While they are a bit tight at first (I have wide feet), they quickly mold to my feet for a personal fit. First pair lasted quite some time, but started looking shabby. Would love to see some colors like lime green or a neon orange cause these go well with a tan.

From the moment I put these flip flops on I knew I had one of the best summer shoes yet. They fit perfect, can be worn in water, yet look stylish enough for a summer evening out.
