These are my second pair. The first pair I wore every day (really, every day) for more than two years and I'd still be wearing them except the webbing has stretched a bit making them a tad loose. It's the prominent arch support that makes these flips so special I think as well as the excellent construction. I often walk miles in these puppies without the least strain.

I have worn these for the past 7 or 8 years. I used to really love them. This year they made the straps looser, thus making the shoe feel like it is going to slide right off. They have been bought out by Merrell and now they are making the shoes for people with bigger feet. Even the size 6. I am very disappointed as I am one of the many petite women in this country! Very disappointing. Same way with the full shoe with straps. Can't get them to adjust to my feet either. Guess you just have to have a large foot now to wear Chaco's!

I love, love, love my Chaco's! Bought a pair about 8 years ago to wear on the boat and on the beach. Still have them, and they are still in GREAT shape! Would highly recommend for fit, comfort and durability!

I bought the Fiesta Blue (very pretty) in 9 wide. My feet are 9 C-D. The width of the sole is perfect for that but the straps are too loose. I don't have chubby feet, just truly wide feet. I did keep them, because I needed some sandals and it is difficult to find any attractive shoe at all that fits me properly for width. But I don't wear them as often as I would otherwise because the fit of the straps really is too loose. Otherwise they seem to be a high quality sporty sandal with very comfortable shape to the footbed.

I have Plantar fasciitis and a very painful heel spur on the bottom of my heel. A doctor and friends recommended this brand. I wear a 9m in everything. This shoe was too narrow. It also had so much tread o the foot bed that it wasn't comfortable on the soles of my foot. The strap between the toes is made of canvas and is very thick. I have ordered a few other styles of Chacos in a wide with hoping they will fit because the arch support is really good. Remember, length is very accurate but this is a narrow flip flop. Also heavy! Good luck!

I absolutely LOVE these sandals! I have never had a flip flop with this much arch support. I wore these on vacation and even after walking for extended periods of time, I had no discomfort. This is my first pair of Chaco's however it will not be my last!

I normally wear a 6W so that's what I ordered. The footbed was fine; however, the straps are too loose and make the "Flip" too floppy. Sadly, they will be going back.

Love these "flip flops" - gives me the lightness of a flip flop with exceptional arch support and a thick barrier between my feet and the ground! I highly recommend these!

I am very happy with them and feel like they were well worth the price. I have only worn them a few times but they have a great arch support and I can see myself living in them this summer.

These flip-flops are great for wide feet and high step. However, if your feet are sensitive like mine you will find them uncomfortable. Too bad because they are the only flip-flops I found that fit my foot properly.

I have a very thin foot. I can keep the flip flop on but it is a little big. The arch isn't as high as other Chaco styles. But I love them and wear them all the time.

I bought the shoe for my daughter. The straps were a bit loose on her 13 year old foot. I loved them though but I wear an 8 so I am switching them to my size.

Love these. I have wide feet and really appreciate that these are offered in wide widths. Love the arch. Seem a bit overpriced for a flip, but it's hard to find flips that look good + come in wide widths + have arch.

These are still holding up after two seasons, but I just bought a second pair anyway. These are the only flip flops that don't give me heel spurs and foot pain after walking around on boardwalks and beaches. I can only wear wide widths, so I'm grateful to find women's sandals that work so well.

I live in warm weather country and flip-flops are pretty much my every day shoes. I have had a wide variety of flip flops over the years and these Chacos have been by far, the most comfortable and value for the money. Mine are three years old and just starting to show wear. I walk a lot with the dog so I know I have logged lots of miles in these. Will definitely replace my old ones with another pair. I might even be able to eke out one more summer with my old ones.

I can't say enough about these shoes. I lived in these while traveling overseas--walking, scampering and climbing a few boulders. When I got home, I still couldn't part with them. I love the simple black and wish they made the exact same in brown. They were comfortable and did not bother the sesamoid fracture on my foot. The grip is great on surface and at the bottom. The quality holds up well. I got the size 8 instead of my size 7.5, and they were perfect.

Great to slip on any time to protect and support your feet and back. My doctor recommended I break my habit of going barefoot all day and these make that easy.

Because of scorpions, stone floors and plantar fasciitis I have to wear shoes with arch support at all times. Chaco Flips work for me.

These flip flops are extremely comfortable. I can walk long distances without any discomfort. They are true to size and fit as if they are custom made. They are also very stylish.

I used to have these awesome flips 3 years ago but lost them in a trip. I'm going backpacking again and of course I thought of these! I read one of the first reviews and was surprised to read one that said that they are making the straps wider. I have super narrow feet, this is why I used to love these...because of the perfect grip. I ordered them anyways because I had to try them for myself...and Oh No! They are making them wider than before! This is such a shame! I had to return them, sadly. Not good Chacos...not good.

So bummed! I was really looking forward to these - cute color, great price! My old pair in pink is like 6 years old now and I wear them everywhere, have washed them many times and well, definitely needed replacing. But the straps are bigger or longer or something on these, which makes that horrible flap flap flap sound when you walk. I put my old ones on to see if I was just crazy but sure enough - the old ones are tighter (even after all these years and washings) and don't make that annoying sound. Again really bummed.

Been wearing this flip for over a year almost 24 hours a day except when I sleep of course, but the shoe is always next to my bed so I can put it on right away. It has been helping me heal my plantar fasciitis. I feel like this shoe has was made for my foot and can't believe I haven't tried it sooner. Only thing is that the sizing is off. The shoe I have been wearing is a 7 and when I ordered 7 again but different color it was too small. Ordered up to 8 and the new one fits.
