Great shoes! Very comfortable for walking...even walking all day. I wear an 8 or 8.5, and I had to order a size 9.

These are the best flip-flops! No one should ever wear flat flip-flops! It's horrible for you! And these are worth every penny! Trust me! I am a meticulous shopper & spending this much on a Flip-flop shoe made my breakfast come up...but I bought them to try them out & they're amazing! I have worn them for the past 4 years! On all vacations, in the ocean, in the rain, daily (I live in FL currently), in Europe while traveling, Thailand. I am a firm believer in quality over quantity. So you can buy 50 pairs of horrific shoes from the sale bin at Target, Old Navy or wherever horrible feeling flip-flops are sold, or you can buy this one amazing pair. And they guarantee the bottom! If it wears out, they repair it or replace it! Save your feet & buy these flip-flops! You're going to need your feet for a long time & they're they're the foundation for your entire body & posture! You wouldn't put a beautiful home on a crappy foundation, why put crappy shoes under your beautiful body?! And no, I do not own stock nor am I affiliated with Chaco's. I just appreciate quality & want good stuff to stay around so I can continue to purchase it in the future.

A huge fan: Chacos give great arch support and are one of the few flip flops I can wear. The color of these "Campfire" sandals was more muted than the picture led me to believe. All computers probably create a different color spectrum; when these arrived they were a more rust color than red. Very handsome, just not what I was expecting.

This is my second pair of Flips, and fourth pair of Chacos overall. They are perfect, as always - comfortable, durable, great support (especially for a sandal). I can walk around in them all day and my feet won't hurt. Other people can have those cheap flip-flops that wear out in a weekend - these practically last forever! The only reason I got a new pair is that I wanted a different color. My other pairs (including one that I've had for 6 years) are all still in great shape. One note: the sole on these feel the same as the ones that Chaco uses for their "sportier" styles (though they are not Vibram soles). Some of the more girly/fancy styles have a different sole and thus fit differently. I haven't liked the fit of some of the others I have tried on, including the Flip X, the Flippa, and the Locavore. If you don't find one that fits right away, keep trying - there's a pair made for you!

This is my third pair of EcoTreads and I love them! Living in Hawaii slippahs are about all we wear and these are the best! On top of that, I work on my feet all day and these give much better support than any local kine flip around. You cannot go wrong! I am a size 9½ and the size 10 is a perfect fit, so order up. My only request would be to have more color choices so I can buy more!

I love these shoes! I have always had problems with Plantar fasciitis in both of my feet, which means a lot of pain after walking with unsupportive shoes. The pain got worse when I got pregnant. I wore these shoes to a festival with a lot of walking involved and my feet felt wonderful! I love shopping on Zappos! You guys are so friendly and I feel like I'm one of your friends instead of just another customer. I love that! Thanks!

These are great flip-flops.The soft, Reef flip-flops used to make my feet ache. Eventually, I developed plantar fasciitis and had to stop wearing them. I tried several other brands and it resulted in the same thing. I then read that the Eco-tread design was approved by podiatrists, so gave these a try. I was concerned in the beginning. I did not consider them comfortable for several days. In retrospect, I believe my feet had to break into the flip-flops (not the other way around). They are now the most comfortable pair of flip-flips that I have ever owned. I can walk in them for extended periods and they have become my first selection of footwear, unless the occasion demands something else. I have recently purchased these for my wife. She did not have foot issues, but her last pair of Reefs wore out. Like me, she was not impressed, initially. After a week, she is in love with them.

Love these shoes! I generally don't wear this style of flip flop -- hurts between my toes. But the ribbon here is very soft. The soles are great for my foot problems, too (numb heel). Got them in black as well.

My first pair of Chacos and I really like them and recommend them. Flip flops are my favorite thing to wear and these are just up my alley. I have no arches so the arch support has been great.

I've had terrible plantar fasciitis for the past year. I finally ended up getting a cortisone shot to relieve the inflammation, but my podiatrist warned that I needed shoes with better support. He recommended several sandal brands since I commute to work on foot and find it oppressive to walk in close-toed shoes during the summer. After comparing several brands I opted for the Chaco Flip EcoTread, and I have no regrets. This sandal is durable and offers great arch support. I do wish the style was a little more attractive, but that's really my only complaint. I usually wear a size 8.5 and ordered an 8, as per other reviews. The strap on my right foot was a little snug at first, and cut into my skin. But it has loosened up and the 8 fits great.

Love the feel and fit of this sandal! It gives great support unlike most flip flops. I usually wear an 8.5, but ordered the 8 since they don't do half sizes, and they fit just perfect. I have a fairly narrow foot, but I could see that you would have problems with this sandal if you have wider feet.

A flip flop gal needing more support and these fit the bill. My first pair. Hope they last a long time because they were expensive! It took some time to get comfortable walking as they felt like I had to step flat footed instead of the natural rock of my foot. So far, quite comfortable. I have not walked any great distance at this point so I cannot comment on all day comfort.

They fit wonderful on my wide feet and I liked the look of them. The only downfall is the little bumps on the footbed. They feel weird on the bottom of my feet and if I know I'm going to be on my feet for an extended time I choose other flip flops because I haven't found them the most comfortable as of yet. A little disappointing due to the price I paid for them.

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

I have a herniated disc in my back and was looking for a flip flop with enough arch support that I could wear it for a few hours without ending up in excrutiating pain the next day. Well, this is definitely it. In fact, the arch support is so high that it's actually a little uncomfortable for me, but I haven't found anything better yet so I'm keeping them. Great for the pool, beach, or anywhere my shoes might get wet.

I second everyone's comments about the straps now being too large. I have had a pair of the EcoTread for at least four years and the old strap was a much better fit (and I have wide feet). I feel bad returning the shoes because this will be my third try (my size was originally not in stock). I have also had the Flip Vibe. The soles on those didn't hold up as long as my EcoTreads. Hopefully my old Chacos will hold up for the time being because I really love them.

Flips that Flop! For tha past several years now, I have not been able to find Chaco flips that do not flop... For some reason, the straps are being made very loose... and are not adjustable! Too bad. I used to love these, and use them as slippers and all purpose sandals for "hanging around the house"... No more!
