I have 8 pairs of Fitflops & bought this new style in black Wednesday. This was delivered to me in Hawaii on Friday. I always reach for my Fitflops & find there is no break in time & comfort from the first wearing, in addition to their stylish appeal.

These are over priced and the fit is strange. I wish that I had returned them but I was influenced by other reviews. I wore them out and although they are comfortable they are not worth the price. I feel ugly when I wear them in public. I am using as slippers around the house. They are definitely not what I was searching for to use this summer but to each his own.

Love this shoe! And I am probably the pickiest person out there. I am a fashion designer, but I have issues with my feet, and this is one shoe that I actually can wear and look good. This shoe is by far the most fashionable in the entire Fit Flop line. If you are going to buy one, this is it. I have had so many compliments - several from my fellow fashion friends. And they all can't believe that it is a "comfort" shoe. I have several Fit Flops, and they all run a bit large and wide (but not uncomfortably so). This particular sandal has a leather upper (which makes it look more hip) and the orange strip give it a little twist, so it is not just your average boring black sandal. The bottom is made from Fit Flop's signature sole, which molds to your feet - they are an absolute dream to wear. I am actually more comfortable wear Fit Flops than I am my running shoes which have custom made orthotics. Buy these - you won't regret it. I wish they had these in a dark brown with the strip being in a pretty contrasting violet - I would buy them in a sec. I am not too fond of the lighter brown they offer in this style - they look too blah and not as updated as the black.

Love the style of these sandals. I wore fitflop shoes all winter so thought I'd try the sandals. Just getting used to the between the toe leather, but it's soft so I don't expect it to be a problem.

Comfortable summer shoe. I bought this shoe online after having bought previous pairs at a department store. Good quality shoes for sinner outfits. Very happy with purchase. I wear an 8.5 in other brands but had to order an 8 in fitflops.

Excellent flip flops! Comfortable and definitely stylish. I want to wear them everyday. I will be buying more in other colors. Beware they run large! I wear a 9 1/2 I ordered a 9 fit flop and had to return them for a size 8. I would appreciate half sizes.

I love fit flops but was disappointed with this style. Maybe these are cute on small feet, but on my large feet, they looked like faux-Birkenstocks. Clunky and utilitarian. Not as cute or hip as the orange would seem to indicate. I sent them straight back.

Fitflop comfort with a sandle style. Love these as much as my first pair bought five years ago. I had a bad ankle sprain a year ago that still bothers me. Fipflops are the only shoes I can wear that are truely comfortable.

Love this style! My FitFlop thongs exposed my ugly bunion so I only wear them around the house. I was very happy when I found the FitFlop Sling. It's comfortable and stylish. I wear a 9.5, but the size 9 fits perfectly. I highly recommend this shoe.

Love these! These are my first pair of FitFlops and they are awesome. So comfortable and squishy. The black leather makes them just dressy enough I can get away with them at work with black capris. Wasn't sure how I was going to like the little shot of orange, but it really sets it off and I love it.

I love this shoe. I found it when looking for a new Therashoe flip flop, which is now out of business. That was the most comfortable shoe ever, which I lived in during warm months. This shoe takes it to another level because it is just as comfortable, but more stylish and durable in leather.

Very comfortable. They have eye catching styling, which I've received many compliments on. I have never been able to wear thong style flip flops, as I find them extremely painful; however, these are really comfy, and I've had no problems with them. Also, I like the chunky style sole, which doesn't make you look like a idiot as most exercise/toning shoes do!

I was hoping these shoes would be the perfect replacement for my aging Reef flip-flops which are getting sad. But alas the FitFlop Sling just did not look good on me. I am rather short, not dumpy but not slender either and these shoes looked really clunky on me so back they go. I am disappointed but will try another FitFlop style that does not have the high cross-foot strap. I love Zappos for making it so easy.

Very nice fit and support but this shoe runs a size larger. The brown sole is not super fashionable and the sandal runs on wider than normal.

I got the mink color and I've received several compliments. I love how comfortable they are but they are a little clunky looking so if you want small, feminine sandals these may not be the ones. These are comfy, flip flops and they go well with a casual look. I'm in between sizes and I bought a size down and they fit great, the leather will stretch so go down a size if you're between sizes.

Like most FitFlops, these were very comfortable but for those with medium width, the straps were quite loose.

These shoes are perfect in every way except they bleed orange all over my feet. Comfy, supportive and while a little clunky, I would buy them again except the orange stripes make it really hard to wear other sandals.

I got the Fit Flop b/c I have Plantar Fasciitis and needed a supportive, casual sandal. I like them for a few hours but I wore them to the Kentucky Derby for 13 hours. My feet are very damaged, again. I thought I had them broken in, and I tried a pair on in a store to verify size and feel, but I shouldn't have pushed it that far. Crap!

I live in Fitflops, they are the only comfortable shoe for me due to my midfoot arthritis. I love the look these have and, of course, they are comfy. However, they do seem to run a bit wide for my foot. I still wear them because they still surpass any other sandal out there. I have almost every FitFlop sandal made!

Completely pleased upon arrival. However, the thong that goes between the toes is black, which is nice, but the black portion continues up underneath the overlapping strap and stops at the last minute. Unfortunately, after a few wears and stretching out the black now shows above the overlapping strap and looks ugly. I plan to try and exchange/return. Otherwise, very comfy and attractive. Color looks great next to skin elongating leg.

I have been a fan of fit flops for years but this one didn't work for me! The leather stretched out after only two weeks so now it feels very loose and just doesn't look good.

A little Muppet-y. Very comfortable. After a long day, the cushy sole is very comforting. Love the muscle-challenging wobble board. There will certainly be more Fitflops in my future!
