All the reviews I read before ordering a pair of these were correct. I love these shoes and have been wearing them non-stop. Super-comfy and cool looking with rolled jeans. I will be ordering in other colors. I listened to the others, went down one half size and they fit great.

Love these shoes! Big selling point for me was the fold-down back that allows you to wear them as slip-ons or loafers. We currently live in Japan, so I do a lot of slipping shoes on & off - these are perfect. I have wide feet and these are great for me.

I am not one to write reviews, but I have never been so happy with a pair of shoes! I LOVE everything about these, especially how soft and comfortable they are! I will have an extra pair in my office so I can work in total comfort. Thank you Olukai!

I love them! Great fit, super comfortable, and the material looks like it is very high-quality. I have bought from Olukai before and will continue to do so. Such good value.

I looked this shoe for about a week before I purchased it. When I read all the reviews, I knew I had to try this shoe, and I have not been disappointed. All the reviews are correct...this is a great shoe! I'm on my feet all day, so I look for comfortable, cute, sensible shoes. This is my fall go-to shoe; it's fabulous. I usually wear an 8 1/2, but I ordered the 8, and it fits perfectly. It's worth every penny!

Not the prettiest shoe around (smile) but they surely are comfortable! I love them and love the heel design whereby I can wear as a full shoe or fold the flap and wear as a mule. Supportive and the perfect casual shoe! I wear a size 9M and it fit just right ordering my usual size range.

Packed these for a trip to a lake and then to a nice hotel. They were all I needed. They fit great out of the box but then just get better all the time. My husband wears a similar pair and has for years. I never felt women were offered a shoe to wear casually that looked as good and did not hurt their feet until this pair.

Now that I have the shoes, they are the only shoes I want to wear. Socks or no socks it doesn't matter. I walk a lot and they are comfortable and cute for me. I am not a fancy person but I love the tiny little red stitches that say I am not dowdy! Oh Olakai! I want more of you!

These shoes are beyond comfortable. The soft leather feels like silk on your foot! I also find that many flats do not have enough cushion when you are doing a lot of walking or are on your feet all day, but these shoes do! To top it all off they look great, very stylish, not like granny shoes. I want them in every color.

Love Olukai! These are so cute and so comfy! I have 5 pairs of Olukai flip flops and these shoes are just as amazing and well constructed. I had ordered a 9 and 9.5. The 9.5 was great to wear with thin smartwool socks but ultimately I like the glove like fit of the 9s with my smartwool footie socks. The 9s feel super good barefoot or with the back folded down (they are designed to this) so I can use it as a slide.

These shoes are great! Mine feel like they are a half size smaller but they fit! I like to wear socks with closed toe shoes so if you are like me, get a half size up. Otherwise get thin socks to wear with these. They are comfortable and easy to get around in. Great casual shoes!

These are a great buy. Well made and comfortable. I was going to buy a pair of slippers, but got these instead as they serve the purpose and are versatile enough to go out of the house with them. The seams and other areas are well crafted and the footbed is extremely comfortable. I had a pair of Cole Haan driver shoes but they did not have an arch support which these do and they do not feel like I am walking on the floor.

I love this shoe, and have gotten MANY compliments. They fit like a glove, and conform a bit to your feet. I walked all over Puerto Rico on vacay wearing these- more comfy than my rainbow flip flops.

The most comfortable shoes ever! I love the Patagonia shoes that are similar but they seemed to have stopped making them so I thought I would try these. I am going to buy them in every color!

I bought these for my 18 year old diabetic daughter. They fit her like a glove. The leather is buttery soft. They have the perfect amount of cushioning to keep her feet from getting sore. She wears them all the time. Best shoes ever!

Great slip-on shoe for casual outings. I had to get a 1/2 size larger in this style (also bought a pair in suede) which fit perfectly. Put in my orthotic arch support and they now work for me.

Gorgeous shoes. I get complimented every time I wear them. Just don't expect any support. I wouldn't wear them if I had to walk too much. Of course, I am 43 yrs old. You get what you pay for and these are quality. No regrets.

I was so excited when I tried these shoes in a store but they did not have my size so ordered on Zappos but they were a half size too small. Zappos is out of my size so very disappointed. Will try again in a month to see if they have stock.

This is a great shoe. So comfortable and fits true to size. Can be worn barefoot or with a thin sock. I wear them as a slipper but can definitely be worn anytime. And the stitching is a nice detail. I would definitely recommend these.

I love these shoes! They are super comfy. I originally saw them in a store but they didn't have my size. I'm a size 6, and the store only had a 7. I loved them so much I tried on the 7's and they weren't really that big so I toyed with ordering the shoe in a 6 1/2 but then read the reviews and decided to just go with the 6. They were a teeny bit snug, but I figured since they were leather they would stretch a little and they did. Now they are perfect and I get lots of compliments on them. I'm actually thinking of getting a second pair. Only downside is they don't have a lot of arch support so I wouldn't wear them if you plan to do a lot of walking.

Definitely the most comfortable shoe I ever remember putting on my foot. If I remember correctly my phrasing to my husband was: "I'm absolutely in love with them. They feel like butter on my feet." Not only are they true to size, the insoles removable, and extremely comfortable, but the material on the inside of the shoe is amazingly soft. I was more than impressed, and I already loved OluKai sandals! Definitely worth it!

These are the most comfortable pair of shoes that have ever been on my feet. I like cute shoes and own a number of them, but frequently find myself wearing sneakers to work. My job is a professional setting where I'm on my feet alot and the sneakers just looked out of place, so I've been trying to find a pair of super comfortable flats to wear. These definitely are it! The insoles are insanely comfy and the materials the shoe is made from seem high quality. They are not the cutest shoes ever, but I think they'll be my go-tos from now on.

I am so bummed! I pretty much live in my Olukai flip flops all summer and had high hopes for these. They are so cute but way too wide, which I could have lived with, except that the goring rubs and pokes my feet. Not good. Back they go.
