I have worn the crush for years and wanted something with a bit more height. These are awesome! The sole is harder than the crush so it won't squish down and loose height. They are true to size maybe a tiny bit small. Overall I think these are great and they seem like they will last several seasons.

Be warned! This is the third time that I am buying these shoe! If it is warm out and your feet get sweaty, you may slide off the heel and subsequently break the shoe. the toe or side strap will easily break away from the sole. Why am I buying these shoes for a third time? They are comfortable, stylistically versatile and cheap...

I normally wear a size 6 in these kind of shoes but after reading some of the reviews, I decided to get a 7. The 7 fits me perfectly and it accommodates my wide foot. These are otherwise fairly narrow and no way would a 6 fit me. It feels sturdy on my feet and beforehand, I was a little concerned about falling/sliding off the shoes, especially if my feet were to sweat but that hasn't been the case. I am 100% pleased with my rocket dogs!

Love these shoes! I'm a flip flop fanatic, and these are without a doubt the best I've worn.They're totally comfortable despite the height, and the multicolor stripes allows me to wear them with just about everything. Rocket Dog has a customer for life.

I love them. They're super comfy and stylish without looking like typical, cheap, flip-flops. I can easily wear them all day under all sorts of outfits. They can be dressy or casual, depending on the rest of the outfit!

I'm a true 9 and the 9 was perfect. Did not make my feet look big surprisingly. Multi color stripes are fun great for summer. Thanks Zappos for making my exchange stress free.

Can't wait for spring so that I can wear these cute shoes! I'm a huge Rocket Dog fan, and have been buying the Crush style for years (usually two pair per summer). May have to try a pair of Divers next.

Love the height of this shoe. However, the quality of the material and the design flaws of the Big Top are disappointing. I have broken 2 pairs after less than 5 wearings. It's a quality and design flaw on the part of Rocket Dog. The new material does not have the same make up as the old Jumb Surfs, which means lack of flexibility. The post rips up through the base of the shoe. And, after just two days of light use, it's easy to feel how the post is lifting from the base of the shoe. I bought 3 paris, thinking I would have them forever. Fail Rocket Dog. My old Jumbo Surfs, which are scary old are still in solid form.

I absolutely love the concept of these colorful flip flops. However, they are too high and you have to be careful with each step that you do not lose your balance and fall. The part between the toes is too long which makes it hard to stay on them. I so wish they were two inches lower. You can wear plain clothes and jazz them up simply by wearing these fun colored shoes.

I love these shoes, but unfortunately, the quality isn't great. I've had two pairs, and each pair broke within a month. I really love the style and the fit, but I can't keep buying them because they keep breaking.

Cute shoes. I bought a 9 but I am returning them for a 10, since they are a bit small. I would go a size up if you have a high instep and arch such as myself.

First of all thank you Zappos for surprising me with my package in a flash. I ordered the 8 (I am a true 9) because I wanted the arch to line up my narrow flat feet to avoid slop. I am returning them for the 9 as I am not happy with how my big toe falls off the side. The are cheaply constructed.

I normally wear an 8 and need a 7. I am experienced in heels and could possible keep them, except you can tell that the arch portion of the sandals doesnt quite line up so you have to be extra careful with the extra slop. I fear in the long run it will be at least a nuisance, at worst a trip and fall. Cute shoes though!

First of all, they came in a box with no labels and no receipt. The first day I put them on, the part that goes between your big toe and second toe, just came apart. I am very upset. I have ordered Rocket Dog many times and never had this problem. I took them to a shoemaker and he put liquid cement to try and fix it. That did not work. Now I am stuck with them after having only put them on once.
