Love these shoes. They are so cute and comfortable. I am glad I read the reviews and ordered a smaller size. I normally wear an 8, but the 7 fit perfectly.

Liked the shoe but had to return because of fit. Normally take size 8, but it was too large. Tried size 7 and it was too tight.

Exceptionally comfortable sandal! Stylish too! I spend a lot of time standing on my feet and walking, therefore comfortable, supportive shoes are a must for me! These fit the bill all the way around. I recommended them to a fellow worker and she now wears the same pair!

I ordered several slide like pairs in 7 and 8 since many reviews mentioned the straps to be too large. The straps were too large on all of the slide type styles with the exception of the large criss cross leather ones. What I don't get...if a lot of the reviews state that the straps are too large, why is this company still making them this way? What I don't get...why bother making a white or light colored shoe and then make the foot beds dark? Sometimes when you wear a light colored pant or skirt, you really don't want a shock of black. When one has foot issues it is so hard to find a well designed shoe that don't make you feel like you are wearing boxes on your feet. Dainty is never a word to be associated with comfort shoes. Fit flops almost gets it right, but misses with the ill fitting, unadjustable straps and dark foot beds that defeat the purpose of wearing a light color shoe, this shoe comes so close, but it is too loose in both sizes. Lastly, the thong type shoes are adorable, but the thong between the toes is just not comfortable and the company seems to have more of these than the slide. why not make more slides? The thick criss cross leather slides are insanely comfortable and actually look great. Can't they make in a light color? Please listen and make these changes because you have a great product that just needs to be refined. Thanks for at least one incredible cute shoe for warm weather that helps me with my many foot issues! Please listen and make these simple changes. Thanks.

They are beautiful and comfortable. The only issue for me is that the strap near the ankle is loose. This means the shoe is held in to place mainly by the strap near the toes. I wish FitFlop would make shoes in narrow also or else resort to velcro closings on more styles.

Stunning shoe and so comfortable, no need for "breaking in," it fit beautifully! I walked all over San Francisco in these shoes with no foot pain or blisters. I'd like the lighter colored pair, but it's out of stock.

I ordered three pairs of these because I ordered a pair last year and they are so comfortable. My friend found them on Amazon two weeks ago for less! I normally order from Amazon but they were not available when I checked a month ago. I am so mad. Since Amazon owns Zappos I thought they might do an adjustment. But they did not!

Love this sandal, but it's too big! I usually wear a 7 1/2 wide. Since these don't come in wide, I decided to order the 8, even though many purchasers said they run large. I should have listened to them! They are wide enough, but fall off my feet. I'm exchanging them for a 7, and can't wait to get them!

I have two other pairs of FitFlops Flare Slide shoe. Both are in silver and I just purchased the same style in black because I was going to New York City. While I was waiting at baggage claim for my luggage a woman approached me asking where I got the shoes. As I was telling her another woman overheard the conversation and also wanted to know the manufacturer and style of the shoe. Bottom line is they are extremely comfortable and can be worn all day. And they have a bit of flexibility to them. No need to break them in. I can't recommend them for traipsing around the streets of Manhattan non stop but they can go anywhere. Dress them up or wear as a casual shoe. If they made this style in more colors (say, bronze metallic - hint, hint FitFlop), I would definitely get them.

These sandals are expensive, but they are GOOD. I have plantar fasciitis and have to be careful about my footwear. These FitFlops fill the bill for both fashion and comfort. The straps provide a snug fit and good support around the entire foot. I normally wear an 8-1/2M or 9M, but I bought an 8 in these sandals, and they are perfect.

Bought these to wear after the ceremony at the reception of my son's wedding. They matched my M.O.G. dress perfectly, but unfortunately were just too big. I added pads where I could and made it through the day. I wish I had ordered them sooner to wear around the house first. They did stretch a bit right away but my feet are rather slim so even a small amount of stretch and this sandal being the slip on style without a back strap allows for my foot to walk out of the shoe. I had to be extremely careful when on the dance floor!

These shoes are favorites of mine! Can walk all day long in them! I then bought a black pair and the footbed was stiffer, not as cushy. The strap over the instep is too loose for me, but surprisingly it doesn't present a problem. Just love how cushy they are and that I can walk all day in them.

Several years ago I broke my left foot. I need a shoe that has an arch support so my toes do not go numb during the day. This is my favorite shoe in the world and I have tried all brands. Thank goodness I live in a warm climate where I get to wear them almost the whole year.

I'm a HUGE fan of fit flops, and this is my 6th pair. I have to say that this pair is my favorite. They're SO cute and comfy. I'm normally a 6.5 shoe, and the size 6 fits me perfectly.

These are so comfortable. They fit so well that I wore them for 12hours the next day. Feet and back we're fine. Bought another pair on the third day. I am going to try the full shoe next.

Just get them! I wore these, new, on vacation to Mexico. Walked everywhere without a care! Very comfortable even for "challenging" feet - bunions, plantar fasciitis, etc. Will now order more colors!

I absolutely love these shoes. They were perfect the first time I put them on. Not one of my toes got red from rubbing. The day after I got them I wore them to the garlic festival they got a little dusty but cleaned up with a wet wash cloth. You know I've actually gotten complements.

The strap over the toes is too narrow. It would be better if this strap was thick and the other strap over the instep was narrow.

I love this sandal! It looks dressy and is really comfortable. I have wide feet -- wear 6 WW. Initially they felt a little too narrow, but I have worn them for several hours at a time and felt comfortable. Taking them to Italy. Lightweight too, which is a plus for travel.
