I love the style, usually arch support footwear is ugly and has suede. These are lightweight, the sole is water proof, and they provide perfect support. The price is high.

First of all, I miss Zappos' free overnight shipping but the free shipping was still pretty fast. The length is slightly short. I am an 8½ to 9. The 9 fits but I do not have much extra room at the back of the foot. If you are concerned about the length I would size up. They seem wide. The width does not affect the comfort of the shoes for me but it does give a slightly sloppier look than I care for. The support is really good. These are my first orthotic type sandals that I have purchase so I cannot compare to other brands. The cork sole is very comfortable and is very light weight which really adds to the comfort of the shoes. The leather strap looks a little cheap to me. I was expecting something a little higher end looking for the price but I guess you are paying for the orthotic part. I am hoping after it is broken in more it looks a little nicer. Overall, I would purchase these again. They seem to be good for my plantar fasciitis.

I always wear Spenco thongs and slides because I have plantar fasciitis and I can't wear any flip-flops that don't have arch support. The Spenco thongs and slides provide good enough arch support that I don't feel any arch or heel pain after I wear them. These Crystal Thongs run at least a half size smaller than all of the other Spenco thongs and slides I own. I always buy a size 9, but when you hold up the size 9 Spenco Crystal Thongs to the size 9 Spenco canvas thongs and slides I already own, these are at least a half-inch shorter.

FYI, the "Crystal" descriptor is a bit of a misnomer, the little thingies are actually brass brads, or nailheads (decorative), but that's what i was hoping for rather than crystals, as I'm not a crystal kind of person. As for the shoe itself, I looked at the cork(ish)lining and thought of Birkenstocks, they do seem similar but i cant say they are actual cork. If anything, it is just a thin layer, it appears. These are Orthaheel, which Ive always wanted to try, but they fall just short of the arch support I was hoping for; I have pretty high arches. High arches may be why these felt "tight" for flipflops. Or I have fat feet. I have the longest toes, and the thong thingy does sit well back from the end of the footbed, a good thing. At first I thought they were going to be ridiculously long, then when I stood up, there was just about 1/4 to 1/2 inch off the tips of my toes. Overall, good design, well made, not as soft as I was hoping for, not as supportive arch-wise. Have to return them mostly b/c of the support issue, but also due to the tightness and not knowing of they'll stretch any. PS I ordered from Zappos b/c of free shipping both ways; had seen these on Q and frankly the return shipping can get rather crazy, especially if I want to try on 2 sizes and compare. As I am returning both pair, even though they were a little more at Z, the return shipping to Q would have been at least more for both pair (I'm guessing) YOU CAN'T BEAT ZAPPOS!
