We got these for my husband who is thin & athletic but has a broad foot (& thus needs a wide width in sneakers). These not only fit perfectly in length & width, but he's remarked several times about how comfortable they are; he's not usually that vocal. Worth the money!

I bought these in May 2010 but hardly wore them until this year. Maybe the weather in Guam wore them down but when I took them along on a recent trip to Hong Kong they fell apart at Hong Kong Disney. It was hot but they only lasted two days before they separated in the front. I tossed them in the hotel trash. I should have brought my Reefs.

Have had them for appox 2 months. Solid sandal, seems rugged. Still trying to get used to the "high" heel, it takes some getting used to. the cross strap is curling or rolling up along its edges after getting wet, but is not cutting into my skin yet, it just does not lay flat any more. One small one inch section of side or heel rubber is separating from the bed rubber, but it may just have been made that way (can't tell). Best thing... no stink yet.

This woman LOVES her men's Teva Katavi's for her plantar fasciitis as well as her wide foot! After extensive searching at shops, the internet, buying a ton of sandals of different sizes and brands from Zappos built for men and women I sent all but one pair back, a pair of Cascade's. I've done my research, read hours of reviews, tried lots of brands, models and sizes built for both gender. I ended up at a shop in Florida this spring [2014] buying these men's Teva Katavi Thongs and am VERY HAPPY. I bought them in a men's size 9, I would normally wear a women's 10, 10W or 11 depending on the fit in women's sandals. Being a woman with a larger as well as a wider foot I've embraced buying men's shoes/sandals when I find them the best fit, especially dealing with PF. I saw these Teva's on display and tried them on. At the same time, I also tried on some Olukai Ohana sandals as well as a few other brands. The Teva Katavi Thongs are much more comfortable and offer much more cushioning and I think they are slightly wider and sturdier than the Olukai's. I had previously owned a pair of Olukai Ohana's in men's and thus far am much happier with the Teva Katavi's. The Katavi's took a few days to strech the bands across the foot a bit, but... I didn't have any blisters and just a bit of red marks. I just switched out to a different pair of shoes/sandals and gradually [3-4 days] broke them in. Now I have walked miles in them and have been very comfortable. No PF flare ups - YAY! I use them around the house right now until the snowy and muddy mess of spring makes its way to grass. I will be looking to buy another pair. I have tried to research if there is a comparable pair in women's. I have not found any, that day at the shop in Florida I didn't have any luck in the women's section. The only other sandal that I have found that has worked for me in regards to fit in a women's thong or flip flop is the VIONIC with Orthaheel Technology Cascade which I'd bought when I ordered a ton of sandals to try from Zappos, all the others went back ;(. It is in a women's size 11. The width is a bit narrower than I'd like but they didn't cause any pink/red marks and didn't need any breaking in time. The Cascade's has some cushioning and arch support. When I compare the two different sandals on my feet the Cascades look a bit more refined and also make my foot look longer and the Teva Katavi's make my foot look a bit shorter and wider in them but they are much more cushioned as well as a better arch support as well. I'm ok with that! The Cascade is priced at least $$ higher on the Zappo's website than other sites. I prefer the Teva Katavi sandal to the Cascade. So, if you have a wider foot, want cushioning as well as arch support perhaps because of plantar faciitis you may want to consider the Teva Katavi no matter what gender you are. Like I said I LOVE MY TEVA KATAVI sandals!

I'd also recommend: Olukai Ohana or Cascade orthotic flip flop vibram outersole,

This is my second pair of these. The ultimate flip flop. Super comfortable dry and wet. Often wear for 12-16 hours at a time. Also great traction for the boat. Durable too, last pair went a little over a year of constant use.

I am going to be buying my third pair of these flip-flops this year. I bought my first pair when on vacation in Florida and wore them for two whole summers constantly until they almost had a hole in the bottom and one of the straps broke. They still were very good quality and, even for flip-flops, were worth the price. I normally do not really like wearing flip-flops because I do not ever find them to be very comfortable, but these were an exception. These are probably the most comfortable flip-flops that I have ever owned. I highly recommend them!

I'd also recommend: Keen, Merrell

Tevas are the only flip flops that actually have a good arch support. This is my third pair and won' t ever change brands again. I am a size 13, they fit true it size. Live them.
