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.

My husband loved these flip-flops. He was very hesitant to spend the money but after they came in he was sold. Comfortable, well-built, and will last a long time. He told me he has never had a flip-flop that had support and was surprised at how well these feel on his feet.

About five years ago, I found a pair of Teva Katavi Thongs in my size at a retail outdoors store. They quickly became my favorite summer footwear, and often doubled as slippers during the winter. So when they finally wore out this summer, I was worried that I would not be able to find a comparable replacement. There was a tag in one sandal with the model number, so at the suggestion of my daughter, I searched the Zappos site to see if they were still being made. Fortunately, they are! I have wide feet and I really appreciate the range of sizes and widths that Zappos carries. I ordered these Tevas and they arrived in about 5 days, as promised. They fit well and feel great, even better than the old pair. I m sure that some folks would consider these thongs very plain, but when you wear size 12, you don t really need to draw more attention to your feet. The soles have a modest tread that grips well on smooth surfaces (like stairs and ramps at the beach) even when wet, but not so much that you pick up every piece of gravel and bring it into the house. The design provides good support for my flat feet, so even after walking miles in these thongs, my feet don t hurt. The strap is soft on my foot, yet sturdy and wide enough so that the thong does not flop around when I walk. Overall, these thongs are great and Zappos makes it easy to place an order. Their return policy takes the worry out of on-line purchasing if you have a tough time finding the right size or width. I'll definitely be back soon looking at other types of shoes!

These are very comfortable with no break-in period. I'm used to Teva flip-flops so this time around I ordered a size 9, I normally wear 9 1/2 - 10 mens in sneakers, 9 in dress shoes and Converse, and since these Teva Katavi thongs don't come in half-sizes I ordered the 9. I did this because I had an older version of Teva Flip-Flops and the 10 became a bit too long for my foot since the fabric strap stretched a bit over time. This time the size is perfect with my heel and toes fitting directly within the footbed with very little excess space. Be aware that there is a protective ridge around the outer part of the sole, so if your foot is on the bigger side of half-sizes go to the next size up because you can't have your foot or toes on the edge of these flip-flops because of the ridge, which would make it hurt to stand or walk on (unlike flat soled flip-flops). They do make the "flop-flop" sound when you walk but that's to be expected. These also provide pretty good arch support, but they make my flat feet look fatter than they are.

I'd also recommend: Chacco, Harry's Of London

Great comfortable shoes. I suffer from back issues and the pads on these shoes feel like you're floating on a cloud. I love putting them on at night after a long day of work and go for a walk with the dog.

Bought for son with wide feet and painful fallen arches. Fit well and relieved pain immediately. Soft soles, moderate arch.
