I've always had trouble with flip-flops. Crocs Athens are about the only flip-flop that I'd been able to wear without getting blisters, and let's be honest, Crocs aren't winning any beauty competitions. I once had a pair of Reefs that gave me blisters like something out of an Eli Roth movie. It wasn't pretty.That said, I took a chance and bought a pair of Vans La Costa. My brother-in-law has a dope pair of red/yellow checkered ones, and I simply couldn't resist. I've been wearing them consistently for a few weeks now, and they're pretty close to perfect. I wouldn't say that the foot bed is as cushy as the Crocs Athens, but then again, what is? Bottom line, they're comfy, stylish, unique, and reference the classic Vans checkerboard slip-on shoes. What more could you ask for?

I was so jazzed to find these sandals and they seemed like an elegant version of my favs as a kid. Unfortunately they feel really cheap.. The bumper wraps around and connects at the heel... and you can feel the shoddy joint through your heel each time you step. I will definitely be returning these. Try again Vans!

Absolutely love these! Super comfy right off the bat and good looking to boot. Only issue is that they do run small, so I would order a size bigger than usual. Gracias Vans!

I'd also recommend: Sanuk, Ocean Minded, Reef

La Costa - All around a really good flip flop. Good looking comfortable. One recommendation I have is to buy them a size to big. The rubber outer liner is not very comfortable on your heel.

I love these flip flops. They feel great and look good too. A little heavy though.

I listened to the other reviews and ordered a full size larger sandal than what I normally wear in Old Skools. To my surprise the sandals were still a full size to small so I had to send them back and get the next size larger. Like one review said initially they felt like I had an extra size of shoes in front of my toes but as they wore in they fit perfect now. Best sandals I have ever owned. Just for reference I wear a size 8 Old Skool and had to get a size 10 sandal before they would fit.
