My doctor recommended these to wear around the house because of their excellent arch support. They are exactly what I needed.

I'll lead with the good...
I love the look of these sandals. My brother-in-law has had a pair of these for a few years, and every time I would see them, I wanted some for myself. Sadly, these sandals are beyond uncomfortable. The problem is that when the shoe flexes while walking, the hard, plastic strap digs down into the tops of the toes. It's like having someone trying to cut off your toes with a pair of plastic scissors with each step. After my first day of use, the tops of my toes were bright-red, and very irritated. I really hope these things break-in, before they completely sever my toes from my feet.
Warning: Material on underside of strap has changed! thin, black spandex like instead of soft, thick cotton like material. I've been buying this sandal since 1998, last pair I purchased was in 09'. These are my favorite sandals, and I don't wear any others. But, I recently decided to purchase a new pair, and go with the navy, switch it up after all these years with the black. Come to find out, it seems the soft, white fabric on the underside of the slide, is now some different, thin, black spandex like material. looks cheap as crap. and def does not make the sandal as comfortable. At first I thought Zappos had sent me a fake! (first order from Zappos) Called Adidas to confirm authenticity, which I was informed they switched up the material. I'm going to wear these and break them in, but am disappointing in Zappos for not having updated info on these shoes, and in Adidas for ruining a good thing. everything else feels the same and fits perfect.
What can I say? These are wonderful. Comfortable and they last forever. My last pair (which I cannot throw out...so I use in the yard) are about 10 years old. Sharp, stylish (in a classic soccer sort of way) and versatile. Our office manager (law office) even wears hers to work. I concur.
Zappos is the best online company I have ever done business with. I ordered two shoes and sent one back, receiving a very quick refund. I have had this style before, but was unable to find them in my area. I received a great small sandal with a great sole support. I cannot say enough. This is a wonderful shoe even if it is not a fashion statement.
Got these for my husband. He absolutely loves them. They're so comfortable, great for around the house. Fast shipping - Zappos upgraded my shipping to express so I got the following evening. Thanks Zappos!
I had these shoes for years and had been unsuccessful at trying to find replacements when they finally wore out. Yay Zappos! They had them! I prefer this style over thongs. Better arch support and they last forever! Thanks Zappos.
The best slide I've ever owned! I've worn these for over a year now (a new personal record) and they've been through a lot with me, from Chicago to California, and they've barely aged at all. I've worn them since the summer of my junior year of high school, and now I'm taking them to college. The only possible con is that the style might not be quite as attractive as some slides, but I think I'm a stylish fresh G and I still wear these. True to size: ordered 11's because I wear 11's, and as soon as I tried these slides on I knew they fit perfectly.
I've worn these year round for at least 15 years. They are the most comfortable, forming fitting slider anywhere. I have nerve damage to my feet due to diabetes effects, and these minimize the uncomfortable feeling in my feet.
Finally, a slipper that fits that my husband likes! I'm going to be ordering another pair for him to have in reserve, since we had such difficulties finding something that worked for him. Great slide! Zappos is so fantastic, with their customer service, shipping, patience with us (LOL), everything! I love Zappos!
