These are much more comfortable than their leather Ho'opio counterpart, thanks to the fabric toe post. Compared to the Ohana or Kulapa Kai models, the Ho'opios are not as squishy in the footbed (which I don't mind), and they're narrower and cleaner. They're more dressy, less sporty. I think they're perfectly comfortable though - in some ways, I like the denser footbed more. I appreciate that the bottoms are just as grippy. Everyone said to order up, but I'm a 7.5 and I needed the 7. The 8 was too big. I'm a 7 in the Kulapa Kai as well, so the sizing seems consistent.

I typically wear a 7.5 and I purchased a size 8. I was concerned about spending so much money on a flip-flop but the comfort makes it completely worth the price. I wouldn’t go on a long walk with these because I prefer a more substantial shoe with a heel strap, but they are great for hanging around the house, dashing off to the pool and taking a relaxing stroll. Bonus: They have reduced my foot pain while doing chores around the house!

I love the look of this sandal and I love the navy blue color. However, it doesn't have the arch support that you might expect from OluKai.

I wear orthotics in all my sneakers so finding sandals with any arch support is difficult. I just learned that the Ho’opio is much lighter then my other Okukai sandal, so that’s a major plus! Olukai is the only brand I’ve found that I can wear for a good length of time before having to put on my sneakers. I bought them in black in size 7. They are simple but feminine. As long as the straps keep its support, I’ll keep buying them.

I've been wearing the Ohana style for a long time because for me they are the most comfortable sandal I can find. I decided to try the Ho'opio because they look a little less casual. I definitely like them but they don't have as much thickness in the sole, so a little less support. Still compared to other brands they are great and it's nice to have something a bit different in style. They seem to run consistent in size from one style to another. I wear an 8.5 in shoes and an 8 in these sandals because the toes can go father on a sandal than in shoes. The 9 was too big. Overall a great sandal!

Very cute, had to return. I am a solid 7.5 and ordered both a 7 and an 8, kept the 8. If in between sizes go up!

This is my first pair of Olukai so I wasn't sure what to expect; I usually wear Reef Rover Catch but was unable to find them in a brown color. Wow, these not only look good, but there are one of the most comfortable flip flops I've ever worn!

Bought for my fiance. Color and shoe were great, but they do not run small as others have noted. I would say, they run true to slightly big and a little wider than B. Unfortunately, i had to return them.

I have been a die-hard Reef (Fanning) fan for a very long time. They were the only flip flops out of the box that I could always count on. Never a blister, always comfortable, long lasting. That is, until now. I discovered Olukai while on vacation in Hawaii and they immediately replaced my Reefs. I was shocked at the difference in the footbed. The olukai were such a relief for my feet. It was like a huge sigh putting them on and I walked around in them all day without any problem. Straight out of the store. The only difference I noticed is that they are "flippier" when going down stairs. The Reefs felt more secure - but the comfort - it's worth it. Stocking up on them now and trying new styles I didn't find in the store.

Just awesome. Comfortable to wear right out of the box, no hot spots, spent the weekend with family and everybody wanted a pair (including husband). Don't order down a size: I'm 8.5/9, tried the 8 (too small) and the 9 fit perfectly. My foot is narrowish.

I have six pairs of Olukai sandals and I am ALWAYS a size 7, I ended up in a size 8 in these. The arch support is relatively non existent, but I bought these for the beach and they’re water resistant.

I have multiple pairs of OluKais, they are worth every penny, these are a little different than my others. The arch support isn't as supportive or pronounced as my others but they still have more than most flip flops. These are a little nicer looking on my foot than my others as they are slimmer in width overall. If you want these for super comfort and style I would recommend the Kulapa Kai!

These are pretty sturdy flip-flops that are true to size which for me is a problem because they do not come in half sizes. I went down a half size because I do not like flip-flops that are too large, however, I really need that half size difference. I will not be buying anymore of this brand for that reason. I do not think the flip-flops are worth the money anyway.

Bought these for my daughter and she loves them so much I bought them for my daughter-in-law! Neither have ever had a “good” pair of flip-flops... I’ve got them hooked for life I think! (I also have a pair in a slightly different style— best brand of sandals I’ve ever owned — and I’ve had a LOT of orthotic-type flip flops— my entire family owns a pair of these brand of shoes.

These fit excellent. These were purchased for my daughter to replace the exact same pair of OluKai sandals that our family dog ate. These are all my daughter and wife wear! Worth every penny.

This is the 2nd pair of OluKais I have given our daughter. After she wore out the first pair she asked for another to replace them. She wears them all year except when it’s snowing! They have the ease of a flip flop with actual support and loads of cushioning

These flip flops look like a traditional flip flop when you've got them on, but they have a secret that only you and your comfortable feet know--they cup your heel AND have built-in arch support! Plantar fasciitis be damned this Summer! Wore these for several hours yesterday at a graduation party and my feet felt good the entire time. I'm so happy to have found these and look forward to wearing them out and about all Summer long!

I have several of the Ho'opio sandals, and I keep coming back for different colors. I just purchased the pink/orange color and I love it! Like all the OluKai I've tried, the Ho'opio has pretty good arch support, especially for a flipflop; the leather is nice, giving it a little bit more of a dressy feel, again, especially for a flipflop. The other pairs I own have worn really well; 1 to 2 years for my sandals and they still look great and still have support.

This sandal is so cute and the footbed is so comfy. My only problem is that I have a wide foot, and the upper part of the sandal wouldn't stretch at all to support that. Other OluKai sandals fit me great, but this particular sandal does not. Mine had to go back.
