Summary

These sandals are great for a family vacation. I have had the ones with the pink straps for about 3 years now and they still look and feel great.

These flip flops look nice enough to wear out to dinner, they are comfortable enough to walk around in all day, and I can wear them into the water if we're at the beach. I wouldn't wear them out in the woods because I think that branches would probably scratch them. My husband has a pair and he cut the sole a little when he stubbed his toe on our granite steps.

I wouldn't be comfortable wearing them into a chlorine pool. They would probably be fine but I won't take the chance. I bet the pink straps would show any water stains.

The price seems high for flip-flops, but I'm glad I have them and will buy another pair when they wear out.

Pros

  • Comfortable for walking a lot
  • A nice look that can be dressed up or down
  • Versatile

Cons

  • I won't leave them by the public pool, I'm afraid someone will steal them!

Fit: I have somewhat low arches and the arches in these flip flops feel great.

Comfort: They didn't require a break-in period.  I've never experienced chaffing, they are pretty soft.  
Support: I had low expectations for them (they're flip flops) but they are more supportive than I thought they would be.

Water resistance: They do take a couple of hours to dry once they get wet but I've worn them into the campground shower and the lake and they've handled it well.

Traction: There is some grip in the sole which is nice.

Construction & Durability: Great.  Well made and worthy of the price tag.

Conditions: I have worn these flip flops on several vacations over the last 3 years and most nights and weekends during the summers.
