- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I've had these for about 8 months and can honestly say they are the best, most comfortable flip flops I have ever worn. I am not a casual flip flopper. I hike, backpack and creek fish in flip flops and have put these through a full spring/summer of abuse - wearing them almost exclusively here in Montana. I love the arch support and stiffness of the midsole and the cork footbed gets better every step of the way while still remaining grippy when wet. The sole does not have a knobby tread, but as long as things aren't too muddy they work well on most surfaces. I typically blow through flips 1-2 times a year - mostly due to strap failure (usually while wading upstream). Aside from some scuffing of the sole due to my over-pronating, They show no signs of wear. The underside of the straps have a very comfortable and durable padded material that resists hotspots and chafing. I would not be surprised if I got 5 years out of these things with repeated summer abuse. I'm a size 12 and weigh 210 lbs and they feel true to size and I have not had issues with feeling that the straps are too tight like the other reviewer. Pull the trigger on these versatile slippers!
