I almost bought these sandals several times over the past several years, and the glowing reviews finally lured me in. Unlike my past three pairs of flips, I won't be leaving these unattended on the floor for my English Bulldog to tear apart. I've only had them a few weeks, but have been wearing them everywhere and really really like 'em. While break-in was a little rough, the straps have formed to my feet and they are really comfortable. They look beach casual, yet provide a lot of support and grip, while staying glued to your feet. We will see how they last, but they seem really well built and so far so good. In fact, I just ordered a pair of Z2's.
