I have to admit, that before I bought these sandals I was buying the cheapest foam flip flops I could get/find. I always had a pair and they lasted for a few months until the strap broke and I was left sandall-less again.
I finally caved and put some some money into a pair of shoes and I went with the brand I had heard the most about: Chaco. And I have to say, that I am not disappointed. These shoes fit my foot better than anything I had used so far. They take a little while to break into, but when you do, they are magic. My friends wear them but they can't understand because it is worn for my foot, but these sandals feel great.
And the quality of the strap and sole seem to be pretty solid as well. I hope to get many good uses out of these shoes in the future.
