These are, by far, the best pair of flip-flops that I have ever owned. For a person w/ high arches, I struggle to find a sandal that feels/looks good. These are Top Notch in every aspect and also knowing that every time I buy a pair of Freewaters, they will be providing someone of less fortune clean drinking water for an entire year is awesome! Best of both worlds if you ask me... These will max your beach steez f'sho'! Sizing is true to typical charts. I wear a 9.5 - 10 shoe and a size 9 Freewaters is a perfect fit.
