These are by far the best flip flops you can get. I have worn them for over 15 years (well, not the same pair, I usually get a new when ever I see new colors I like). I wear them hiking, and for any activity that involves walking. They are the most comfortable shoes I own. They have great cushion for your feet, and don't squish flat like the cheaper versions. They also have great arch support, almost unheard of in a flip flop or sandal. Your feet will thank you for getting these reefs. I always get them for my kids and grandkids Easter baskets, and my nieces text me to let me know which colors they'd like to see arrive for gifts....Uhh, am I going overboard? We love them, and the mens versions are just as great.
