These things are so great! I can walk for hours in them and my feet are still fine. I remember before when I'd go on holiday with a $3 pair of flops thinking I'd just be near the beach or pool so didn't need an expensive pair of flops. Without fail I'd end up walking around the shops and restaurants with those $3 pair and my feet would kill at the end of the day. Well, not with these bad boys! They rock!
