So many people told me Chaco is the way to go: comfort, wear, quality. They did not mention very heavy. Flipflops are supposed to be easy to walk in. Although the foot bed is very comfortable to stand in, walking is not as easy as the many lighter pairs I have had before these. Maybe I'll get used to them. Finish work and quality seem to be very good.

These flip-flops seem well made and sturdy. They seem to run exact to size or a bit on the small size. They fit tight, especially at first, but they seem to be loosening up after about a weeks worth of wear. They have a comfortable feel to them with the suede leather foot bed and leather upper straps. The upper straps come into the foot bed at a position that lays under my foot. I never noticed that with other flip-flops that I have had and it bothered me at first but now that the leather is loosing up it is not that big of a deal.
Good well-made flip-flops foe the price.

I am pleased to have yet another pair of Chacos. Fit is true to size and consistent with my other Chaco products and the color matches the picture. The Kolbs are comfortable and curiously light but appear to be durable. Time will tell, but I am confident. I still have my first pair of Chacos from '02--worn hard but holding up. FYI, looks like Chaco has eliminated boxes from all flips, so you won't receive a box in a box. Another reason to celebrate this company. In the meantime, I'm thankful for yet another peach of a deal from Sierra!

Ordered these for my husband with an extremely high instep and much pronation. I thought the extra support would be more comfortable for him. These definitely run small and they were exchanged for one size up. Return was a breeze. The larger size was just right. They were pretty comfortable right out of the box. Hope to get him in Chaco shoes next.

My husband has a narrower foot and high instep and these sandals are a perfect fit. Yes, they are tighter across the top than his previous pair of leather flip-flops, but he does not struggle to keep them on! They are a higher-end, dressier look (for a flip-flop sandal) and perfect for resort-wear. We think the bit of tightness will ease with use and he'd rather work with that than have a loose fit.

I wear flops virtually every day during the spring, summer and fall, so I tend to wear through them quickly. These are definitely heavier and more substantial than any other flop that I have owned. They took a few days to break in, but are now extremely comfortable. They also have plenty of arch support. As far as sizing goes, I am a 12B (narrow) and went with the size 12. They fit well in both width and length but are by no means large. That said, if you are in doubt, a half size, or have wide feet, I'd definitely go a size up on these. I initially purchased these in the fossil color and liked them so much that I ordered a pair in black as well.
