Webbing is Looser than previous pairs

Reviewed by fungo from NorCal on Thursday, October 1, 2015
I purchased these to replace my old pair whose webbing had frayed badly after 8+yrs of daily wear. Although the soles tend to be heavy compared to other flips on the market these give fantastic arch support (comparable to Birkenstocks) and are very durable. I really like the pebbly textured footbed which provides grip so my foot doesn't slide around especially when wet. I feel as if the texturing gives a cushier almost massage like feel which I missed when I got a smooth finished styles.That's just my personal preferences and others might find it annoying. I also really like the new more natural graphic patterns they are offering on the webbing now versus just bright colors. My only complaint is that the fit is no longer snug on the webbing. It used to be you would have to break them in for a week or so during which they would be too tight but then would loosen or stretch (leather especially) to provide a really nice custom fit. This is no longer the case. I think because of all the people who didn't wear them for the break-in period and complained they began making them looser and ruined the product. My feet tend to be slightly narrow but this is mainly in the heel otherwise I wear a medium width though the front part of my foot runs wider.
