Take some getting used to...
on August 7, 2014
So.....I'm trying very hard to be patient and fall in love with these flip flops. I wear flip flops almost year round, despite living on the East Coast!! I felt like I needed something with more arch support but more elegant than Birkenstocks. I have these in black (I think) but thet are actually more of a dark grey...but I like them very much. Definitely can be dressed up or down. The stitching on the sole does take getting used to, but I think some of these other reviewers were a little over sensitive. I have had these four days now and wear them almost constantly. My calves did ache the first couple of days but now I'm used to the high arch. I'm now having trouble getting used to the strap....starting to rub and itch a bit. I have very sensitive skin but I think these are just growing pains and I expect to totally be used to them in a few more days. I definitely do NOT have a narrow foot, though I won't say it;s truly wide, and these fit me perfectly. There is a generous amount of shoe at the toe but I was told this is normal (I bought them at a running shoe store) and spoke to a very knowledgeable salesperson. I would definitely recommend these but advise that they will take some getting used to. But I think it's worth it.
