Sometimes New Isn't Always Better But Maybe Good Enough
on May 17, 2017
I bought this sandal as a replacement for an identical pair of FitFlops that I actually still own-which are now almost 10 years old. Yes, these sandals are super comfy and hold up well. I wear a 7 or 7.5 in my shoes and the 7 is true to size. I wear mine as walking shoes, slippers, for quick errands/shopping and yard shoes. The sequins add a touch of sparkle/shine while the foot bed and sole tend to look a bit sportier. I can easily dress these sandals up or down with athletic wear or cute shorts and tops. After having my first pair for so long, I was impressed at how well the sequins held up to wear and tear as they didn't fall off and they still lay flat and symmetrical. However, I am slightly disappointed in the overall product as compared to my first pair. The new ones seem to be made from a different material than my old pair. The foot bed feels more hard, less pliable and "plasticy" as compared to the softer, rubbery feel of the first pair. Additionally, the foot bed is not nearly as contoured to my foot...the old ones have more arch support, the toe tips angle slightly upwards and they had a deeper "ridge" or "groove" under the toes which all combined... made the shoe feel more supportive and comfortable. They are cute and I hope they break-in as easily as my last pair ...so I am crossing my fingers and keeping them.
