Thank you for your feedback.
I wore them while marching around the Disney World parks for 3 days and my feet feel great!
I wear normal shoes during the day when I'm out and about, but I bought a 2nd pair here to wear as houseslippers.
I have paid a lot more for other flip flops and sandals that were not this comfortable.

    Ahhh, what a relief these flip flop sandals are to me right now! I'm 9 months pregnant and just had my plantar fascia rupture, so I'm taping my foot. One of my issues has been buying cheap flip flops for summer at the local big box stores and wearing them all summer long. Here's one thing I've learned in life recently: it is not worth it to buy cheap shoes!

    Feet are complex and we tend to abuse them. It's not until you have a painful injury that you realize how much better you should have taken care of your feet! I learned a hard lesson recently, where I usually spend less than $20 on a pair of flip flops and wear them all summer long, that you get what you pay for. Seriously.

    So after my bout with a plantar fasciitis injury, I asked some friends who are runners--and thus pamper their feet--which sandals were their favorites. I was finally ready to spend more for quality. Olukai was the favorite across the board, and the reviews on ALL their shoes seem to be so good, so I finally ended up with a pair of these Kulapa sandals on the way...

    They arrived nicely packaged by Amazon, inside a nice Olukai shoe box with tags attached. Just like buying them at the department store. The quality is impressive for a sandal, but here I usually buy super cheap flip flops so I guess these were bound to impress me. The underside of the straps that go against your skin is a nice soft fabric. The tread is great, but most important for me, the arch support is WONDERFUL and the material is so cushy! After years of abusing my feet, it's a treat to walk around in sandals like these. I will never go back to my cheapskate ways again when it comes to shoes. It's just not worth it. I didn't even know they made such quality flip flops until injuring myself...

    I have pain in the ball of my feet, back and knees if I don't wear flip flops or shoes with proper arch support. I've spent over $400 on orthotics for flip flops but that didn't work for me. Then I discovered Olu Kai flip flops, tried the Ohana, Amo and Kulapa Kai. Of these 3 the Kulapa Kai is the best for me. The straps on the Ohana are thick and tight although my feet aren't fat. The Amo sizing is bigger and don't fit properly, the top sole is made of suede or leather and not as soft and comfy as the Kulapa Kai. After wearing the Amo for 1 night my feet started to hurt. I'm back wearing my Kulapa Kai and now my feet are happy. I ordered 2 more pairs.

    I had been suffering from plantar fasciitis and each step I took caused me pain. A salesperson at Good Feet pointed these out to me. Almost immediately, the pain was gone. I wore them regularly for a month and never had the pain return. The angle of the foot bed takes a bit of getting used to but then it feels normal. I wear normal shoes during the day when I'm out and about, but I bought a 2nd pair here to wear as houseslippers. My feet have never felt better. They are worth every cent!

    Probably the most comfortable flip flop I've ever bought- really appreciate the super arch support.... I used to be a Reef girl, but I'm going to sick with OluKai. Fits true to size. Yes, they are pricey... but if you are like me and wear flip flops everyday in the summer I think it's worth it. One reviewer said your feet slide around when wet... I didn't find that to be the case any more than any other flip flop.

    I had very high hopes for this flip flop. I am a long-time Chaco wearer, and wanted to have a flip flop that was a bit dressier- but still good for beach and boating. I got the dressier part- with the thinner straps this flip flop looks nice with skirts. There is decent arch support, not quite as good as Chaco, but good. The problem is the foot bed is awful when it gets wet. It is spongy and advertised as great around water, but not so much. Even if I wear these out in the dewey grass in the morning, I have to let dry out before continuing to wear them. When they are wet my feet slip around and I lose footing. If the footbed had some grips or grooves they would be better.

    These are the second pair of olukai sandals I have owned. It does take 2-3 days to break them in. I have wider feet (~D width) and the B widths still fit fine. The toe strap just broke on my first pair (after 2 years), and for this reason I have purchased a second pair. I wear them everyday, both in and out of the house. As you wear these sandals, they compress and spread, but they hold their composition well. I would still be wearing my other pair in the toe strap was still intact. I would highly recommend these sandals: they provide great arch support, look great, and hold up extremely well under intense use.

    I read reviews and lots of people said it ran small so I wear 9 to 9.5 so I ordered a 10. They were a little wide and a little big. I do have a narrow foot so I will try the 9. They were super comfortable and I do recommend them
