Worth every penny
on July 17, 2017
For anyone saying that these aren't authentic, or that they are cheaply made.. please look into the brand you are buying first.
These are 100% authentic Rainbow sandals. Anyone who has owned a pair knows that they will be uncomfortable for a short period until broken in. Rainbows are purposely made to fit snug at first and will eventually loosen up and form to fit your feet perfectly. Upon receiving them in the mail Wednesday, I wore them around the house for an hour or so and like others have said, wore them in the shower once to help the break in process move a little faster. I brought them to work on Friday to wear around the office and although they still weren't broken in, I had no blisters. On Saturday I wore them out to go walk & fishing with absolutely no discomfort. By Sunday they were broken in and were once again became.. THE MOST COMFORTABLE PAIR OF FLIP FLOPS I OWN. The leather and hemp WILL darken or appear shiny over your foot print and straps as you break them in. I personally like the espresso color most which is much darker than the picture shown in the description so make sure to look up the colors on Rainbows website before ordering so you receive the color expected.
As for the sizing, I recommend ordering your true size. I wear a 6.5-7 and ordered medium (6.5-7.5) and they fit perfect. They may be a bit more snug if you are a 7.5 but they will form. Width is average, not too narrow or too wide. I added pictures so you can see the fit... one with my camera flash and one without. The pictures shown is after 5 days of wear. Hope this helps!
