I love wearing flip flops but found my high arches to be a problem with cheap flip flops. I purchased my first pair of these about 10 years ago and haven't looked back. These sandals have enough arch support that I can wear them like any tennis shoe.
There are a few thing you should be aware of with these flip flops:
-Break in Period: When you first wear them they feel tight around the strap and there isn't too much arch support. After wearing them for about a week the straps loosen up and they mold to your foot.
-Traction: This particular pair of flip flops has almost no grip on a smooth wet floor. It isn't a deal killer but be aware if you frequent conditions like this. I didn't have this issue with the Mick Fanning reef sandals.
-Odor: For some reason my feet like to sweat. This sometimes results in odor that seems to stick with the flip flops. Soaking them in some water and baking soda overnight resolves this issue.
My 11's arrived and felt really tight compared to the pair I had tried on, but I wore them for an hour and they definitely loosened up a bit. Just to confirm, I went back to the local store and tried on a size 12. The 12 was too long and too loose, so 11 is my size. Maybe this will help another guy with my size foot.
Don't know how they will hold up over time, but right now they are slightly tight and comfortable.
These sandals are very comfortable and decently priced. It is always a gamble buying shoes or sandals-flip-flops online. I wear a 10 1/2 and ordered an 11. They fit perfectly with no room to spare. If I were to order them again I would order an 11 1/2. The heel of my foot does not overhang the sandal but it is very close. I would say my heel is exactly even with the back of the sandal. I wear a wide shoe more because of aged joints than necessarily a wide foot. There is no room to spare on the width either. I did not see any way to order a wider flip-flop from them though. The arch support seems very good and they were comfortable the first time I put them on. Initially they did not seem to be very grippy. They were kind of slippery on my linoleum floor. but after an hour or so of wearing them they started to grip the ground better. They are very lightweight, look good, and appear to be well made. All in all I would buy them again. Just note that you must order a full size bigger than your normal size, and they probably will not fit a person with a wide foot.
I'm going to try wearing them to see if they stretch or mold to my feet at all, but I'm not hopeful. I wasn't concerned about ordering footwear online as I previously had the exact same item and size, so I knew (or thought I did) that it would fit. I think from now I'll be purchasing my shoes at a brick and mortar store, just to be sure they actually fit my feet.
Edit/Update - After two weeks of wearing these around the house, they have stretched a bit and now fit my feet comfortably. It's strange as all previous pairs of these sandals fit right from the get go. I'm not sure if I just received a funky pair that needed to be broken in to fit my feet, but the good news is they now fit and are very comfortable (I end up giving them 4 out of 5 just because of how uncomfortable they were for the first week or two).
