Product Description

The Carpe DM by Sanuk is a hybrid shoe/sandal combination featuring a shoe upper on a sandal bottom. This patent pending design combines the year-round style and protection of a shoe with the natural comfort of a sandal. The sandal bottom allows your foot to bend and flex the way nature designed you to walk. And the loose fitting upper allows your foot to spread so it can absorb shock naturally. They are the most comfortable shoes - I mean sandals - we've tried in years. The Carpe DM feature handmade textile upper with vamp applique strips, fraid edge detail, and paisley print textile liner.

Sanuk was started by surfers in southern California in the late '90s who were looking for footwear that reflected their lighthearted way of life. Founder Jeff Kelley was disappointed to see little selection in a category of footwear that had become his main shoe staple: the flip flop. Jeff had always been interested in footwear and with a little help from a few friends Sanuk was born. Years later, the Sanuk brand still delivers out of the ordinary, quality product to surf and specialty shops every season and has helped bring the flip-flop category from a summer only item to something worn all year.

    I saw the sidewalk surfers on a coworker and ordered them. after reading the reviews I ordered a size down. I usually wear a 8.5-9 and I have wide feet like barney rubble. I ordered an 8 and they slid right on perfectly. I wore them right away and love, love, love them. I had been having heel problems from flip flops but these are super comfy. I will be ordering another pair. Very happy.

    Great summer shoe- They are breathable enough to walk in hot weather with no socks. The unconstructed heel (no seams) means nothing rubs on the back of my foot. Washable in the machine, air dries overnight. Also comfy with thin socks.

    The outer fabric of these is heavy and stiff, but the fabric of lining the shoe is fairly soft. Sole is shock absorbing, but fairly think and flat, so not the best if you are looking for structured support.

    For a snug fit (they stretch) size down. I usually wear an 8, sometimes a 7.5, but prefer a 7 in Sanuk. I do have a pair of size 8 Sanuk Donna Hemps, which are very comfortable, but the larger size looks a little duck-footy. ChristineJW

    Just to start off, these run a little big. I am generally a size 9 and ordered a 9 from another store which offered free return shipping, thankfully, and had to send them back hoping to get a size 8 but they were out. Found them on Amazon for significantly less and took my chances with an 8 and they fit perfectly. When you first put them on your toes will feel a little cramped (not badly) but wear them for 15 minutes and they stretch to just the perfect size. These are so cute and REALLY comfy. Already looking at getting another pair in a different color, but I think these will likely remain my favorite. :)

    Soooo cute & comfy!!! I love them and have got so many compliments on them. I wear a size 9 1/2 but decided to get the 9 instead of going up a size, they do stretch some so it has worked out that they fit fine.

    These are my first pair of closed toed shoes I've had in years! I'm a flip flop kind of girl. I love the ease of slipping on something quickly. These go on easy and I can wear them with socks too. It was perfect for Florida's "winter" too! They are very comfy and I love the design.

    The greatest most comfy shoes around! I now have these in 3 colors - these are the only shoes I wear - next best thing to being barefoot! One tip I have if you have problems with no arch support - purchase the inexpensive removable inserts you can buy just about anywhere these days and it adds to the all day comfort.

    I originally purchased these shoes in a size 9 because I typically wear a 8 1/2 and didn't want them to be too tight, but I had to send them back and get the 8 which fits perfectly! I've worn them all over Ireland on our vacation! I've also worn them for 8 hours straight at work and still been comfortable. I will admit the lighter color I had ordere at first turned out to be lighter than I expected so when I called and arranged to send the 9's back for 8's I chose the darker version and I'm soo glad. I love the color and they don't show dirt at all and I think the lighter ones might have. Super easy return process and the ups guy actually walked up to the door with my new shoes with a label in his hand to send the other ones back and took care of the first package for me! Awesome!

    Nice shoes. They are very, very comfortable. The fabric gives as you're moving about and it's true what they say, it's like wearing no shoes at all. These are going to be the perfect shoes for our upcoming cruise for walking around in the different ports and to the beaches.
