Thank you for your feedback.
I wear them every day after work and on the weekends and for a shoe that is supposed to last even if you get it wet.
He has been wearing the first pair for years and they are still in excellent shape.
Comfort and fit go to the Sperry as well as looks - a bit more formal for a flip flop with the leather type straps.

Product Description

Santa Cruz Thongs...Superior Sandals!

This trendy thong sandal includes contrast colored stitching, laced side details with logo metal eyelets, and imprinted "Sperry Topsiders" logo detail. Shock absorbing midsole maximizes under-foot comfort. Easy to care for and stain resistant.

    Sperry Top-Sider Mens Santa Cruz Thongs feature:
  • Full grain, oil tanned leather uppers
  • Neoprene linings for added comfort around the foot
  • Contoured molded EVA midsole for under-foot comfort
  • Non-marking rubber outsole with Wave-Siping

What’s better for a summer wardrobe than a great pair of slip-on sandals that you can put on as you're running out the door? These thongs from Sperry are shaped to fit the foot with ultimate comfort. The upper detailing is reminiscent of a classic boat shoe- setting these sandals apart from your standard flip-flop.

    I work on the water & for the past decade, these thongs have been my shoe of choice, but over the past couple of years I have noticed quality of construction declining. Whereas I could usually get 8 or so months of wear out of them before the toe leather snapped, the last three pairs I've owned have all lasted only a matter of weeks before the side snaps. Because I travel a great deal,I usually buy 4 pairs at a time once a year. After my recent discovery of the Colombia Tango Thong, which actually comes in a size 15, & is very well made & extremely comfortable, I can happily say that I doubt I'll ever buy another pair of Sperrys again!

    By far, the best things I ever put on my feet. Bought my first pair over four years ago and my cat immediately decided they were the enemy. He left some pretty deep tooth marks on the side of the sole. No big deal, I thought, because like most thong sandals they probably won't last that long. Four years later, I was still explaining why "those sandals you wear constantly" had feline inflicted battle wounds.

    If those sandals were a truck, they would have made it 750,000 miles before crumping. Did I forget to mention they are comfortable? Ohhhh, yeah. Bottom line - buy them, you'll like them.

    PS - I have a new, much more sane cat who is living with my new pair of Sperry sandals in peace. Now if he would just quit sharpening his claws on my leather furniture...

    I bought a pair of these sandals 3 summers ago and I must say they are best sandals I've ever owned. They are very durable and the only reason i'm buying a new pair is because my dog turned my others into a chew toy. For those of you who have sweaty feet, they are perfect. There is no cloth to absorb the moisture and make them stink like other sandals with the cushy insole. I would recommend buying one size larger than your regular sneaker size. They do tend to run a little on the small side.

    So I reviewed comments on several products looking for some good looking and more importantly - comfortable and durable flip flops. I purchased the Sperry Topsider Santa Cruz, the Teva Katavi, and the Columbia PFG Techsun Flip III Sandal (based on the reviews I read - these 3 seem to come up quite often). I would rate the Sperry number 1, Teva number 2, and Columbia a fairly distant 3rd. Comfort and fit go to the Sperry as well as looks - a bit more formal for a flip flop with the leather type straps. Great traction and fit (I wear a size 9 but purchased the size 10 because I have a wide foot) and it looks great. Good form fit to the foot and excellent cushion. The Katavi is a pretty close second, but not quite as sharp looking as the Sperry. I also got a size 10 and the cushion and especially the lining of the strap are good quality and comfortable. The Katavi's have more aggressive soles as well. The Columbia is not as nice looking, has a tapered toe at the top (which gives it a different looks), and I don't like the Columbia emblem on the strap. Also, the top of the flip flop is "plasticky" and feels more like a beach type shoe that could get wet and dry off quicker then the others (as opposed to a day out shoe). I also purchased a size 10, and the size 10 in the Columbia is considerably larger. I'll come back later as time wears on to see which one breaks or wears quicker than the others - they're starting to get less use as the weather gets colder, so it may be awhile before I get to that review.

    I've purchased 2 pairs of these for my husband. He has been wearing the first pair for years and they are still in excellent shape. We expect that they will last for many more years. He loves them so much that I got the second pair and packed it away for the future, in case Sperry has stopped making them by the time we finally put the first pair to rest.

    Why are they excellent? First, the quality is sooo much better than similar shoes. As mentioned, he wears them daily during warm weather and they are just getting better and more comfortable with age. Second, they are very nice looking for a flip-flop. Much nicer than the average. And third, very importantly, the shoes aren't flat like most flip-flops. They curve in a way that molds beautifully to the shape of the foot, making them much more comfortable to walk in.

    These shoes may be more expensive than other similar shoes, but they are more than worth every single penny. You will buy 10 or more pairs of others in the time it takes for these to wear out. And those others won't be nearly as comfortable or attractive.

    I bought a pair of these at a local shoe store last year and LOVE THEM. I'd wear them all the time if I could. I decided to order a back-up pair through Amazon/[...] to have ready if mine ever died. I got the new pair, the size and style are marked correctly, but the leather instead of being dark brown is almost tan and THEY ARE TOO SMALL. They fit really really tight, while my first pair was a dream from the beginning. I wear a men's 13, so I'm ordering the 14 to see if that fixes it. (I went to a local shoestore and found the same size/color problem with the 13s there.) It appears they've changed something in the last year about how they manufacture them--at least, the men's larger sizes. If I wasn't having the sizing problem, I'd give them 6 stars!
