Despite owning 2 other pairs of OluKai (Ohana and Kulapa Kai) that are quite comfortable, I wanted to try these because they were a little dressier and had a grey footbed that wouldn't stain my heels. I bought a size 7 (I am a natural size 6.5) and while I love the look and the grey sole, they are not nearly as comfortable as the other pairs I own. The leather post thong is stiff and irritates me when I walk and the "contoured" footbed at the toe area doesn't fit me correctly and also causes discomfort. I might have a had a better experience sizing down to a 6 than up to a 7. Given my experience with my other 2 Olukai's, I decided to keep them hoping over time they would break-in and become more comfortable. After 5 months, there is no discernible difference. I only wear them for short periods of time. The only reason I am not marking this product 2 stars is because of the sizing - someone who is closer to the whole size may have a better experience.
