i usually buy vionic flip flops but read a review and thought i would try these since they were supposed to be supportive and had cool colors. the first thing i noticed is that they seemed a bit small. as i wore them i discovered that the footbed material is like cheap rough flip flops and leaves black on my feet because it seems to rub off. i also noticed that at the end of the day my feet and knees ache which never happened with vionic flip flops. my feet are wearing into the footbed materials quickly so i'm sure that wont help the support issue either. if you dont need much support these may work for you but i'm going back to vionics for the money!
