These aren't my first pair of Olukai flip flops. I have two other pairs, which are pretty much all I ever wear from around late March until late Nov., anytime the weather at all permits. These are durable and I like the way the fit, the comfort, and the style. They also have good grip on slippery surfaces. They are by far my favorite flip flops I've ever worn, which is why I came looking for two more pairs in different colors. Repeat business is the best sign that a company is making a great product. I typically wear between an 8 to an 8 1/2 or European 39 size shoe. A size 8 in these fits me just right.
