Amazon calculates a product’s star ratings based on a machine learned model instead of a raw data average. The model takes into account factors including the age of a rating, whether the ratings are from verified purchasers, and factors that establish reviewer trustworthiness.
I absolutely love these sandals (flip flops but same-diff to me!) and now own 7 pairs in different colors to match the shirts that I wear all summer with shorts. The sandals are comfortable and sturdy. While I just added three more pair in new colors the first pair I bought, a black pair, have been going strong for years and were one of my go-to sandals once the weather got warm when I was still teaching. Being retired now I dress as comfortably as possible at all times and these sandals, along with one comfy leather pair from LL Bean and another black pair from UA are the only things on my feet from when the nice weather kicks in until it goes away again (about April to October!!) You keep making them and I'll keep buying the new colors that match my shirts!!
**Full disclosure: I am a huge Crocs fan ever since a severe injury 18 years ago that required me to have easy to slip on and off footwear. I own 30+ pair of the original Crocs clogs and 15 pair of Crocs sandals/flip flops. As far as I'm concerned they are the most comfortable, durable, and certainly bright and fun, footwear around. Plus, I never wear socks (even in the heart of winter) and love that I can throw my crocs in the washing machine when my sweaty feet make that necessary!**
