by JQOzwife So cute and comfortable
I got my first pair of LL Bean flip flops 6 years and have never looked back. Since retiring to Florida, I've found that flip flops are a necessary staple, and I need them to be comfortable, stylish, and durable. My LL Bean flip flops have fulfilled all those needs. I've even started giving them as gifts to family. Our flip flops have been worn to the beach, Kennedy Space Center, Disney, boating, the farmer's market, etc. and they have been extremely comfortable and long lasting wherever our adventures have taken us. I've included a photo of my flip flops. Its hard to tell from a photo, but my oldest pair which is about 6 yrs old look almost as new as the pair I got just a couple of months ago, you really can't tell that much of a difference between the oldest and newest, and believe me, I live in them. Yup, I've found them to be that good, and no, I'm not getting paid to say this, I'm just speaking from my own experience.

Rated 3 out of 5 by NEmom123 What happened to these?
I too have loved my old pairs of LL Bean flip flops. When the bottom part of the sole of my favorite pair started to separate I decided to buy a new pair, and they are nowhere near as comfortable. The arch is in the completely wrong place so there's an uncomfortable bump towards the back of my foot. I hope LL Bean will read some of these reviews and go back to the old design.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Ihatetoshopforclothes Decline in quality and a major disappointment
2012 version: 4 years ago, I purchased a pair of these, and found them to be the BEST flip flops EVER!! The straps were very comfortable, and the soles were so cushioned that I actually used them as my primary walking shoe for a week-long trip to London, as well as wearing them all summer long for the next 4 summers. As my 2012 pair began to wear on the bottom (although generally still in excellent shape), I decided it was time to treat myself to a new pair.
I was very disappointed with the new version. In fact, it is unconscionable how bad these are, compared to the older version. The sole is stiff and far less cushioned than my old pair, even after wearing them for 4 years. Worse still, when the stiff and uncomfortable straps get wet, they leave a purple dye behind that resembles a bruise on my foot. Ridiculous.
The old version was so perfect, that the only reason I can possibly imagine LL Bean would change it is to save money, at the cost of quality. Badly done, LL Bean.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Loveflipflop Feel stiff
Not the best I've worn. Materials feel stiff, not cushy. If you want cushy feel (I love that!) then I'm not sure if LLBean's price of $70 could really justify it. These flip-flops...I got on sale. I'm glad, because I wouldn't have liked to have paid any more money for these. I wear flip-flops from April until October, nearly every day, so they really have to last. I'll see if these do or not. I would recommend these, but only because they are OK between the toe and I can justify the sale price of $25. I wouldn't pay any more than that for these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by debalou best flip flop ever
i have tried many different brands of flip flops over the years and these are the best. I purchased the pair with the lobsters (very cute and comfortable. I will keep these in mind when I need a new pair. True to size and don't hurt between the toes.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Bettina Too big
I have worn Maine Isle flip flops for many years and have been perfectly satisfied. I ordered plain black ones this year and am sending them back because they are too big - length and width. My usual size is 7 but these are too flopy. What have you done LLB? I said "yes" to the question about recommending them to a friend because I have no problem with the quality, but would warn them about the sizing.

Rated 1 out of 5 by TenderTulip BRING BACK WEDGE STYLE
The newer version of these flip flops are awful. Overall very big.
I have purchased and still have several pairs of the wedge style.
They are better quality than what is being offered in the current version.
I have returned the newer version. Disappointed.

Oh, no, an LL Bean product that I cannot recommend!! I have been wearing LL Bean flip flops for years in all sorts of colors and designs. These black flip flops were great -- until I got my feet wet. I now have ugly stains on my feet where the tops touch the top of my feet. The first time this happened at the pool, I blamed it on the fact that maybe the pool was over-chlorinated. However, today it happened when my feet got wet in the rain.

Rated 5 out of 5 by OHLabMom 9 summers with original pair
I bought the black Lab print in 2007 (?) and I wear them from April to October. They hardly show any wear and wash easily with dish soap and a scrub brush. I finally decided I need a new pair to match my yellow Lab, Homer. :)
