Rated 5 out of 5 by NovaScotiaLLBeanFan Comfiest Sandals I've owned, wearing 2nd year
I purchased these at the start of last summer. I wore them all summer long, and absolutely loved them right from the start. They are incredibly comfortable. The mold to your feet and are super cushiony compared to anything else I've tried with a cork foot bed. I have medium narrow foot and problems with my feet such as bunion etc. and these are just terrific. I can wear them on long walks, on any kind of surface for long periods of time, and I can walk in these, even though they are a thong flip flop style. They don't remind me anything of flip flops other than the thong. They are thick, substantial, expensive looking, attractive, and I'm fussy. I dress up quite often and these look nice with summer dresses, skinny jeans, shorts, skirts - they are perfect.
I did not have any stretching with mine. They fit perfectly from day one and I have not had to tighten the strap. They've gotten wet, and they didn't stretch. I wore them every day right into the fall as long as I could and other than the toe area looking a bit dirty, they look exactly as they did when I bought them. The soles are super durable.
I will buy the bronze colour next. I don't need a new pair, but I want another pair in case they should stop making these. An extra is required as I doubt I will find another pair this comfortable. Everyone I know has asked me where I purchased these.
You don't feel your sandal is flat in these by the way - you have a bit of a heel, very small, but enough so you don't feel you are completely flat.
Great sandal LL Bean!

IThese sandals are going back to LL Bean and I do not often return items. However, in the few weeks I have had them, the leather has stretched and stretched and stretched. Each week I have tightened the buckle and they simply stretch to where they are now too floppy and I have a medium foot width.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Critica Accentuates pronation and makes feet look flat
This sandal may work if you have high arches. If you don't, then it accentuates pronation. It feels as if the outside of the sole is higher than the inside. Not only uncomfortable, but making normal feet/arches look flat... Not appealing.

This is the second time buying these shoes. My daughter wore them all summer long last year - they look cute and are so comfortable she can walk around the city or on the trails all day long. She loves them! Totally worth the price - a great shoe that lasts (we only bought a new pair because she outgrew the last pair.)

I bought these sandals in black and they were comfortable from the start. I have worn them several times already and am glad I chose them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JAC504SAM Dressy Flip flop
Sometimes you want a flip flop that is just a tad bit dressier than a regular one. This one fits the bill. I have a narrow foot and it is hard to find a flip flop narrow enough. What's nice about this one is that it can accommodate several widths due to the adjustable strap and buckle. Looks dressy. Fit is very comfortable.

I received these sandals and immediately tried them on. The bottom of the sandals were extremely comfortable. My initial thoughts....wow, I love these! Then walked about the bedroom, for a matter of minutes and the area on the top of the sandal was uncomfortable. I am all about the comfort. I continued to walk in them, the area was uncomfortable. I looked at what appears to be leather and I thought would be soft and pliable. It appears to be a man made substance that is not leather. I returned them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by mtbjane Lovely "update" of a flip flop sandal
I purchased the copper in a size 8. I can usually fit a 7.5 or 8 shoe, but decided to go up a size in accordance with the instructions. The fit is perfect. Upon arrival, I wore these sandals all day without any discomfort. Great support. My feet tend to be on the wide side, but did not find these shoes to be narrow.

Rated 5 out of 5 by AvidShopperLLBean Stunning look for a plain "flip-flop"
Looking forward to wearing these comfortable and attractive sandals with another recent purchase from LL Bean. The pearl finish is a welcomed change to plain white. Am contemplating ordering the red as well. Hopefully LLBean will still carry my size.
