I am a flip flop fiend, and am in love with these. I haven't loved a pair as much since my first pair of Chaco's in the mid 90's. I like the thick sole, which protects my feet AND allows for my favorite advantage of Chaco's - my feet are forming the footbed to fit me perfectly. Hoorah for Chaco finally bringing back the strapless sandal in a women's size... I was feeling hopeless. These are great because the added straps across the top of the foot gives extra stability - my feet never feel like they are sliding. Two thumbs and two big toes up for these flip flops.
These were my first pair of chacos and I knew I could never return to regular shoes after I put these on! I had heard great things about chacos so when I saw these I decided I might as well try them and I loved them. They don't have a back strap so they aren't as good for hiking but with the other straps they still stay on your foot very well. These are way better than regular flip-flops and your foot will like them too :)
I seriously own 6 pairs of Chacos and these are my first pair of Hipthongs. I love the Chaco biofit footbed which offers insane arch support but the reason I love these so much is the lack of heel strap. Of course it's not for hiking but more for a laid back, just walking around campus kind of day.
