I did not purchase this for style. I purchased it for the
comfort and fit. It has a deep heel bed and excellent arch.
The ribbon material between the toes is a very soft, not
like rubber or even leather. For fashion and style I buy Fit
Flops. They can not be beat. I have foot, ankle, and knee
problems, so if I like the way a shoe feels it is a well

I bought the Tide after a friend with bone spurs recommended
them to me. I am 37 and, thanks to genetics, am blessed with
the progression of bunions on both feet. I have worn these
almost every day since I bought them -- and I have
experienced no foot pain! (I had nearly given up on wearing
flip flops.) So glad I bought these! I am going to get them
in every color! I normally wear a size 8-1/2 but bought the
8s and was very pleased. I have a high arch but can see
where there may be some initial discomfort if you don't have
much of an arch. I was able to wear them all day from the
start. Can't say enough great things about these flip flops!
My husband, who has no foot problems, now wants a pair!
These flip flops have nice heel and arch support, which
helps me because my feet roll in (pronate) and put pressure
on the ball of my foot at my big toe. By cupping my heel and
supporting my arch, the flip flops help me stand more on the
center of my foot. I don't think they're particularly
gorgeous, but they look normal (not like orthotic shoes!)
and that's what I wanted. It's summer, so I wear them almost
every day and they seem sturdy and well made. Thanks for
carrying them! They rocks, as always.
