I have wide feet and measure 7 1/2 in woman's size. I also
have high arches, pronate, and wear orthotics with all my
shoes and sneakers (so I was never able to wear flip-flops).
I ordered the Tide in Bronze in a women's 7 and Kinetic
unisex in Camel/Khaki in a women's 7,(men's 6). As far as
the size, both flip-flops are exactly the same. The Tide is
lighter (7 oz) than the Kinetic (9 oz) and feels softer. The
arch in the Tide is also softer - the Kinetic feels like the
arch is higher and the footbed seems firmer. The strap on
the Kinetic is wider and is more casual, better for wearing
with jeans. And the Tide seems to go better with casual
skirts. So, I love both of them for different reasons and
decided to keep both. And now I am going to order a pair in
pink to wear as slippers in the house.

While I wear thong-style shoes often, these took a little
longer to get used to the wide fabric between my toes. But,
that said, these are now my go-to shoes for the summer.
Knees stopped hurting, lower back is feeling better. I hate
to say, but my Birkenstocks may have a new rival.

I suffered from planter fascia a few years ago and was told
never be barefoot. I purchased flip flops and wore them all
the time. I credit them for my relatively fast recovery. I
wore them for three years before I needed to replace them
with these and although I am not suffering any more, I still
think these are the most comfortable summer/indoor shoes! I
walk my dogs every day in them and have worn them walking
all day at an amusement park and never tired!
