DD has been a big Sanuk fan for a while now. I haven't tried them yet except I wore DD's BF's yoga mat flip flops once at the beach. They were wonderful & I don't usually like flip flops.

Kevin, I saw that you are on vacation in Hawaii. I hope you have a great time!

I have bad arches and knee issues, so if I don't wear my custom orthotics or Birkenstocks, I don't walk for long. I order my Birks online and the site has a Birkenstock insole that has enlarged my shoe wardrobe MEGA. You could use the insoles in these (men).
I know someone else who is addicted to these shoes in the summer.

I'm also a beilever. I converted a couple of months ago, while looking for the perfect flip flops, and I found them.

I have bad heel pain so I can't be on my feet for too long before they start to scream in pain. I spent 5 hours at the amusement park in these babies and I felt NO PAIN. It was almost weird...I kept expecting my heels to start aching while waiting in line.

I have the yoga mat flip flops.

If you need more cushion and arch support but insist on wearing a Flip Flop - two words for you: FitFlop!

Men and women shoes - don't buy the marketing that they will get you in shape - hogwash - but comfort and durability? Absolutely...

I bought my Sanuks...the ones with the yoga mat soles...at Dillards. They were $30 and I have to agree that they are some of the most comfortable sandals I have ever worn.

DW liked the look of these but like Crocs I do not enjoy a slipon shoe. Add the fact that I have to wear socks otherwise I get blister.

They look a nice shoe and we saw them in a number of shops in Orlando

THIS!!!! My FitFlops have cured my plantar faciitis. My butt is still lumpy, but at least I'm not in pain when I walk!

I was just looking at these at our Dillards 2 days ago...not on sale at all! Must be a local thing.
I'm wanting to try Sanuks, as I love flip flps and with my skinny-long feet flip flops work well. So a question; most of the positive responses have been about the 'yoga' flip flops, I do like those but there are some other styles that I really like the look of...

For those that wear Sanuks, are most of the Sanuk sandals as comfortable as the 'yoga mats'?
