1st up - great summer alternative to flip-flops. sturdy, no tripping over them like you can with regular flip flops. These are well padded underfoot, ideal for a quick trip out, a the pool or around the house. Beware if you have purchased before! This is my 3rd pair and these are about .75cm shorter than the other size US/AU8s Still JUST OK but next time I'll be going up a size. Arrived early.
