Two Pairs in Two Months Review by Don't Waste Your Time
Love Simm's products but I had two pairs break within two months with moderate use.

Love them! Review by Joel
I live in these from May 1st ( or earlier if I can) till the end of October, when I'm not wearing my Guide Boots. Not sure about the issues stated above, but bought my true size and they fit fine. I do have a wide foot too. I used to go through those Teva $20.00 flips in a month, these carry over into the next year, then I bust out a new "dress" pair.

Didn't fit well; way too tight Review by bobholthaus
I'm a size 9 in every single pair of shoes I own and these would barely go on my feet. I tried a 10 locally and it appears that the toe strap is too far back and at a funky angle, making the straps very hard to slip into and very tight. I had to wiggle my foot around to get them on and when I finally got my foot all the way in, there was a sharp pain at the toe strap. The 10s weren't any better. I would not buy these sandals without trying them on locally. I'm a lifelong Simms guy, and loved the look of these, but your flips are supposed to be one of the most comfortable pieces of gear you own. These fail that goal.

Good flip, but they don't last long. Review by Bynee
I have had them for 8 months now. As others have said, buy a size bigger! And after 8 months in Hawaii the right flip has stretched! Now as I walk around it comes off easily. Not what I would expect for $80 from Simms. Everything else I own has lasted from day one with the best quality. The left one is still good, but my right foot goes bare if I am not careful!

tight fit Review by smalliehunter42
Awesome sandal just run small. I should have got 1 size bigger. I wear a 9.5 figured a10 would be good but to tight... trust the other reviews and get at least a full size bigger then you wear

flipflops Review by steeliejunkie
warning !!!!
I recently purchased these flipflops and they are WAY to small, I ordered the Mens 10, they fit my girlfriends feet (9.5womens) if you have wide feet do not order and the strap is small really small.
Make sure you can try them on before ordering them

ok sandal Review by provofisher
This is a cool sandal and I like howbeefy the heel is so you can stand and walk in them all day, one thing i didn't like is how narrow they were. I ordered them online so it was hard for me to tell width and i don't have a wide foot so I thought I would go with my regular shoe size which is a 10. the other thing i didn't like was how tight the strap was and I don't have a fat foot either so exchanged them for a larger size and now they fit great, i recommend that you either get these from a place where you can try them on or go up a size to get a better fit.
