I've been having a lot of heel pain for the last two summers. In the search for a comfortable sandal, I have wasted a lot of money on high priced sandals thinking "if it cost more, it must be better". Not was I wrong. Those high-priced sandals got rid of my heel pain, but within a month the pain came back and I didn't even wear them on a regular basis. When I saw these on someone at a theme park, the woman wearing them raved about them. So naturally I had to get them as soon as I came home. Thank you Shoebuy for pricing them under $30! Let me tell you I wear these as soon as I get up and they stay on my feet until bedtime. They have great arch support, not floppy like flip-flops tend to be, and the material Sketchers uses offers a lot of cushioning for your feet as you walk. As for style...I think they look good with shorts or pants, but I wouldn't wear them with a skirt or dress (not that I'm a fashion guru, but I don't think they look feminine enough to go with the latter two ensembles). Sooo....if you're looking for some great comfortable sandals, I whole-heartedly recommend them. DON'T waste your money on those pricey sandals (you know who they are) like I did.
