This is my fifth pair of fitflops and they, like the others, are wonderfully comfortable. One proviso - they are not good on wet feet, as I found out in a torrential downpour last summer. But they fit well and cling to the feet so you don't have to curl your toes to make them stay on and you can walk very comfortably in them. Lots of people say they don't like the idea of a thong between the toes but you really don't feel it while wearing them. I recommend them to all my friends. They are quite generously sized and while I would normally wear size 5.5, the size 5 is absolutely fine for me.
