These flip flops are really great. There's a small amount of arch support which suits my feet and the bottom is very grippy so you won't go slipping and sliding if you're caught in a rain shower. Even after after a long season's wear they still look good. The printed square patterns are still visible on the top sole and there are no toe and heel marks. Most flip flops go completely ratty after a couple of months but I reckon I can get another full season out of mine. So why only four stars? On delivery they weren't properly finished. On one shoe I had the pointed ends of the nylon threads from the cross strap digging into my toes. It was easily sorted but it shouldn't have happened. Also, in August I started getting irritation from the strap on one foot. Again, this was easily fixed using some self adhesive mole skin for the local chemist. I was then able to wear them continuously and comfortably till mid October with no further problems.
