BOTH BILL AND I ARE FIRM BELIEVERS IN OLUKAI FLIP FLOPS.
HE GOT ME HOOKED ON THEM WHEN WE FIRST STARTED DATING 8 YEARS AGO, AND I HAVEN’T LOOKED BACK.
We literally wear these flip flops all day every day. They have stood up to the test of time, and years later are still comfortable. They don’t hurt you between your toes like most flip flops do. I am not left with a red rash at the end of the day and soreness between my toes. We also love how comfortable the toe strap is. Other sandals left us with blisters, but we have never run into that problem with these.
2. Skid- proof
With us being on docks and boats all day this is really important. On the dive boat I used to slide around everywhere in my old flip flops I used to wear. Once I bought Olukai my life changed. They don’t skid on deck surfaces, AND they don’t leave nasty black marks behind.
They are definitely durable, and the same pair has lasted years. I literally wear these daily and they are always wet. They have stood up to acid washing boats, weed eating, walking in mud, and everyday wear and tear on boats.
4. Don’t smell
This sounds funny, but if you are around the water like we are finding a pair of shoes that doesn’t stink you out of house and home when you leave them inside is crucial. They don’t have the padding like some flip flops, so the water doesn’t get soaked up and start to smell. With my old pair, I used to have to keep them outside because they smelled like lake water so bad.
5. Fits well
They are true to size and fit perfectly.
6. Not clunky
Some flip flops are either too fragile and you end up with a busted flip-flop, or they are really clunky and if feel like you are walking around in high heels. These are perfect and don’t add the extra weight to your feet that some shoes do.
7. Good for your feet
They were ranked # 2 for best flip flops for women with plantar fasciitis and had a top nod for men according to Plantar Fascitis Resource website.
They are featured on the Orthotic Shop for being a great orthopedic shoe.
They were named the #1 sandal/flip-flop for flat feet on Feet Genius.
Pricey, but worth every penny.
