I purchased my first Olukai Ohana flip flops in 2010 on a whim in a shoe store in Ocean City, NJ. I loved them from the minute I purchased them, and I have put so many miles on these sandals in the 10 summers that I have owned them. I walked many miles in these during a vacation to Bermuda, along the beach, climbing coral cliffs (IN FLIP FLOPS!), etc. They never slid off, had great traction, and are super comfortable. We joke that they are my mountain climbing flip flops. I have taken them with me wherever I travel, and wear them all summer long. The soles have held up incredibly well over the years, as have the straps. They continue to be comfortable and supportive. I have never had an issue with blisters or pressure points. The thong portion is comfortable between my toes. After so many years of use, the straps have started to fade, so I finally bought a new pair on Amazon, and they seem just as comfortable and well made as my first pair, which I have now retired. Looking foward to many years with this pair!
