Every summer I try to find a "go to" flip flop. These aren't it. They aren't particularly comfortable (chafing between toes) and they are murder if they get wet. There's decent traction on the bottom, but nothing for your feet to hold onto. So you will slide right out of these. If you want a shoe to wear in bone dry conditions and you have tough skin between your toes, this is your shoe. Otherwise--pass.
