Took a little while to break in.

The vinyl straps were a little rough at first but once I broke them in they feel great. Good arch support but haven't had a chance to put a lot of miles on them yet!

Light and comfortable

I had foot surgery which implied a full reconstruction including ligaments and bones. I constantly use custom made insets in my shoes. I decided to try the men's Balboa Flips with the hope that they would allow me to use flip flops to stay comfortable at home and outdoors without the need if extra inserts. The have totally fulfilled my needs. The are very comfortable and fit perfectly to my foot arch. They are light and my foot has got used to them making them my preferred flips.

Repeat Customer

I purchased my third pair of men balboa flips in the past year. I have literally worn every day that I could for an entire year with zero issues! The only reason I am having to buy is I have literally worn the tread off them. They are durable functional and resist odour. They are also very light which I prefer over other sandals I have tried. I will be staying with SOLE products going forward as I am a very happy customer!

A classic flip flop

I bought these flip flops for my partner to use around the yard and at the beach. They are comfotable and conform to your foot.

Great Flip

Lightweight, well-made, and comfortable with excellent support. Great casual flip for the lake or beach. Good for travel. I have a wider forefoot and appreciate that the design allows for plenty of room for the ball-of-foot and toes. I've also always received excellent customer service from SOLE. Definitely recommend and would purchase again.

Super Comfortable and Durable

So far I am very pleased with the Balboa. I wear the pretty much daily these days and have found them very comfortable. The break in period was quick. The outsole is holding up surprisingly well considering how soft it is. The supportive footbed fits the foot well and prevents that "flip flop" sound when walking. I have been wearing SOLE flip flops for many years and the Balboa is a very nice cost sensitive version of their footwear.

A Godsend

I'm a lifetime flipflop wearer, having grown up on the beaches of South Florida and now going on 60 years old. I've seen every style and support methodology come and go. I can honestly say SOLEs are the best I've ever owned. I have over a dozen pairs in my closet now, from Rainbows, to Chacos, to Reefs, but the SOLEs are the only ones I'll ever wear again. What really sealed the deal was when I fractured my back in a freak accident a year and a half ago. My shoe choice became a real issue after recovery, there were some shoes I just couldn't wear anymore, and no flipflop had enough support to make them even a consideration. Then I found SOLE. I have no idea how you can engineer so much support and comfort in such a lightweight flip. I can wear flipflops again! Thank you! Now I'm working on adding SOLE insoles to all my other footwear.
