Anyone tried these? Are they more comfy than standard flip flops? Thank you!

Do you mean the new Havaianas style ones, as opposed to the ones that have been around for a while? I bought some (Havaianas style with plastic thong - am I imagining that's what it's actually called? blush) and I'd say that while the sole is much more comfortable and supportive than ordinary flip flops they've made the toe post too hard and thick, so I'm struggling with them a bit. I'm a seasoned flip flop wearer so I'm hoping that this is just my winter feet readjusting to the feeling of a toe post, but I'm not convinced. I wish they were made of softer, squashier plastic.

I had PF last spring, possibly caused by wearing flat flip-flops. My physio told me to try Flitflops and I'm converted.
They are fugly, my teens tried to ban me wearing them, but so comfy.
I'd recommend.

I love mine they are definitely more comfortable than a standard flip flop. Ive always worn flip flops but last year I treated myself to the fit flop ones, I am now a complete convert!

I can walk for miles in fitflops. Very comfy. I have at least 6 pairs and 2 pairs of fitflop boots. I can't wear their slides tho - not comfortable at all.

Are these the ones you mean? Have been looking at them as a possible alternative to birkenstocks which I live in during the summer due to PF

Those are the ones I was talking about please. I've been wearing FitFlops for years because of previous PF (now mostly gone, interestingly) but I hated the look of them so was excited when I saw they'd done some that were much less distinctively FitFlop. I see that the reviews are good so it must just be my feet!

Pleasestopsnoring yes those are the ones! I think I might give them a try. I wear havs from May-September but the flatness just isn't good for my feet...

Just bought a pair today. They stem comfyish for fitflops. Good level of squish, had to buy a size up though....
