I like that these are waterproof, easy to clean and half the price of the original birkenstocks. However, whilst they're comfortable they're not amazingly comfortable, I personally wouldn't walk in these for hours on end, any 'slide-on' shoe just doesn't give that support or durability. Tbh unless you're a bit of a brand whore, I'd just stick to some flip flops from the market. However, having said all that I do think they are a lot more stylish than regular flip flops - especially in black. And the sole is nice and thick which provides perhaps more comfort than regular flip flops.
