I love a pair of brown leather ones that I bought a few years back.  I really need to replace them but haven't found a pair that looks as comfortable and fits my foot in the same way.  What brands do you prefer?

I have a pair of Reef flip flops that I love, and a pair of black leather Clark's with low heel and open toe (not thongs). This year I've been looking for a leather thong or strap sandal with more style than what I already have but no luck. Either the thong cuts into my foot or the straps are too wide and my foot flops around in it, or both. I've tried on a lot of sandals recently and I'm getting discouraged. Maybe one more shopping trip then I'll give up. Hope you have better luck!

I am wearing a pair by Nurture that are thongs and they just happen to be the most comfortable sandals. They replaced my last year most comfy ones which where flip flops by Born....I never thought I'd ever give those up. But try Nurture! Good luck for sure.

I really would like to find a pair of black leather thong sandal. Good luck on your hunt, I'm not holding out much hope myself!

Thanks for the tip, I'll have to look up the brand! They must be comfy if they are as good as Born.

another good comfortable brand is Dansko. They are a little spendy but well worth it. I love mine and plan on getting another pair soon.

Anything by Cole Haan! I simply love the comfort of a Cole Haan thong wedge sandal.  They can go from casual to dressy in one shoe!

I purchased a pair of Sperry flip-flops last year and I wear them ALL the time (I live in Florida).  I have a lot of problems with my feet and it was difficult for me to find the right pair.  These sandals don't hurt my feet, there wasn't any "break-in" period, I just put them on an go.  I have other sandals that look great, but I can only wear them for short periods of time.  I can wear the Sperry's all day long and my feet nor my back hurt.

Born's are great shoes as well. I have a couple pair of sandals, and I love them!
