My previous pair finally wore out (at the toe strap, which pulled loose) after several years of hard wear, including one of my dogs gnawing away at the heel of one sandal. These were definitely my favorite pair of flipflops (I have several). I've been doing without them for awhile, but can't any longer. Going back in to West Marine for new ones.

The sole is like the previous flip flop which is great on a deck but the upper is loose fitting and made of cloth and something similar to leather. When these get wet they stay that way for hours whereas the previous model was dry in a short time. The product change/redesign was a bad idea. Return to the quality product you sold prior to this. I regret purchasing two pairs of these prior to my departure from the states. I will be looking at other makes for replacement.

    Comments about West Marine Performance Flip Flop:

    I purchased a pair of these flip flops 1.5 years ago. I live in the Caribbean and used it just about every day for a full year for all sorts of occasions. They stay out in the sun with plenty of UV hitting them and still hold strong. I like the fact that they have great traction even on wet tile or other slippery surfaces. Not the case with other sandals. I used them all the time on my sailboat and they provided great grip on wet surfaces. The first pair lasted 1 full year of extensive wear. I bought another pair and I have had them for 6 month of every day wear and still going strong. Great product.

        Discarded pair with failed toe strap; repaired pair with failed side strap - separated sole to re-glue with shoo-goo. The manufacture should use a higher quality glue!

            Can't make enough positive comments. My husband and I were hooked on the "Sperry" brand. After trying the West Marine brand I can say this is a superior product hands-down. We where our flip flops year round, always around water. They hold up well and soles stay soft! We are sold on this product.

              I live in Socal and wear thongs all year round.

              These thongs fit and wear well but have a MAJOR FLAW that the toe strap breaks before they are barely worn out!!!

              I had one pair replaced under warranty and the replacements have broken one toe strap while the sole bottom and top have lots of life left.

              Really BAD design flaw.

                These are all I wear in Spring Summer and Fall during our outdoor season.I am an Avid Boater and I love the fit and feel of the sandal.But every pair I have had the toe strap, the piece between the toe and second toe failed before the sandal wore out.Once this happens the sandal is unwearable.It pulls through the sole.However,They are so comfortable I keep buying them from you.
