Why I need Slip on Comfort Shoes?
Because I am too lazy to tie shoes. I don’t want to reach down that far. I just need something that slips on and off without revealing my feet. I’m not into flip flops. But I need a covered flip flop.

What am I looking for in a Slip on Comfort Shoe?
1). Comfort: Of course. I must be able to wear these everyday. I must be able to walk long distances in them. I must be able to have enough cushion on my feet. These are all required elements of slip on comfort shoes. They have to fill the role of a covered sandal.
I got my Sanuk shoes for Christmas 2015. They are comfortable. 5 Star comfort:
2). Easy to Slip on: The one knock on the Sanuk slip on shoes is that they don’t slip on easily enough. The issue is that they run a little big (I wear a 10.5 but I bought a 10). But, the back heel support takes some time to wear in.
After about 3 weeks of wearing them, I was able to put them on without using my finger to pull back the heel support.
3). Smell: Something about wearing shoes without socks makes them smell bad. There should be enough insulation from the smell that they don’t scare people away.

4). PRICE: I have been through my fair share of slip on shoes. Sandals and flip flops. I usually buy junk that costs about $20. None of them last and my feet always hurt. So, I did spend the extra on the Sanuk shoes. I had to wait until Christmas to get them. To me, they are worth the cost.
5). Can they get Wet? If you are going to buy surfer shoes, you need to know that they can get wet without getting sloppy, falling off of your feet or getting moldy. I wear these Sanuks a lot in the river. They provide a level of protection and they stay on my feet. They are basically a flip flop with a top.
6). Long Lasting: If you are going to spend close to $70 on a pair of shoes you need to know that they will last you at least 5 years. I am going on 2 years with the Sanuks. So far there aren’t any issues. No fraying, tearing, holes or wearing.
Summary: I have nothing but positive things to say about my Sanuks. They take about 3 weeks to fully wear in. Now I just leave them by my bedside and slip them on whenever needed. To me they are the #1 choice, but shoes are such a personal decision that I can’t decide this for everyone.
