Nike Womens Comfort Thong Sandals - A Review

Updated on May 8, 2012

I'm a flip-flop kind of gal. Luckily, I live in Georgia where the weather cooperates with my love for these shoes. I bust mine out in March and wear them until October. I have several pairs in different colors and styles so that I don't ever have to wear “regular” shoes in nice weather. However, there is one style that I love more than the rest. The Nike Women's Comfort Thong sandal are my go-to shoes every summer.

I picked up my first pair before taking a trip to Las Vegas. I figured I'd wear my flip flops at the pool or maybe around the room a bit, plus I like wearing slip ones for plane rides, to make security easier. However, I put those shoes on for the trip out, and other than sleeping, I don't think I took them off for the entire trip.

Most days we walked a couple of miles up and down the strip plus spending tons of time on our feet exploring the casinos. My feet felt wonderful! I found shoes that looked good and supported my feet even for long walks. These flip-flops are incredible.

I talked my (now ex) husband into trying a pair of the Nike Men's Comfort Thong sandals too. He was not a flip-flop person, but even he admitted that they are comfortable. I recommend these shoes to everyone I know.

My first pair was the simple black and white color, but there are now several different color choices including:

  • Black
  • Brown
  • Pink
  • Purple
  • Turquoise
  • White

What makes these shoes special is the special memory foam comfort footbed. It is so comfortable that you feel like you're wearing a pair of shoes with special insoles. The Nike Women's Comfort Thong sandals are a great choice if you have achy feet. If I have to wear dress shoes for an occasion, I'm always eager to come home and slip these on my feet.

The only downfall I've found with the shoes is the memory foam does seem to get a little unpleasant smelling after time. However, I toss them in the washer with my laundry (and air dry them) and they come out fresh as new. Sometimes a little antibacterial hand gel can help in between washes. Another recommendation is to purchase a size larger than usual. I'm a 9 to 9 ½ and find that the 10 fits perfectly. This seems consistent with what other reviewers have mentioned.

      The pair I wear (black and white) are very UN-feminine. I think they would look perfectly normal on a man and no one would know the difference.

      Can men wear these flip flops. I don't like the bolk of the mens comfort ones. I really like the look and feel of the womens. Would it be weird if I was to wear these womens comfort flip-flops?

      Those look awesome. I'll have to check an see if they have them in non-thong though. I just can't wear thongs.

      These sound like great shoes! I may have to look into getting a pair as I don't have any comfy sandals anymore :(
