Tried flops before and never got on with them. But since some of my friends rate flops so highly I thought I try and find a decent pair. I saw these Teva Benson flip flops, they looked good and the reviews were good, so thought I try them. Have to say I am very impressed. They are super comfy, stay on my feet well without having to scrunch your toes up and they look good (even my wife thinks so). They were a bit more expensive than most flops, but they are well made with good materials. Time will tell how long they last, but I've had other Teva sandals in the past that were nigh on indestructible. Hope these are the same.
