The arch on this is not placed where a normal foot arch would be. The toe area is so stiff that it bruised me and cut into my skin. I purchased these for an upcoming cruise and sadly have to fork out more money to purchase a different flip flop. I was hoping they would be a better fit for me according to other reviews however the toe area is so rough on my feet that I cannot wear these for longer than 15 min without getting pain. I now have these bruises and it hurts to wear anything.
