        I wear 8.5 women's US size. These sandals only come in full sizes (8, 9, etc.). I chatted online with sales person. Having read a previous review that the sandals were large, I questioned whether I needed the 9 or the 8. The online customer services person said 9. I got the 9. Not surprising, it was 1 1/2 inches longer than my toes, which was uncomfortable to walk in and tripped me up. I returned them for a size 8 which is perfect. The return process was easy and the receipt of the new size sandal was timely. Just know when you order this particular sandal to order 1/2 size smaller if you wear an in between half size as I do. Thus, get a size 8 if you are an 8.5, size 7 if you are a 7.5, etc. They are cute, great colors, comfortable and very trendy and attractive. Not as sturdy/heavy Teva sandalsas I have previously worn), yet only half the price as I have the more sophisticated walking sandals that came in half sizes, which are perfectly true to size. I will order additional pairs of these in other colors as $$ flow permits!

          I am a 1/2 size. Do I size up or down?

          • CUSTOMER CARE

            A:

            We recommend ordering up if between sizes in our flip flops. This can vary from one person to the next. For example, if you have short toes, you may want to order down.

        • Q:

          How do you clean the Original Universal sandals? Do the white ones stain easily?
          Asked on 4/25/2014 by Curious one

          1 answer

          • CUSTOMER CARE

            A:

            Most stains can be removed using a "magic eraser", which is normally used for household cleaning, and water. You can also use a mile anti-bacterial soap and a soft bristled brush for cleaning.

        • Q:

          Do the women's shoes fit loose and can they be adjusted if they are loose? I have a very narrow foot and very high arch and would like to know how they fit.I have heard they are very comfy and would love to know if they would work for me because flip flops and sandals dont work AT ALL!!!!!!
