I did get EVA Arizonas and Honolulus. I find them fairly comfortable with a few drawbacks:They (the EVA Arizonas at least) are horribly uncomfortable for anything more than a quick stroll down to the pool (unless worn with socks .) The last time I used them I got a blister on the top of my foot from the strap, which impacted my ability to wear any leather Arizonas for a couple weeks. It was tragic. They don’t break in ever, and are not easily packable into a suitcase for travel. Basically junk shoes. Whatever I’d use them for, I prefer Havianas or Rainbows every time. Would not recommend at all. Better to just have a beater pair of leather ones.
Could just be me though, my s/o wears them all the time without issues (we’re fashionable I swear…)
- the Arizonas do rub one spot on the top of my foot no matter how tight or loose I buckle them, so can’t go for super long walks in them.
- the darker EVA colors get “chalky” looking, like they’re covered in dust even when clean
- in really hot weather, my feet sweat in them and then they get slippery to walk in!
Overall, I do really like the Honolulus. Super lightweight and don’t flop and smack my feet like regular flip-flops.
