The strap that goes in-between your toes is a little rough at first and the whole strap that holds the sandal on your foot is a little too loose right out of the box, in my opinion it should start out a little tight and get loose over time; but the foot bed is comfortable and the price is right at $17.
I would recommend this product.

Shoes are good and durable, but the previous pair I own the soles have tended to come away from the upper. perhaps a better glue /bonding process should be used. I'll have to see about the new pair.

I love these sandals. I bought my first pair at Academy Sports about two years ago and was looking for a new pair of sandals. I wear my sandals hard and these really stood up to the abuse and misuse I give them so I wanted the exact same models. I was very pleasantly suprised to find them so cheap here on the Columbia website and so I bought a couple of pairs and will probably buy a bunch more just in case they ever get discontinued I'll have a good supply :)
I would recommend this product.

These are great sandals! They were a little tight around the foot, but that makes for a snug fit that won't slip when wet. The tread is great and hasn't worn out like some other brands of the same cost. They have some cushion that makes them comfortable.
I would recommend this product.

This sandal is well made. It does not seem to have as much arch support as other Columbia sandals I have used but that is ok with me. The footbed is comfortable and reasonably stiff but not too stiff.
I wear size 11 shoes and these seem to fit just right.
I would recommend this product.

These and the other similar style Columbia sandals (such as the PFG) are the best sandals that I have ever have worn, and will only wear them! The best quality! Extremely confortable, stylish, and rugged! The best buy out there!

These flip flops have great overall quality, but the distance between the thong & the tip is quite long. It makes the flip flop appear to be too big for my husband.

For at least four years/seasons I've lived in the Columbia Techsun mens flip flop. Started with black and now swear by the Cordovan color because it's not as hot/dark in the sun as the black and not as bright looking as the 'Flax' color so is able to be worn with just about anything from jeans on up to shorts.
Build Quality: each pair has lasted quite a while. The current Cordovan (Techsun III) I've had since they've come out. They show absolutely no wear and The first pair after a year or so separated the top layer from the bottom right at the seam of glued cardboard. Another pair, the toe post popped out but that was completely my fault. All of them are made with this Techlite material which may make your feet sweat, but, add to their ability to last and take abuse from nature.
Comfort: each pair, possibly because of my feet, have taken a couple days of solid walking & sometime red marks on top of foot from upper to break in. Other than that, due to heel support, are probably the most comfortable flip flops around.
Cost: the online price ($35) seems reasonable for a pair of flip flops of this quality. Probably would think anywhere around a list price of $29.95-$39.95 would seem fair. Down the road from where I work is a Premium Stores Outlet that has a Columbia Outlet. Religiously, most, if not all of the Techsun flip flops they have are on sale for $24.90 regardless of color or if their from Techsun I or III.
Use case: this might be due to where I live but I wear these with everything. Jeans, shorts, casual khaki pants. For someone who hates sandals (which is what these flip flops are based on) I find these to be the perfect in-the-middle flip flop. They're certainly not a $50-$80 leather pair that can be worn in casual environments and they're certainly not a shower shoe that should only be worn at the beach. I actually feel these can be worn in any environment and still look good.
Conclusion: I own more Columbia gear than I can count. That's not because of my age, but because of their quality. For an outdoor company that only offers two pairs of flip flop styles (but a TON of sandal styles) at any given time, they truly have offered the best product for the best price.
I would recommend this product.

I've been searching for a comfortable flip flop to wear on the boat and for casual wear. The Techsun flop is very comfortable after a full day on the boat or walking around town.
I would recommend this product.
