I too was excited about the return on the cheek sandle. I ordered 2 pair for myself and a pair for a friend! NOT at all like the ones from a few years ago. I would gladly pay full price for the previous style that was better equality and certainly a better fit. If it''s not broke don't fix it!!!!!!
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

STAY WITH THE ORIGINAL
I ORDERED FOUR PAIRS OF THESE 2 OR MORE YEARS AGO WHEN THEY WERE THE SHOWSTOPPER. I STILL WEAR THEM INSIDE AND OUT AND LOVE THE COMFORT. THEY HAVE WORN WELL AND STILL LOOK GREAT. WHEN I SAW THEY WERE BACK I WAS GLAD AS I WANTED TO ORDER SOME DIFFERENT COLORS TO ADD TO THE ONES I ALREADY HAVE. WELL I WAS A BIT DISAPPOINTED WITH THE FIT AS THEY ARE NOT NEARLY AS COMFORTABLE. THEY ARE OK BUT I WISH YOU WOULD BRING BACK THE ORIGINAL DESIGN AND FIT AND I WOULD BE HAPPY TO BUY MORE OF THOSE. I WOULD NOT HOWEVER BUY MORE OF THIS STYLE. THESE ALSO LOOK RATHER INEXPENSIVE. PLEASE STAY WITH THE TRIED AND TRUE!

This is my second purchase from Tony Little and I am very pleased with the sandals. I bought these sandals specifically to wear in places were I can't wear my Birkenstocks (beach, around the pool). I have not had any discomfort and I am very happy with my purchase!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
I love these South Beach Sandals
By TSC Fan

These fit me perfectly and are *super-cute*. I like having the arch support that you don't get in other thongs. The toe holder is a little uncomfortable, but I think it will break in with wear. I bought the size 8 in Black/Silver and they really cradle my narrow feet. My only regret is that I didn't buy a few more pairs at the ShowStopper price. Another homerun for Tony and TSC!
I was excited to receive these sandals, but the plastic toe separator has a seam that hurts your toes. The rest of the sandal is fine, but with the toe separator hurting so bad it makes it hard to wear. This was obviously a new style for this sandal, as there is no way it is as comfortable as the previous older reviews say it was.

Comfy footbed but painful toe separator!
I bought these sandals to wear when running errands with my kids. I have plantar fasciitis and found the footbed to be surprisingly comfortable. Unfortunately the positivity stopped there. The thong toe separator is incredibly rough and makes it very painful to wear. I shipped them back tonight. So disappointing.

I was absolutely thrilled to see these sandals come back. I have several pairs ordered a few years back and wear them every single day. I waited about 2 years for these to come back. Even if they weren't on sale, I would have purchased them. Now they are a showstopper, BUT, when they arrived and I tried them on; they are no where near the comparison. The toe separator is so big and hard, that it is impossible to wear. The sandal material is hard and not soft like the previous. I will try again today to see if there is any change. If not, I will have to return, but I really really want to like these. Why Tony, could we not just have the original sandal back. Please don't change it anymore.
I received my sandals yesterday and was very disappointed with the quality and the sizing. As for the quality I feel they compared to a pair of $5.00 Walmart flip flops. Sizing is another issue - I called in and asked to have the question posed on air as to what size a person should order if they were a half size - the question was promptly answered on air (which I appreciated very much) by stating I should order the next size "up" which I did - big mistake - I could not even walk in them they were so big. Also as to the sizing they are very wide and not made for a narrow foot. Needless to say these sandals were returned immediately.
Ouch is right

As some reviews have indicated, the toe post rubs and hurts. I got the sandals and decided to try them out around the house. While I really enjoyed the arch support and the gel bed was comfortable, after about fifteen minutes or so walking around, the toe post was rubbing too much and my feet started to perspire which did not go away since the sandal is all plastic and which I thought would happen --a good indication they would not be good for hot summer days. Between the perspiration and uncomfortable toe post, I returned mine as well and don't recommend them.
Good and Bad!
I ordered 2 pr. of these sandals, a white pair and a black pair. The white ones are great, however the black ones not so good. The strap that goes across the top of my foot digs in and I know I would have a blister in no time when I wore them. However I had no problem with the toe post on either pair, both pairs were very comfortable that way. I have returned the black pair but am satisfied with the white pair which luckily are the one's that I really wanted most. I would recommend them if you are lucky enough to get a pair that are comfortable. However I still much prefer the original Cheeks Lifestyle Sandals with the toe post that was all a part of the foot bed. I have 2 pair of those and they are the best! Please consider bringing those one's back Tony!
