These were great when I was younger!!!
Please remember that your loyal clients are aging! I now need a nice cushy metatarsal sandal with a strap over the top to ensure against falls in my home. The Balboa doesn't do it for me as well anymore. I'd love the Benefit in a fun black with iridescent colored shimmers, and the anti-microbial protection. Please, please! I don't want to go find another brand of shoe. Regular seasons don't apply to places in the southwest United States as much---some of us need to wear sandals year-round. And the Benefit Metatarsal is frequently out of stock when I need it! This sixty-something needs her Abeos!!
Not the same shoe :(
Purchased my first pair of the Balboa Metatarsal flip flops 3.5 years ago at a store in a local mall - heaven - support & cushion for my ex dancer persnickety feet!! I wanted to purchase 2 pair alas the store only had the one pair in my size (8.5). I asked them to call other stores, no available. I went home and did an online search ... nothing!! I even kept calling ABEO directly to inquire if the style was being discontinued and, if not, when it would be back in stock. Finally, this April the ABEO website showed that Balboa Metatarsal 8.5 was in stock and in almost all the colors - yipee - I ordered 2 pair and anxiously awaited for them to arrive .... well they arrived and THEY ARE NOT THE SAME SHOE ... the cloud like cushion sole with the visible metatarsal pad is none existent, it has been replaced with a HARD molded plastic sole, do not feel the same metatarsal support, and there is a suede like foot bed which I find annoying. Back they go - and now I begin a new search for my perfect flip flop sandal.
Ease of payment
All of my shoes are ABEO. They are exceptionally comfortable and they compensate for all of my foot problems. The metatarsal support is a life saver for me! I just wish you had PayPal as a payment option. Please add PayPal to your payment options. Thank you.
will these EVER be back in sizes?
Metatarsal is a great flip flop - will you have ever sizes again? So tired of getting emails touting these flip flops only to find you still don't have any sizes and haven't for over a year. Will have to move on to another brand. I've sent an email requesting feedback but to no avail. :(
Like a cloud
I just received my 4th pair of Balboa's. I love these shoes! I am a size 5 and this size is difficult to find. The Balboa is one of the most comfortable sandal I've ever worn. My arches are high, so I went with the Metatarsal. The Balboa fits true to size. Like walking on clouds. I can't rave enough about them!!
