Love 'em!

Unbelievably comfortable and secure on my foot, and I appreciate the extended size!!

AMAZING FLIP FLOPS

by Marty — April 16, 2017 3:45:28 PM PDT
After having a complete hip replacement, I ordered the Fin 2.0 and absolutely loved them.... I needed some flip flops just as comfortable and cushy, yet supportive for my hip, back and knee problems......so I decided to try the The Skiff. TOTALLY AMAZING! Now 5 weeks out from hip replacement, I'm standing in front of my boat fishing 5-6 hours at a time with NO hip pain, NO back pain, and NO knee pain. I haven't been able to do that for many, many years! These Soft Science shoes and flip flops make fishing a "Pure Joy" for me again!

Thanks Soft Science!

If my feet could smile, they would be grinning from ear to ear! The most comfortable flip flop ever...and I've tried them all. With a meniscus issue and a
Achilles problem, I have to be careful what I wear...and these are the best!

WUNNERFUL, WUNNERFUL.

I'm a pretty and chubby chick. 66 years young, thought how can a flip flop support me? If it's that soft, it will just 'squish' and not give support. Well, I took a chance. Best 'chance' I've taken in along time. It doesn't even hurt between the toes. Feel safe walking with the 'ruffer' type bottom. These flip flops are so WORTH IT!!!!!!

Sizing

by Kcinkc — April 1, 2016 5:38:55 PM PDT
I just bought a pair of skiffs in a size 10 because I normally buy 9.5 shoes. I got them today and am a little disappointed in them. The width is fine but the strap and toe part don't fit right. My arch is high so my toe strap doesn't go all the down between my toes sof the shoend doesn't feel like it's all the way on. This makes my foot farther back than it should be , my heel hanging over. They feel like comfy shoes, they are nicely made . I don't think buying a bigger pair would matter.

Another note on sizing

by Happy Feet — January 11, 2016 5:47:28 AM PST
Just received my Skiff's and wanted to add a note regarding sizing since a few of the below comments were important factors in my purchase process. I took advantage of the comfort guarantee offered by soft science knowing that if the sandals didn't fit i could return them. Well, they fit and so i didn't have to exchange them but thats not the point of my post. The point is that I am a half size and so I sized up which was the ay to go. Just size up if in doubt! These are my second pair of soft science and I found success in sizing up.

color of shoe

by Brenda — January 10, 2016 10:37:31 AM PST
black shoes rarely have the same size as other colors. A shoe salesperson told me the black dye caused this

Slight variance in same size

by Just an old soul — December 9, 2015 6:58:09 PM PST
I bought a size 11 in brown/blue combo. I liked them so much I bought another pair in size 11 in black/black combo. Oddly, the black/black is not as wide or long as the other pair. My heel nearly falls off the back. It's very slight and minor and probably due to the manufacturing process. My feet are very wide so every 1/16th of an inch in width matters. I am still going to keep them, but thought I would mention the brown/blue combo seems to have a wider base for the footbed. I confirmed it by putting them back to back, sole to sole to compare.

The most comfortable sandals I have ever owned!!!

I just wanted to tell you that I just received my soft science skiffs and they are the absolutely most comfortable sandals I have ever worn!!!
I will be buying nothing but your product or the rest of my life!!!

Best shoes in 80 years!

I love the Skiffs! My daughter gave me a pair and I wear them everywhere - even to church! They are the most comfortable shoes that I have ever had in almost 80 years!!!

Stranded on Vacation

by Joe — August 27, 2015 8:27:42 AM PDT
My wife's regular sandals broke while on vacation and we were left searching for a replacement pair. We ventured into a local shoe store and she started trying on the SoftScience Skiffs. She was pleasantly surprised by their comfort and look. She wore them while we pounded the pavement of Chicago and was very impressed. By the way, our 2 year old daughter approves too. She said "pretty mommy shoes."

Looking for the perfect flipflop? Just got the blue and brown Skiff. Snazzy, brothers. So comfortable I'm wearing them all the time. Have a back injury so good shoes are key to my well-being. Thanks! Comfortable and Great colors! Five stars.

AMAZING!

by Kendra — July 23, 2015 12:19:38 PM PDT
Feels like walking on clouds! I spend 12 hours a day on my feet as a nurse. These shoes are a little slice of heaven for these tired feet. Thanks Soft Science for making the most comfortable flip flops in the world without sparing a cute style and amazing support. In love!

Most comfortable flip-flop I've ever owned!

by Fitness trainer — July 23, 2015 3:55:51 AM PDT
I love my Skiffs! I put them on first thing in the morning and I wear them all day long. I tell people I feel like i'm walking on a Tempur-Pedic mattress. I was diagnosed with a Morton's Neuroma two years ago. It was painful to walk around barefoot, especially on the hardwood floors in my house. Thanks to the Skiff, I am able to walk around pain-free!

Sizing & Fit Guide

SoftScience™ shoes are designed and engineered to provide a roomy and generous fit.

Our shoes come in whole sizes only, so if you normally wear a 9.5, choose your SoftScience™ shoe in a size 10. This generous fit feels secure, but not snug, and allows for breathability, ventilation and healthy foot circulation to keep you comfortable.

Wide fit

For an ideal fit, have a gap of at least half a pinky finger on either side of your heel and above your instep.

Generous length

With wiggle room in the front of the shoe, your toes shouldn’t touch.

Comfortable heel

Your heel shouldn’t rest against the back of the shoe and may ride up and down slightly.

The Trileon™ Insole
Trillion&trade

At the core of the SoftScience™ shoes’ construction and personality is a proprietary material called Trileon™ — a closed cell copolymer developed by Scott Seamans exclusively for SoftScience™. The unique properties of Trileon™ — cushioned, stable and lightweight — allow us to produce a shoe weighing just six to ten ounces that is comfortable with high-impact resistance and support. Trileon™ is used in the shoes’ durable outsole and in the removable, washable insole. The outsole and insole combine to produce the unique comfort experience, which is the “WOW” factor in all SoftScience™ shoes.

The Trileon™ insole provides superior comfort and stability, but you can also remove and replace it with your own custom orthotic.
