Mens ADILETTE is a great slip on sandal. Comfortable and keeps its looks for a long time. Perfect for competitive athletes who need to share common bathing facilities with other competitors and don't want to run the risk of foot fungus infection or a slipping accident. Comfort is aided by footbed mold profile depressions for the big toe and a slightly raised arch support. Much better fit and feel than just a flat footbed.

greatest slides ever
i have worn these slides every summer for the last 15 yrs. i use them as house/dog walking slides. about three yrs ago i decided they were getting old and i needed a replacement. so i bought a new pair but they had little nubs in the foot bed. so i went back to my old ones. finally this year i threw them out because i didn't want them to break while i was out walking the dog. i looked all over but couldn't find them retail. i went online and was so happy to find the original style. they arrived quickly and fit perfectly. i hope to have at least 10 good yrs wearing these. i hope the red ones come back in stock so i can order them too.

They have changed the quality of these shoes.
So, I have been wearing these shoes for nearly 30 years. Every year or so I re-order a new pair. Last year I ordered a pair and loved them to death as much as I did when I was a kid. I wore them every single day.
I ordered a pair last week, and was so excited to see my new pair, but after putting them on I can tell you they have changed quality. The plastic is cheaper. The arch is smaller. The top plastic over your foot is stiff and unyielding. They are terrible. I am so sad. I would have rather paid more money for a continued quality than to have received these. Sadly, after 30 years I guess this is it.

I have been buying these slides for many, many years and I agree with the previous reviewer. This slide is only being made for men and they want the women to try and fit into the mens. They just slid right off my feet!!! Also, I was very disappointed that the arch is definitely not as good and the top of the shoe is much cheaper quality. It is not the same slide I just loved. The fact that they have altered the quality of the shoe so noticeably, nullifies the importance of making the women's version. Why do companies have to change what has worked for years!!! I just can't believe I am not going to be able to wear my Adidas anymore!!! I loved them so, so much!!!!

Cheaper quality now...
I have been wearing Adidas Adilette's in a womens size for over 20 years now. Most recently I ordered one online and the sizing has changed to a Unisex size and doesn't fit my womens size foot at all. Comparable unisex size is too wide and the arch isn't high at all. I then ordered a customized slipon and the quality was really bad - Hard plastic footbed, low arch and cheap looking strap - Made in China, ofcourse!
For the past 20+ years I have been buying them Made in Italy. Please bring back the Italian version for the women's foot. Till them I will be buying a comparable NIKE slipon!!

My previous similar model size 9 from Adidas served for 5+ years. I bought size 9 "adilette Slides" and returned because it was too small. I bought size 10 but again it was not good. Left and right shoe have different opening! Both of them too small for the leg. My left leg (opening 3/4") is cut with sharp edge of a shoe, the right shoe (opening 7/8") is a little bit better. The model I owned before had an opening 1-3/8".

Fit great !
I first wore a pair of Adelettes at my daughter & son-in-laws house.....they both have a pair, and I borrowed theirs when I was babysitting ( a few times). I loved them....both with socks on and without. Therefore, I ordered them.......mostly to wear around the house and outside a bit too. I live in northwest Wisconsin on a lake/rural area, so will wear them with socks in cold weather and without when it's warm. You were right on when you said to order them 2 sizes smaller for a woman. Am wearing them right now, and since I'm 71 years old......I'll say you are never too old to get your 1st pair of Adelettes !
