Size, comfort and price

Hi. Just wanted to give quick impression on these flip flops.
First of all the size. I put up photos that hopfully will help someone. I take exactly a size UK 8, but with these i took other reviewers advice and ordered a size Uk 9 (one size up from my norm) I found that, if you look close at the photos, there is an indent/impression of a foot shape with toe grooves on the inside sole of the shoe. I found this part (the whole length of indent) from indent heal to indent toe on the size 9 shoe, to be exactly a size UK 8, which leaves about half an inch front and back bettween my foot and the ends of shoe. Which is perfect. So if i had bought my normal size (size UK8) it would have been to small my foot would have been right up to both ends, whith no spare room. So i would recommend if you know your exact size, order a size up from that. ( sorry if this is all a bit confusing, lol, but its quite hard to explain/ Photos show it better)
As for the shoe itself, for 12 pounds, i feel is an ok price for what they are. I only bought mine to use at the swimming pool, for use going to and from changing rooms, and for that purpose they are just fine. I do wear them around the house a little, but for me i wouldnt wear them full time, as i have quite wide feet and find them a little tight on the band area. But this could just be because they are new im sure they will loosen over time, and it is not tight as in hurting, just a bit to much pressure for my liking, but i do have a touch arthritis in my toes, so that why the slight pressure bothers me. The soles are firm but soft enough, not squishy, i wouldnt want to walk any great distance in them, but they are not uncomfortable either.
Overall, for the price they are just fine nothing special and nothing bad. For what i bought them for (use at swimming pool and popping in and out to the garden etc they are just fine and i wouldnt recommend them For wearing all day and using as your main footwear, in that scenario i would maybe spend more and get something more padded and comfy.
As for longevity i cant say as yet, as i only had them a week, but they seem sturdy and well enough made.
Anyways, hope this helps someone and any further questions feel free to ask.
UPDATE: Just been using them for over a week. I originally said that i personally found them a little tight over the toes/foot, but i take that back now, they have loosend a little and top strap has molded to the shape of my foot. so all is good. no pressure on the top of my foot and they are nice and comfy :)
All the best, Take care and stay safe. G :)
