I've bought the original yoga sandals for years and the new flip flops are a poor substitute. The soles are thinner, there isn't the support/cushion around the feet, and the straps between the toes are uncomfortable! Worse yet, they no longer come in XL (I wear a 10.5-11). I can't understand why these changes were necessary - was it cost? If so, I'd gladly pay more to get the quality of the old versions. Apparently other loyal customers are giving the same feedback. Please reconsider!
