Durability

Durability

When it comes to your shoes you are going to want to try to find something that is going to last you a while and will not fall apart shortly after you purchase it. It can become extremely frustrating when you spend your hard earned money on a product only to have to replace it again after only a couple of weeks or months. That is not something that you are going to have to worry about when purchasing the Skechers Bumblers Bees Knees sandals. They have a relatively low price tag to begin with, which is nice, but they are also not going to suffer from premature wear and tear so you will have them for quite a while.

As with a lot of products, the durability of these flip-flops is directly related to how they are treated. It is to be expected that they might break and fall apart more quickly if you are rough with them. It is not recommended that you run around while wearing them or participate in activities where you might be doing a lot of pivoting, as that will increase the risk of your straps breaking. As long as you are aware of what you are doing while you are wearing them and they are taken care of properly you will have these shoes in your collection for quite a while.
Flexibility

Flexibility

Flexibility is important when it comes to your shoes. You want to make sure that you are going to have the ability to move your feet around as naturally and freely as possible while still getting the support and stability that you need from your shoes. You do not want to feel like your free are locked in a prison and have your movements restricted by what you are wearing on your feet. The great thing about these thong sandals is that they are super flexible, allowing you to move around unrestricted while you are wearing them.

The midsole is made out of a lightweight material that gives you a decent amount of flex. You can easily bend and twist the shoes without risking them breaking or tearing. Most of your foot is going to be exposed in these shoes so it is nice to know that the biggest part of your foot (the bottom) that is attached to your shoe still has some kind of freedom for a natural bend while you are walking. You will have the ultimate freedom while wearing these great sandals.
Outsole

Outsole

The Skechers Bumblers Bees Knees thong sandals have a low wedge heel that sits on a one-inch platform, giving you a total height of about 1 1/3 inches while wearing them. The sole is made out of a lightweight and flexible rubber to help ensure they are not going to fall apart too soon after you purchase them. They have a decent amount of traction to them thanks to the grooved pattern on the bottom of the sandals. That being said, you might not want to veer off the beaten path with them and stick to relatively flat and non-abrasive surfaces, they are still flip-flops after all. You rest easy though knowing that while you are out and about your feet should not slip out from underneath you because your sandals could not hold their grip.
Midsole

Midsole

The midsole of the Skechers Bumblers Bees Knees thong sandals is made out of a lightweight and flexible foam that provides a decent amount of cushioning, as well as a one-inch platform base for the shoes. Additionally, these sandals have a footbed that is made using Luxe Foam, as is with many other Skechers sandals, which is super comfortable, customers just adore it. It works similarly to memory foam and will mold itself to your specific foot shape, giving you the cushioning and support that you need, where you need. There is also some extra cushioning placed around the arch areas of the footbed to give you a little more padding for some extra support and comfort.

Thanks to the midsole there is a moderate amount of shock absorption provided to you. There is not a whole lot, however, but that is OK because these are not meant to be worn while running. What they will do is absorb some of the shocks that would normally jar your joints when your feet hit the ground, giving you a little bit of relief from potential joint pain or discomfort.
Straps

Straps

The strap that makes up the uppers of these sandals are made out of synthetic materials with a soft fabric lining underneath the strap to help prevent irritation and chafing that might be caused by your feet rubbing against the materials. The straps have unique scalloped edges with die-cut designs in them to give you a great look and durable feel.

Flip-flops sometimes have problems with the straps falling apart or ripping while you are wearing them, but that is not something that you are going to have to worry about with these. The synthetic materials that make up the straps are designed to take a beating and they will not tear or break easily which customers can greatly appreciate. They have a beautiful look and a long lifespan, making them a great choice for many people.
Style

Style

The Skechers Bumblers Bees Knees flip-flops have a great look and style to them that customers love. They have a unique strap that has scalloped edges and laser cut out designs donning them to them a fashionable look to them. They have mini rhinestones shaped in a helix accents adorning them to give them a little sparkle and shine that will catch the eye of others while you are walking around in them. They do only have two color options available, you can choose either a black strap or a white one. Regardless of what color you choose it will have a black platform. Some customers would love to see some other color options in the future but for right now they seem to be content with what they have available to them.
Support

Support

Finding a pair of shoes that are going to give you a decent amount of support for the task at hand is important, you want to make sure that your feet are going to be locked in place and safe while you are on the go. The Skechers Bumblers Bees Knees sandals are flip-flops and as such, they do not offer a whole lot in the way of support. You should only be wearing them as a pair of casual shoes and you should not be doing any kind of labor or physical activities while wearing them and as such, they are not going to need as much support as some other shoes might.

The strap of these sandals should fit you snuggly enough around your foot that you are not going to slide right out of your shoe while you are walking. That is about the only feature these shoes have to keep you locked into place, so keep that in mind while you are wearing them.

As for arch support, these shoes offer a lot! The footbed is made of Luxe foam which would, in and of itself, provide a decent amount of arch support, but Skechers went above and beyond and added some extra padding in the arch areas of the footbed to make sure you get the proper support. The foam is going to mold and form around your foot to give you a more personalized feel and offer you the support that you need, right where you need it.
Fit

Fit

When it comes to your shoes you are going to want to make sure you get the perfect size for the best fit. In the case of the Skechers Bumblers Bees Knees flip-flops, you want to make sure that the strap fits around your foot snuggly, but do you not want it too tight that it is going to rub against your skin uncomfortably, or cut into your foot. At the same time, you do not want them to be too big that your feet slide around inside of it, more so than they probably already do in a pair of shoes like these. In addition to the strap, you want to make sure that the actual size of the shoes is correct. You do not want the platform to be too big so you have a lot of extra room in the back of your foot, that can cause you to trip and fall, especially if you are trying to walk downstairs. You also do not want them to be too small so that your feet hang off the back of them.

Customers have stated that these Skechers are running true to size so that should help you figure out what size you are going to need to order. If you are unsure or simply want to take a second glance, you can always consult their sizing chart to make sure you get the perfect fit the first time you order them.
Weight

Weight

When it comes to your shoes you are going to want to find something that is not going to weigh a whole lot. You want to find a pair that are going to be relatively lightweight so you do not have to feel like you are walking around with weights attached to your feet to hold you back and slow you down. The good thing about the Skechers Bumblers Bees Knees thong sandals is that they are lightweight. Since they are flip-flops there is not a lot to them, to begin with, and the parts that you do have are virtually weightless. The platform is mostly made out of lightweight foams that weigh next to nothing and then you have the little strap that makes up the upper. Unfortunately, there is not a whole lot of information on the exact weight of these shoes but customers can agree that they are light and it is much appreciated.
