Men’s Tango™ Thong II Sandal is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 28.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I was looking for More comfortable than I would have thought. I was looking for a quality sandal with traction. The bottom feels like a shoe with its traction. They feel secure and comfortable to walk and hike in. Love these!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not as good as the original I bought a pair of original Tangos that lasted me 6 or 7 years of almost every day use. So when they finally broke I purchased the Tango 2. After just under year the toe strap cover first separated from the sandal and then the threads. Considering the price you charge for these sandals I would have expected the same quality as the originals. Its disappointing because this model was the most comfortable sandals I've ever worn. I'm not sure if I want to invest this much money again if I can't count on them lasting. Is your quality slipping like so many other companies these days? You can't rely on your name for long if this is the case.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from still mostly the same, which is great After about 5 years of Tangos practically every day (I wish they were still made) I decided to try the sequel. I usually go a size larger for a little extra room. After measuring them against my old pairs and wearing them for a week I can say these are identical in fit. I'm not a huge fan of the strap styling, I prefer a cleaner look, but it's not that big a deal. The feel is out of this world for a sandal. The quality appears to be the same so far too, which is great. I took a rating notch off there because at this price point the resilience of the strap-to-sole area needs improvement. Every pair I've owned has eventually failed there, and while it's taken a year+ every time I've been hearing others start to have less luck. Aside from that, I can't say thanks enough for these. They're my everyday shoe.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Didn't even last the Summer Bought a pair last year and this year. Last year's pair fell apart at place where sandal top meets the bottom, at beginning of Summer. So I ordered another pair and they have fallen apart there too. Very expensive shoes not to last even a Summer. Can't return because past 60 days. I am a big-footed female so I thought they would be more sturdy because men's size. Wrong. I loved them but they fall apart.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from favorites! Bought these for my husband, who already has a well-worn pair of these and compares all of his sandals to these! These are his favorites by far! The sandals have a good arch, and a great footbed and sole. My husband has narrow feet and the straps on these sandals fit his feet nicely and stay on. As soon as he received these, they came right out of the box and right on to his feet!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from miss After enjoying the tech-sun flips (several pairs) I thought I would try the Tango. Big mistake. Fit is completely different and they are heavy. For me useless and since I am in Mexico return is out of the question. Waste of money...FYI, the 'post' and strap are too far forward to hold the foot securely. My toes hang over the front, and fit is sloppy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good shoe This shoe was perfect and an upgrade from the solid rubber Columbia shoes owned previously. I was very impressed how they felt on my feet and were well made and I think they will last a long time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sandals Extremely comfortable and solid pair of flip flops, construction feels strong and stitching looks well done. The level of grip you get from the sole is amazing, I would recommend these to anyone looking for a good pair of flip flops

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very comfortable sandal The Tango II has slight color variation over the predecessor, l liked the predecessor's color better. That said, everything else seems the same. Very comfortable and durable. They do stretch over time, so I would recommend ordering 1/2 size smaller, slightly tight at first but after a month or two it's perfect. Con's - The toe strap seems to always break first, while the sandal still has life in it. If they make this strap twice as strong I can easily see two-three years of every day use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ten Years! I have a pair of these that I have been wearing for over ten years. They are finally showing some wear, mostly discoloration from being wet. These seem to be almost indestructible so I will probably have to replace this new pair in 2026!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Flip Flops I have these flip flops in two colors, and I love them both. The are very durable, and keep my feet cool throughout the day. The leather sole is very comfortable too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from They are comfortable but the strap between the toes keep breaking I like these Sandler but I have had two pairs break at the strap between the toes. I just got another pair, we will see how these hold up!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Tango Sandals Great sandals, these are my second pair, first pair I had for 4 years. I prefer the all leather sandals, the material on the cross strap digs a little into your skin when you first wear them until you get used to them, otherwise they are just as comfortable as the previous all leather sandals.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best Flip-flops These flip-flops are very comfortable. They have arch support, which are not common in this type of shoe. The foot bed design helps keep them secure on your foot. They are well made. I would absolutely buy another pair of these and recommend to anyone else.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Flip Flops I absolutely love these. They are so comfortable. Definitely would buy again. Columbia products are some of the best.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from flip flops good for people with flat feet. hope it fits because you have to pay for return shipping (not cheap).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Look no further Personally the first thing I do when I get home from work is change into my flip flops and shorts. These compliment that effort with their great fit, good quality, and excellent comfort. This is also my second pair, the first suffered a break but with Columbia's great customer service they replaced them for free....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Fishing Shoes These sandals have great style as well as support. It feels like wearing your favorite tennis shoe. I have previously not been able to wear flip flops or sandals due to the lack of support but these fit the bill. Firm support and well made product. Thanks Columbia!
