    Will it be okay if I take a full shower with the classic jacks on! Or do I just stand there with them on!

    • Great question! I’ve worn mine in the ocean and they’ve been totally fine afterwards so I figure they’d be fine the entire time, but maybe just to be safe (since I don’t know the exact products you use), you might want to just put them on in the beginning or the end before you start using soap, shampoo, etc.
      OR you can just wear them around your house for a little while each day to start wearing them in!

    I just bought my first pair and my little toe runs the stitching on the side of the shoe and it hurts is that normal?
    Also how do you keep yourself from sliding around in them?

    • Hi Margaret,

      That has happened to me in the past and over time it will soften and no longer hurt. As for the sliding around issue, I don’t seem to have that. While my Jacks aren’t tight, I don’t think I’ve ever had an issue of feeling like I’m falling out of them. Sorry!

      • Margaret says:

        Hi thank you for replying!!
        When I say sliding around I mean the bottom of the shoes being so smooth that I slide. Also what would you say is your favorite neutral shoe?

      • Margaret says:

        Hi thank you so much for responding back to me!
        When I say skidding I mean because the bottoms are slick. I read some people scuff them up.
        Also what would you say is the best color and style to go with most outfits? I got the platinum traditional flip flop.

        • I’m a huge fan of the white or the platinum colors, those are my personal favorites and I wear them with EVERYTHING! Oh I see what you’re saying now. Yes, wearing them on gravel is a great way to scuff up the bottoms. Again, I haven’t ever had an issue slipping in them when walking around, but I can see how people would say the bottoms can be slippery.

    What is the heel pad you recommend!

  4. Jeremy Frontz says:

    I am buying my wife a couple pairs of Jack Rogers for her Birthday and am looking at leather ones. She already has 3 pairs of Jellies and I want to buy a couple pies of clearance leathers off of the Jack Rogers website. They only have them a available in 5.5 which is typically her shoe size. Can you tell me if the jellies and leather sandals are sized even a slight bit different? Thanks for the blog and help it may provide!

  5. Jamie says:

    What is the heel pad that you recommend? I no longer see it in your post. I definitely need something to make them wearable bc the heel is so hard and uncomfortable! Thanks for the info!

    • Hi Jamie!! Oh no, I’m sorry to hear that! It definitely took a little time to get used to in the beginning, here are some heel pads to try (I haven’t used them myself, but they have good reviews!) https://rstyle.me/+KHtbW90P9xV4WA9hZdhDKA

      These are advertised for the ball of your foot, but they are a good size to put at the heel of a Jack Rogers sandal so you can protect your heel.

      Let me know how these work!

    noticed that negative comments do not appear on this site. My black Demi wedges broke on the third wearing! As they were purchased at the end of the summer, it appears I am stuck. They look brand new on the bottom.

    • Helen Phillips says:

      Hi Jena! First off, thank you for taking the time to check out my little corner of the internet and for sharing with me your experience with Jack Rogers. I’m so sorry to hear that your Demi wedges broke on the third wear, that doesn’t sound right at all and I hope that Jack Rogers is able to fix this in some way. I’ve personally never had an issue with any of my Jacks (I own 12+ pairs at this point), but that is really disappointing for you and for that I’m sorry. I’m going to go ahead and reach out to Jack Rogers on my own and ask them of there’s anything they can do for you. I’m not sure they’ll give me a response, but if so, I’ll keep you posted!

    Hi thanks for more info on Jacks! I have had my first pair 20 years ago. Didn’t know how famous they were until, some one said Jackie Kennedy wore them on Nantucket! They gained praise because of her! You leave on beach take a swim, come back, slip your wet feet in them! Good for lunch or dinner attire on the island. I have collected 4 pairs over the years! I often wear them on the Vineyard. Thank you, now ready to buy a pair for my granddaughters’ 19th birthday.

    Are jack rogers made in the Dominican Republic?

  9. Denise says:

    Enjoyed your story, thanks for sharing. I was born and raised in West Palm Beach. Back in the day Jack Rogers were just a Palm Beach thing. Yes, Jackie made them famous! I’ve consistently owned a t least one pair of Jack Rogers since I was in 10th grade (14 years old). I’m 55 now. I’m down to three pair Navaho White, Tan & White and Orange and Blue (University of Florida colors).
    They are timeless.

    • Helen Phillips says:

      Denise! Thank you SO much for sharing this story with me. I love that Jack Rogers have been such a huge part of your life for so long… growing up in West Palm Beach, wow jealous of your weather!! Hope you’re doing well!

    Hey big Jacks fan here also love the gingham tote in this post could you please share the source?

  11. Brandi says:

    I bought two pairs of Lauren mid heel not knowing what size for my first pair. The 8 is a little snug on the little toe, and the 8.5 fits with some room. Is it going to hurt more bigger with rubbing and better to go smaller to stretch?

    • Helen Phillips says:

      Hi Brandi!

      I’m sorry I can’t be tons of help here. My initial reaction would be if you go snug and stretch, wear them in water and that should help a lot. BUT if you go a half size up you might be more comfortable, then again they’re heels so that might not work.

      xx Helen
