Reviews for Reef Men's Leather Smoothy Flip-Flop
People say Reef is really similar to Rainbow Sandals.
Great Sandals -- Pros / Cons to Ordering the Right Size
These are great sandals. After about a month of wearing, they have become significantly more comfortable (although they were already comfortable at the initial purchase). A couple things to note: - Don't expect significant cushion -- these are thin shoes (e.g., you could probably feel it if you stepped on a rock whereas you would not in a Rainbow or an OluKai - Many of the reviews say to order a size up. While this will provide more room at the end (and avoid the potential for your heel to feel 'unprotected') I would caution against this approach. By ordering the correct size is that you will avoid the 'heel smack' noise which is created by having extra material at the end of the sandal slap against your heel if you order a size up.
nice leather "surfer" sandles
Fit great. Remind me of my old Rainbow sandals.
I love reef sandals
I love reef sandals, they are the only brand I buy now. Very long lasting, supportive, and comfortable. The strap between your toes is very soft and won't pull through the first time someone steps on them while you're walking. I highly recommend these to anyone who is hard on shoes and looking for the best flip flop in the price range. (I believe they are Bette than even rainbow or Birkenstock sandals.)
Seriously the most comfortable
I used to wear the Abercrombie leather sandals and they were pretty comfortable, I walked right through the bottoms of them. To replace them I had bought a pair of Rainbow sandals. Not too bad, but I wasn't happy with them, started surfing amazon and bought these bad boys. Super smooth material and a really good price comparatively.
These sandals are just as better than my last pair of Rainbows at half the price. They look and feel awesome, and they are super comfy. The fit is exactly the same as a nike running shoe.
Excellent quality for the price!!!
I've worn leather sandals for years that ranged from $10 at Target that last about 6 months then fall apart to nicer Rainbows at $45 that last a year or so. These sandals are by far the most comfortable I've owned and have lasted 6 months so far with no problems! Great purchase with years of use to come!
Great sandal, mine slightly defective
I love Reefs, I almost always have. I've recently been looking for a pair of flip flops to replace my last pair of reefs. I've since purchased a pair of rainbows because I found them during an extreme sale. I went through the classic "wearing-in" period where they hurt your feet, you get blisters, and end up needing to walk around barefoot for a while because you can't stand them anymore (which doesn't exactly help the "wearing-in" process). I started to wonder if I had gone through this with my old reefs and just forgot about the initial pain of breaking in the shoes. Then I got my new pair of reefs. They fit like a charm and feel fantastic. Right out of the box your foot just feels like it's at home. I love reef sandals; and they say that because they're more comfortable they won't last as long but that has not been the case with me. My last pair of reefs lasted me for about 4 years with everyday use during spring, summer, and late into the fall every single year. I totally would have given these sandals a 5-star review had it not been for the slight defect in sewing. I didn't notice it until I figured it was too late and it's not that noticeable so I'm not too worried about it, but right near the thong part near the toe the fabric hasn't been sewn to the leather upper so that it aligns exactly. This causes the fabric to stick out a little bit from beneath the leather, showing underneath the strap. Like I said, it's not a big deal, causes not discomfort and I would, withou... Read More
Super comfy and wear well
Have had these sandals for a couple months, and despite my abuse (such as getting them wet, sandy, etc.) they still look great! I found these much more comfortable than Rainbows that I tried on. These sandals are comfortable right away and there is no "break in" period.
Great for the price
Great for the price. I bought two of these. They last longer than Rainbow sandals. I rated this a 4/5 because the heal is a bit short.
