I have been wearing the Reef Fanning sandals for about 5 years now. I swore I would never spend this kind of money on a flip flop.. until I put my foot into one. These are the most comfortable shoe I have ever worn. I have several pair in several colors. I usually buy 2 or 3 pair every year but I still have my originals for doing yard work and stuff. They look great with shorts, or even a summer dress.
