- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I thought I had found the prefect sandals based on all of the positive reviews I read on this site. However, when I put them on the first thing that struck me was how hard these sandals really are. It was literally like walking on a slab of concrete. I have worn all types of sandals and I have had el-cheapo sandals that were more comfortable than these. . I kept thinking I had gotten a bad pair but when I went to a local store and tried them on they felt the same way. Maybe the bottle opener on the sole is cool, but the sandals themselves leave a lot to be desired. They don't even come close to the comfort of Sperry Santa Cruz Thong sandals and Columbia Men's Tango Thong sandals. If you want comfort then those are the sandals to buy. Don't waste your time and money on these. I was very disappointed.
Is the size off because you ordered the...
Is the size off because you ordered the wrong size or because they run big?
They definitely run big. I know some folks need to size up because of wider feet - not the case for me - they just run big.
Sounds cooler than it is...

Bottle opener on your sandal - sounds cooler than it is practical (think watching where you step all the time). Mine worked fine the few times I need it. A friend had the opener rip right our of the sole. Aside from that, the sandals are super comfortable. You can wear them for days on end. Mine ran almost a size bigger than what I normally wear. I have since opted for something more traditional.
Like clouds on your feet

Most comfortable flip flops I have ever owned. Bought them two years ago and wear them regularly throughout the spring summer and early fall. Still holding up well and will probably end up getting a 3rd year out of them no problem... Oh, and the bottle opener is a nice touch.

I absolutely love these. I always buy them a size large so my heel has more room on the back. If you buy your true size, then your foot will just about fit because of how stiff the front part is. These will stretch a little.
The "go-to" flip flop
Every year I get a new pair of these (I live in an area that allows me to wear them year round), after a couple day break-in period these things mold to your feet and just get more and more comfortable.
They are super durable and the sizing is pretty true to normal shoe sizing.
Favorite flip flop
I have had 3 pairs of these flip flops. They are very durable and comfortable. The bottle opener is a nice perk during desperate times as well ;)
Sole no good
I got a pair of these about 18 months ago. They run about 1/2 size big. I wear size 10 in all my other footwear but got 9.5 in these.
Although they are very comfy they are not very durable. The sole on both has started to fall apart & has become a trip hazard. I will not be buying another pair of Reefs.
Solid Flip Flop
- Familiarity: I gave it as a gift, but have feedback to share
You really can't go wrong with this flip flop. It is comfortable and durable.
After reading all the reviews I figured I couldn't go wrong with these sandals and they haven't disappointed. Although, I was a little worried at first because they were a kinda tight, but after a few days use they are starting to loosen up.
I buy a new pair of flops every year and downgrade the previous pair as back up. Wearing these sandals consistently since 2005 and I still get a surprise reaction every time I use the opener!
I have tried different colors over the years and these have been the best color choice time over time. The light colors get banged up quickly. Drop these in your dishwasher for a quick zamboni.
Reef Fanning Sandal Review
REEF fANNING SANDAL
This is a great leather sandal. They are really comfortable and the opener on the bottom is a bonus, My son was unable to find these and I located them on backcountry.com and ordered them for a gift. They came very quickly and he was really pleased.
I bought these for my boyfriend as a birthday gift and he loves them and has worn them everyday since. I'm glad I read the other reviews though b/c he wears a 10.5W and I bought these in a size 12.
The Best sandal
I found a pair of these in CA years ago, and fell in love. Just bought a new pair from Backcountry, and wasnt disappointed. Comfortable, rugged, stylish, and with a bottle cap opener on the bottom - what more could you want!?
Got them the other day and have yet to take them off yet. The feel really good and they don't hurt to break in. And fit like a dream. :)
They are very hot to the feet.
Most comfortable flip fops I've ever owned, but they're hotter than my leather AE flip flops I had before this. Just sayin....still great sandals.
decent flips, cool design
good beach shoes, returned because I was between sizes
They stink after a while
I've been wearing my Reef Sandals for years. They are soft, comfy durable etc
The only issue is that after a while they soak up a STINKY ODOR and then will never stop reeking...OMG...the Company needs to do something about this...I'd love to exchange mine for a new pair it's sooo bad. My wife can't take it!
Only Pair Sandals I buy
Just bought my 4th pair in the last 6 years, didn't really need them but was going on vacation and realized my dog had chewed on the pair I picked up last year. They're really comfortable but take about 2 weeks to break in if you have a wide foot, the longer you wear them the better they get I've found. I normally wear a size 11 shoe but have wide feet probably a EE width I think so I wear a 12 in the Fannings, I've tried the 11's but I can't start to get my feet in them. Hopefully this helps some of the people like me with wider feet.
