Actually, it turns out to be a great way to meet some fun locals.
When it turns out (surprise!) that the 'beachside getaway' you rented is a half-mile from the water, you're glad brought the Reef Girls Slap 2 Sandal instead of some flimsy flippy along on your vacation. Now, you're doing the daily trek through blocks of cottages and shops in comfort, thanks to this sandal's neoprene-lined strap, squishy molded EVA footbed with arch support, and grippy molded rubber outsole. And since the Slap 2 is water-friendly, fording the occasional giant puddle in your path is not a problem.
I bought these to replace a pair of reef sandals I had for about 6 years. These babies last! I wore them about 320 days a year for those 6 years. Got these and they are great, same fit and comfort. Bring on the next 6 years!
