Maybe it's time to move to the West coast.

Dude, it's a pair of REEF flops...What?
- Gender: Male
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
What more can you ask for? I had a pair of Nick Fannings for 8 years and I just replaced them with these bad boys. The Reef X-S-1 Sandal is a marginal improvement upon the perfection of the Fannings. Close toed shoes are now relegated to weddings and job interviews....if that. Looks like these puppies will last me at least as long as my last pair. Do your dogs a favor and get a half size larger than your shoe size unless you plan on running from something or somebody in them...they will thank you. The bottle opener is ok, but I only drink beer form a can like god intended so I don't use it. Plus, so you really want to crack open a Hiennie with your flop after stepping in Lassie's business? Didn't think so.
Like walking on a bed of nothing
I usually forget they're on my feet. You won't regret wearing them around town all day like cheaper flip flops. They are designed with vents in the bottom so when you're adventuring in water you won't end up with that mushy feeling below your heels.
The shock design on the bottom not only makes walking around easy on your feet but also removes a lot of weight from this vs the Reef Fanning sandals. The bottle opener is smaller and a bit harder to use effectively but I'd much rather have this sandal for the comfort improvements.
Most comfortable flip flop....EVER!
These things are so great! I can walk for hours in them and my feet are still fine. I remember before when I'd go on holiday with a $3 pair of flops thinking I'd just be near the beach or pool so didn't need an expensive pair of flops. Without fail I'd end up walking around the shops and restaurants with those $3 pair and my feet would kill at the end of the day. Well, not with these bad boys! They rock!

Improving on the Fanning Sandal For Water Endeavors
The Reef X-S-1 Sandal - Men's is pretty much the Reef Fanning Sandal + a bit of triathlon influence. A more supportive shock system in the back gives a better heel-toe feel and the port holes to drain water in the upper material are a plus.
These additions did give one bit of disadvantage to what a few consider as the best feature, the bottle opener. The anti-shock system material needs to be a bit stronger as I felt that some of the tougher bottle angles were unable to be opened (a thicker neck causes this sometimes). Nonetheless, a great sandal option for you water enthusiasts with a multitasking problem.
