These are great flip flop / Sandals. I used to wear Reef Fannings...Not ANYMORE! I am 6'4" 300lbs and terrible arches in my feet and when I say terrible I mean hardly any. These Sandals fit and feel great. They do take some getting used to. The first time I wore them they did feel strange but after a couple of times getting my feet to learn they were real comfortable. I am not saying I could wear them ALL day long and not be fatigued a bit but certainly for 5 - 6 hours no problem. I did do as everyone has suggested and got a size up. I wear a 14 shoe but I got a 15 sandal and they fit perfect. My foot sits about 1/4 to 1/2 inch from the end of the foot bed. I was so happy with these after the first weekend that I got a second pair different color to add some variety. I have already suggested these to a few of my friends.
Thisnewer sandal feels different than my older version. I cannot say yet whether this difference is good or bad yet, but I will share my observations. Some of the differences are:
1) My previous pair felt broken-in the moment I put them on. These felt better after wearing them a few times. 2) They used a different material for the top of the sole. It's rougher than my previous pair. However, this might be a good thing because my last pair were quite slippery when wet. 3) These were quite snug when I put them on for the first time, and they fit a bit shorter than my last pair. For me that's a good thing because I wear a 10-1/2 and since these only come in whole sizes, I had to buy an 11. I'm not sure how well it would fit someone with an actual size 11 foot. 4) The arch does not feel as substantial.
Overall, they work well for me, but I don't feel that the fit and finish justify the price tag of $70
I bought these flip flops and a pair of reef flip flops at the recommendation of a "best flip flops of 2014" article I read online.
These flip flops are made of very high quality leather, and feel like they will not fall apart for a LONG time. The only problem I had was that my feet/toe rubbed on the leather material causing blisters for the first day or two that I wore them. This should not be something to worry about, as this is normal - when my feet were finally molded to the shoe, they have fit perfectly and feel GREAT. These are by far the BEST flip flops I have ever had in my life, and are in the top three pairs of sandals I have ever own. (Keen being the best, but they don't do flip-flops that I know of)
If you can get these for a decent price, I would HIGHLY suggest getting them. It's like walking on a sandy beach in Maui!
