    The Reef Fannings—crack open a cold one.

    It's hard enough to carry your keys, wallet, and phone in that sorry excuse for a pocket on your board shorts. Where in the hell are you going to put a bottle opener? Unless you're crafty with a lighter or have teeth made of steel, something has to give. Good thing Reef knows what's up—the Men's Fanning Sandals come with a bottle opener built into the outer sole. Finally, a way to open your microbrews without resorting to a European carry-all. Not only do these flip-flops give you a way to drink your suds, but they feature super plush soles and thick straps that keep your feet comfortable—while you're still standing, at least.

    Reef Fanning Flip Flop

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
    • Fit: True to size

    Spring has mostly sprung and everyone's sandals got some love the past few weeks. My boyfriend's old Reef flip flops kicked the bucket right about then, so I got him a new pair. He had owned the last pair for about 5 years and put them through a lot. I was skeptical about the bottle opener on the sole, but he says that his shoes were passed around for beers around more than one campfire so it works, I guess! I'll keep to my keychain bottle opener myself, but hopefully these last him just as long as the last pair.

    new favorite

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size

    Fit is great on these. Used for over a year now at the pool and lake with out issue. Has the bottle opener in the sole as a bonus. Bought on recommendation from a friend and super happy with purchase.

    Comfortable, runs large, quality

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: 10

    This flip-flops are comfortable and have some arch support. I find that they run large, I usually wear a size 10, but I needed a size 9 in this model. I find that my feet sweat in this flip-flop, which is why I didn't give it a 5 start, other than that, they are very comfortable.

    5th pair for me (woman, and daughter)

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 7

    I have been wearing these for 5 years now. I had plantar fasciitis and the sturdiness helps support my feet. I wear a women's 8.5 or 9 and the men's 7 works great.

    4th Reef Fannings Owned

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size

    They never disappoint. Purchased these for a 6 day Florida trip with lots of walking and aside from getting the toes comfortable with the thong part for the first day, unbelievably comfortable. Not sure if anyone can make one that can handle full days on the feet like these can. Most might use them for the beach and boardwalk only, but i did three full days of theme parks and loved every second. The bottle opener is no gimmick either, it works, and holds up. Style wise they have so many choices you can't go wrong. Reef the only flip flops, sandals that touch my feet from May-October every year.

    Garbage

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size

    Cheap, cheap and more cheap. The bottle opener is kinda cool, but really who wants to open their beverage with something that's been touching the ground all day? The soles separate from the uppers very easily and contrary to the little air-pocket fake out thing, these things offer no cushion. Very thin, not much cushion, cheaply made, one star.

    Heaven under feet

    • Fit: True to size

    These sandals are so a part of me I wear them whenever the temperature gets over 35 degrees. I have owned two pairs now. The first pair ripped the thong after a year and a half of loyal duty. You might think that a year and a half is not long enough for a sandal's lifetime but these bad boys were put through it all. I hike, boulder (or at least try to), bike, run, and do whatever I want t do in these things. They are so incredibly comfortable I never want to put on socks when the snow starts freezing to my toes. They do get really nasty after mud, dirt, water, and sweat start to mix and dry on them. However I then just take some soap and my hand, wash them, and they're as good as new.

    I have never used the bottle opener on these and don't really think I ever will but either way these sandals are my go to footwear for anything that I want to be comfortable doing, which is everything.

    Uncomfortable sandals

    • 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.

    Sounds cooler than it is...

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: Runs large

    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

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    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.

    Love these

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size

    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.

      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.

        Sole no good

        Good Sandal

          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.

          Reef Sandal

            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.

            Is the size off because you ordered the wrong size or because they run big?
