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.

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.

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

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • 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.

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

Best Answer Responded on

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...

  • 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.

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.

18 months isn't a long enough life span for a pair of freaking flip flops?!

You really can't go wrong with this flip flop. It is comfortable and durable.

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.

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 and ordered them for a gift. They came very quickly and he was really pleased.

Great gift!

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!?

Love em

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.
