Reef J-Bay Sandals Are Pretty Tight

  • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I have wide, size 10-1/2 feet and, even with size 11, these sandals were just too tight for me. Here's a similar review from the Reef.com site:



"Love Reefs, and love the look of these sandals. However, one review I read mentioned that the straps were too tight, and that is accurate. The first time I wore them I ended up with multiple blisters. Also, the sizing chart for a size 11 shoe recommends a size 9 sandal. I was smart enough to doubt that sizing, and ordered a size 10 sandal, and they still are borderline too small. So order your shoe size or at most one size down. Long story short, if you don't mind a painful break-in, the sandals look great and will eventually be comfortable."



For $80, I wasn't willing to go through a blistered break-in period.

Reef J-Bay Sandals Are Pretty Tight

Do it. Do it. Do it.

    I've owned many pair of Reefs and have always been impressed. My last pair were the least expensive leather slide and they ended up lasting me for a solid 10 years; camping, surfing, water, mud, what ever.

    This time I decided to get the J-Bay. Unlike the Fanning, these do not have a bottle opener on the bottom. I've found that the opener ends up getting crushed and deformed after walking around rocks and pebbles, rendering it useless. Good idea but I figure; if you can't figure out how to open an adult beverage without an opener, then you're probably aren't "old enough" to be drinking.

    Bottom Line: These are way more comfortable, quick break in, nice leather and look better with jeans and shorts.

    stylish and comfy

      I normally wear a 10.5 in most shoes and went with the eleven. Once the leather got used to my feet, they broke in like a custom fitted sandal. They really comfortable and look really stylish whether that be beachwear or backyard BBQs.

      rad , the leather makes a difference

        absolutely rad , i wear them in wet weather with no issues , can bike in the rain with them without the foot sliding on the pedals and can walk with them wet without so far slipping on smooth surfaces , I even wear them even weight pressing with my feet , just give them a few days to break in and so the skin on your feet to get toughened up so not to break with the pressure from the straps - just hope that they last the whole summer , so many break down in a month but the leather seems to the capacity for endurance i paid the premium on these so I could get through a whole season without a break down at bad time for it ( like when biking in the middle of the night or out on some lonely stretch near the beaches etc.) and have confidence these will stay sound
