Instead of chipping your tooth trying to open a beer bottle, take off the Reef Men's X-S-1 Sandal and use its integrated bottle opener to open your tasty beverage. This comfortable flip-flop features a compression molded EVA footbed with anatomical arch support, which IS key when your job entails selling loud t-shirts on the boardwalk. The X-S-1 even has a drainage system in case some drunk chick spills beer all down the side of your leg, and its durable, grippy outsole ensures you won't go sliding across the beer-soaked dance floor.

Absolute best for anyone active

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

This is the absolute best sandal for anyone that is active. I have had every generation of this style sandal from Reef, and hands-down this design is the absolute best. I currently have two pair, the first I've worn for 2.5 years in the brutal Texas weather.

The key points which make this an unbelievable sandal are:

1) lightweight and flexible.

2) super comfortable and extra cushiony.

3) Several small holes in the foot bed for breathability and water drainage.

4) Functional bottle top opener.

5) Sleek, technical design.

I don't know if it's possible to improve upon this design. Unlike most sandals this sandal gets more comfortable with time. You won't be disappointed in your purchase.

Great little sandal

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

Very comfortable and form fitting. It feels like I am walking on a cloud with each step. Comfort and fit in a great looking sandal I would highly recommend this product. This is my second pair of reef sandals.

Nice Concept X-S-1

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

The concept of X-S-1 is very nice, The Drainage system to drain water off the footbed is very good idea for people that go to the beach alot of do lots of water type of activities. The upper nubuck doesn't feel as comfortable as the "Reef Leather Slap II Flip Flop" which has leather upper. The sole is very nice when walking on reef/rocky or just long day of walking its still very comfortable.

The bottle opener on the bottom is nice addition but I don't think i will use it. What are the chances of stepping on doodoo right??

The overall design is either you like it or you don't which makes it not for everyone.

Awesome sandal, fit is snug / too small?

  • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit:True to size

I love this sandal! It looks great, feels great, fits like a glove. However, it maybe a little snug/tight/small depending on what you are using it for. I have a true size 10.5 inch foot sole (I measured). I ordered a size 11 sandal. The outer sole measures a true 11.5 inches. The inner soles is almost an exact 11.5 inches. If you like the sandal to fit perfectly with less than 0.5 inch in front and back, and your feet snug against the straps, then it will fit perfect. However, if you like a little extra length in front, or in back, or sides to side, then you won't like the fit. Note, I'm worried about possible chafing from long walks or hikes, but for simply the beach or pool, I'm fine with a snug fit. Make sure you know what your need will be and measure before you buy. I wish Reef had 1/2 sizes, because I would probably trade these in for an 11.5 for a little extra room, but I can't go up to 12 or down to 10. I'll keep the 11 because I love the sandal and "technically" it is a good fit. If you normally buy a 10.5, but not a full 11, then you should be fine, but snug.

P.S. SUPER FAST DELIVERY from Backcountry - only 3 days to NC.

Dude, it's a pair of REEF flops...What?

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times
  • Fit:Runs small

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.
