I've worn the Reef Smoothy for nearly 20 years. It's the best thong sandal I've ever worn. I live in a warm climate and literally wear them every day for 7.5 months per year. Ideally, they should start out a little snug, because the cushioned footbed will squish down and conform to he shape of your feet. I find that a pair will last two 7.5 month seasons. I buy a new pair every year, to maintain two colors in the lineup. Great quality, great price, great warm weather comfort. I'm an old surfer, and I can tell you, this is the real deal.

Have an older pair of these and bought these to supplement. They are manufactured in China and appear to be a cheap knock-off of their own old product.

I thought these were the same Reefs my husband has had for year that finally blew out on him, but they weren't. Reefs are the only flip flops he'll wear, but he's not crazy about the newer styles and materials used. I bought these thinking they'd be the same as the old ones (size 10), but they were very narrow, and fit my foot (8.5 women's) in the width, like a female shoe would, so they obviously wouldn't have worked for him. Slightly disappointed, but I'll keep looking!

These are my most favorite flips for hiking in. Yes...I hike in flip flops! And these have excellent arch support, sturdy, non-chafing straps and great tread on the bottoms. I love these flip flops but they run small and twice now I've ordered a half size over my regular size only to get them and realize I needed a full size and a half over. I'm normally a 7.5 women's. In these, I'm guessing I'm a 7 men's which equals a women's 9.

These are my second pair of Reefs and they truly are my favorite! They are so comfortable and durable I cannot live without them during the summer time, or for a pedicure.

Simple, basic, comfortable. Bought it a second time after the first pair wore out (which took a while). Glad it's still in production.

I have loved Reefs since the early 1990s and they never cease to disappoint! Though I do find that with the Smoothy style, and that I have foot sweat at times, that they squeak when I walk due to my foot sweating (my issue, not Reef's). But I don't care - I live in these flip flops summer-in summer-out.

These are my long-running favorite flip-flops, and having lived in the southern half of the US most of my life, I have spent a lot of time in flip-flops. I'm a women's 11 or 10.5, but I wear a men's 10 in these. I ordered these yesterday at 2 pm, they arrived today at noon. I love you, Zappos.

These are perfect in comfort and have nice looks. I love the arch support that is so "anatomically correct" that it feels therapeutic on my tired feet. I wear a women's size 10.5, and the men's size 9 is a perfect fit.

I've been buying Reef flip flops for over 20 years. They are the best money can buy. And the Reef Smoothy are the best ones.

I own 3 pairs of these flip flops, all purchased through Zappos. The flip flop is good quality, and the first pair I got is well in to it's 2nd year of use and still doing great, that's why I bought two more pairs. Definitely recommend these.

Size runs small. Usually I wear a Men's 6/6.5, Women's 7.5/8 and I bought a 6 Mens. Way too small, had to return for an 8. Great flip flop though!

Very comfortable and well made. They have great tread on soles so you're not sliding around. I wear 9.5 so I bought a size 10, but my heels were still close to the back edge. Next time I'll probably go up a size.

Great sandals. They do what you'd expect and nothing more. They fit well, the strap is soft and doesn't rub the top of my foot or between my toes. And the padding is perfect. Thank goodness for a company willing to do the basics well.

I love my Reef's. I have been wearing Reef's for years but recently tried another lower cost brand only to be disappointed. I won't stray from Reef's again.

I love my Reefs! They are the most comfortable flip-flops I have ever owned. I am normally an 8 1/2 - 9 in womans, and the 8 in mans fits me perfectly. Also, I ordered around 7 at night and had them by 3 the next day. I love Zappos!
