These slippers are absolutely so very comfortable. I've only had them for a couple of weeks but truly enjoying them. Remember to buy a half size larger than stated because they are really snug. Overall, a great pair of sandals and I'm confident that I will continue to enjoy their superior quality.

orst reef I have ever owned! I am 35 and work on the water everyday and live in my reef sandals year round. Day one: bottle opener doesn't work because the sandal bends too much to use. By month five hard plastic is poking through and hurting feet. I have been wearing reef sandals since 7th grade and have seen a steady decline in craftsmanship. Used to get 1 year before reefs broke or wore out. Now I don't even get 6 months. Last 6 pairs have worn out faster then the 6 month warranty. I wear them everyday. (Bring back a better Fanning 02.)

Recently purchased Reef X-S-1. Have worn them almost every day. Having worn Reef Fannings exclusively for years I just wanted to try something new. I can confidently say these are the most comfortable sandals I have ever worn. Great arch support and cushioning, even more so than the Fannings. I highly recommend them. The only thing I can not comment on is long term use but I have never had any issues with any Reef products.

I've owned at least 10 pairs of the Mick Fanning Reefs, which these are based on, and they're awesome slippers. They're my everyday walk-around, I wear them to work, to class, everywhere. So when I saw that they were combining the design with awesome running shoe technology, I had to buy a pair. Unfortunately the quality was nowhere near what I've come to expect from reef. After 3 months the support was completely gone, the "shock absorption" areas were flat, the footbeds had developed HUGE cracks in them, and the thong pulled out of the shoe! I figured if I spent more I'd get a good quality reef product with some cool tech. What I got was a Walmart quality product, with a lot of flash, but no substance. Very poor.

Just got my 2nd pair of XS1s. After wearing reefs for the last 15 years, I never thought they could get better than the fanning/vision/hamik/jbay, but I wore my 1st XS1s so much, the tread is almost going flat. Many a river trip, and just the toe area is scraped up some, but always comfy as hell, can't wait for this new green pair! Make this current pair #5 that I keep in my rotation. Best ones yet!

I am extremely happy with my Reef sandals. I already owned a pair of Slap II when I bought the X-S-1: truth be told, I bought the X-S-1 solely because they looked sharp. The two pairs of sandals fit differently, though both are extremely comfortable. When I wear the X-S-1, I feel like my feet are pointed downward; when I wear the Slap II, I feel like my feet are pointing straight ahead. Also, the straps on the X-S-1 are more snug. I'd have to say that, even if the X-S-1 looks sexier, the Slap II is a superior walking sandal.

I'd also recommend: Birkenstock

I bought these for my fiance in July of 2011. He found them very comfy at first. They have been worn outside 1-2 times a week for small things, they have been worn inside about 10 minutes a day. There is very little to no wear on the bottom of the shoes, which is good. Except the tops/sides are coming apart and wearing out. The strip between the toes is wearing out and coming up in layers, the sides are peeling etc. This is not what I would expect from shoes at this price. These shoes have not been worn excessively. If I had purchased these elsewhere, I would think they were a knockoff, they are not up to Reef quality or possibly Reef has slipped in quality. This was his first pair of Reefs, as he usually wore Nike. He won't be buying Reefs again.

I'd also recommend: anything but this one :)
