Reef

Reef Logo
Reef’s® 30-year heritage was born out of an idea by Fernando and Santiago Aguerre, entrepreneur brothers from South America with a love of surf and beach culture, to create a high-quality active lifestyle sandal. To bring their vision to life, the brothers moved to Southern California to manage the Reef brand, and they set up production in Sao Paulo Brazil in 1984, where they first produced the iconic sandal that made Reef the leader in open-toe footwear.

Inspired by the beautiful women of the beaches in South America, the brothers saw an opportunity to introduce the surf market to an exotic element that they called Miss Reef, who has become a global icon of the surfing community. Since then, the vibrant culture, imagery, and beautiful Reef girls of Latin America have been a part of Reef’s DNA.

Now 30 years later, the company is thriving as the global surf lifestyle brand that lives by the "Just Passing Through" mentality of surf adventure. Reef draws on the spirit of the global traveler to offer casual lifestyle footwear for men and women, as well as apparel for men that combines function and fashion for life on the road. Using technology and a host of eco-based materials inspired by Reef Redemption, Reef continually delivers instant comfort and exotic styling, and strives toward versatile and multi-functional products for the traveling surfer. The brand is also well known for an ambassador program that supports some of the best wanderers and waveriders around the globe.

Have never had a problem with with any of the Reef flip flops I've purchased (and I own a lot) but these seemed way too narrow. Honestly did't wear them enough to judge the comfort because they didn't fit properly. They were super cute though

Fit perfectly as ordered, look great and although they are probably my 10th pair of Reefs, I have never found a better brand. Only comment is the dumb bottle opener on the bottom should go away!

Along with this pair of sandals being the cheapest, I ordered two other pair. I needed something to lift me up so I didn't have to hem a pair of pants. I wanted to keep these and with all the good reviews I was sure I would, but compared to the other two pair these were the least comfortable. I walked around my house in them for a while and for me the thong was uncomfortable, I felt oddly stilty walking up stairs.

Cute shoes! I am a size 8, and they were too big. I ordered the Reef Rose ES (very similar shoe) in a 7 at the same time( only bc they were out of size 8) the 7 fit much better - definitely get a size smaller than you usually wear.

Cute boots, seem true to size but I needed a wider shoe. Support was minimal but size would allow an orthotic shoe support.

Bought these less than six months ago, used mostly only from pool to dressing room and the toe part completely broke off, so my daughter had to hobble around. I expected more from this brand and for this price. Do not buy!

I love my sandals! I originally ordered a size 9 which is my true foot size. Customer service (Taylor) helped explain that with sandals you should order one size bigger than your true size. That is helpful information for future purchases. Great product. Great service.

I bought these as a gift for my dad. He competes in swimming and also goes to the Yucatan quite a bit. He took these on a recent trip to Playa del Carmen and absolutely loved them. He bought his normal size and they fit well.

This flipflop did not work for me because of my high arches & tendency to have plantar fasciitis return. If you do not have these issues, it is perfect. It seems to meet the arch but is rather soft & does not provide enough support for me. It is a nice looking flipflop.

These are SO CUTE! Yes, it’s definitely more of a forest green than black, as other reviews mentioned. But you can tell from the picture and video what color it is - it matches on my screen anyway. They fit great, suede feels expensive, and the scotch-guard leather and rubber sole with traction are perfect for running around rainy Seattle. 10/10 would buy again!

I am in process of reordering one size up (from 12 to 13; larger sizes are whole rather than half) because this one feels a little too snug. I will have to see how this works out before I can truly determine if this shoe seems to run smaller.

I bought these shoes for my partner and he loves them, and wears them nonstop. They are the perfect fancy/casual shoe for when neither sneakers or dress shoes are appropriate. He also finds them comfortable for light hiking and other activities... although I don't think they're designed for that. I plan to re-order another pair when he wears through them!

Awful. I LOVE Reef flops. I own multiple pairs. The soles on these are very flimsy and the get caught if I happen to shuffle my feet and almost cause me to trip. Donated almost immediately.

I returned after less than 5 months of light use. Strap broke near the footbed. Very disappointed as I’ve worn Reef for over 35 years. Thank you, Zappos, for easy return.

I bought the shoes for my Mother. She liked the color but they kept slipping off. She said the back was not high enough and therefore the reason they slipped off. I have to say they were the wrong size.
