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.

These are amazing! Wow on the arch support and they are super cute! I haven't been able to wear flip flops in years because of plantar fasciitis and post tibial tendonitis. I'm so excited to be able to wear flip flops in summer and to the pool again!

I have a wider foot and typically wear a size 10, these 11’d fit perfectly and are super comfy! I tried another pair (also size 11 by reef) with a thinner strap and it looked like my foot was trying to eat my shoe! But these are so comfortable and I love them!

I love the way the "cushion bounce" feels on my foot: the little bit of arch support and the soft cushy sole is much appreciated. I usually buy flip flops new each year, because the sole wears down so quickly. Let's see how long the supportive arch and cushy feel lasts. If you are a half-size usually, I recommend going up to the next whole size. I am a 9.5 so the 10 fits perfectly.

Again I find myself frustrated with flip flops that are only made for those with normal or wider feet. These feel off my feet. My feet are a 5.5N and these felt a bit long and very wide. Reef, please remember not everyone has wider feet and we need shoes too!

Nice soft feel, bought for the arch support, and webbing between the toes is gentle. The critique I have is that the color rubs onto the bottom of my feet. Skin colored would have been a better choice for me.

These were my favorite flip flops. I wear a size 15 and had to wear the largest size Reef offeres. However, it seems that Reef has changed the way they size the flip flops sometime between 2015 such that you would need to order a full size bigger to get the same fit. That means I'm out of luck since 15 is as big as they go. They are obviously smaller when doing a side-by-side comparison with my older flip flops and are the same length as size the 14s my friend owns. Reef, why would you change the manufacturing process to make your sandles fit a full size smaller than before? That is annoying for people who buy from you regularly. In my case, I went from wearing my Reefs evereywhere to being completely unable to wear them.

Whew! These shoes are extremely narrow. The bottom is made out of flip-flop like material and offer little in the way of comfort or support. I can't believe they audacity to include the word "cushion" in the name. They look and feel cheap. I would be surprised if these held up to any real use or lasted much longer than a season. At the price point, I'm not expecting anything fancy, but I would expect something a little bit nicer than a glorified pair of uncomfortable slides.

I used to wear Reef sandals all the time. The last two pairs I bought broke before 6 months of use. They used to last up to 2 years and I would wear the soles out from use. Its sad because I really do love them and these were so comfortable. I am in the market for a new pair of flip flops and will be branching out from Reef. Sad day.

I love this style of Reefs and have purchased them for many years. I love the thin strap that fits comfortably between my toes. My pair from several years ago was chewed up by a puppy so I purchased two more new pairs. My only regret is that Reef has changed the material in the footbed from one that was a little bit more crepe-like to one a little more stiff. I'm sure they will last longer but don't seem to conform to my foot as well as the my old ones. The brown and black are great colors that will go with everything. I like Reefs for the gym locker room and pool, for the beach and everything in between!

My husband has "dainty" feet. Haha. He just likes lots of support and he has a hard time finding casual Shoes that he finds esthetically pleasing AND support his feet. These are perfect! I ordered him the khakis to try and he loves them so much, im ordering 2 more pairs as backups!

The bottoms of these shoes are very hard. Also, the right shoe was narrower than the left. I’ve worn Reefs for years and never had that issue.

These are such cute flip flops, both the black and white. I wear a 9 in all shoes but these were extremely tight. I compared them to the width of an old pair of Reefs and these were much narrower. What happened to Reefs just always having the right fit? I miss those shoes
