    These were very good sandals while they lasted. Mine lasted ~ten & one half months. The outer side strap on my right one became unattached from the sole - all three foci. It looks like they might have been glued. I did get them wet a couple of times. Mine cost U$42.31. I think I should have gotten more out of them than that. I can buy a lot of rubber flip flops for that money.

    I bought a pair of these sandals in February 2005 and am still wearing them. Like any sandal, they are fun and easy to wear. Just recently I've noticed that the front part of the soles has worn down and they are smooth now. Also the foam bed has started to crack in several places, but for the price I'd say I've gotten reasonable use out of them.

    The bottle opener is a great conversation piece. Also rest assured, they do hold up to wear and tear. I was skeptical when I bought these how long they'd stay intact, but I can attest that they are still in and functional... kinda mangled, but still intact and functioning.

    Also, if you think you're just gonna swing your leg up and crack open a beer like Mr. Joe Cool, then think again. I remember when I first got these I was at a backyard house party while in San Diego. I was flirting with these two girls, talkin' my game and trying to be smooth. So I grab another beer, and while talking to them, I lift my foot and try to crack the bottle open. Well, between trying to keep my balance and get the lip of the cap in the opener, I apparently shook it up a bit. When I finally did open it, the resulting explosion of foam shot all over me and the two girls. Not cool.

    I would suggest taking the sandal off to use the bottle opener feature.

    All and all, a great shoe. Fun and easy to wear.

    Another tip: Make sure you wash these every so often! Stick 'em in the washing machine. I neglected to do this and developed a nasty case of athlete's foot from them. Just a heads up. Enjoy!

    Alone. On the streets of Playa, searching for size 5 Pampers, I longed for refreshment and inspiration. Spotting a corner bodega, I determined that a cervaza was the only remedy. After making my purchase and setting out renewed on my mission, I realized my fatal error. The cap did not twist off. Distraught, I accepted it was not meant to be...it was then that I remembered the hidden church key in the bottom of my Fanning Sandals (Men Sizes 4-15). My mission and my faith were saved.

    I absolutely abuse my sandals. I live in a 3rd world country and wear my sandals every single day. Walking in dirt, mud, & rocks. I drive in them, ride a motorcycle in them, play soccer & basketball in them. If any sandal I wear makes it more than a month it is not cheap. I had been using Oakley's in the past and they make it about a year. I made the switch to Reef three months ago, so here is my assessment so far.

    Comfort- very comfortable though a bit too thin in the front part, I can feel the rocks much more as I walk over them on the ball of my foot. They break in quickly.

    Durability- decent so far but I have noticed that they really have stretched out a bit and my foot is sliding forward, I would recommend a half size or full size smaller than what you are used to, it may be awkward at first but you will slide into them better in the end. I end up getting sucked into a soccer game nearly everyday and play in 8" of gravel. Holding up nicely.

    Looks- I had the black pair which were beautiful when they arrived, but after just two days in the conditions I subject them to they absorbed all the dust and dirt and turned grey, no fault of Reef of course. It wears a bit wide all around compared to my previous sandals, I felt like I had a clown shoe on for a few days before I got used to it.

    Function- The bottle opener is an absurd idea. I used it once when it was brand new out of the box just to say I used it, but seriously, I know of at least a dozen countries where if you open someones drink with the bottom of your shoe you could get yourself killed with such an insult. How is the bottom of shoe a good idea for putting on the rim of what you are about to stick in your mouth. And is it necessary to have one on each shoe?

    As if there is another flip flop could offer the style, comfortable, and mobility of the Mick Fanning sandal. The leather version of a very popular sandal is exactly what any avid wearer would appreciate.

    The sandal is sleek and looks good on a well maintained foot. They are true to size so if you wear a 12, order the 12.

    Overall, you cannot and will not go wrong with this great sandal. It hugs the foot very well, provides great heel support, and the church-key hidden perfectly in the sole will be a great topic of any party or gathering. Great job with the development of a great flip flop that even the snobbiest would find pleasure to sport.

    Comfortable sandals to step into. I thought I was really going to like them at first, but I have found that if I do a lot of walking in them (30 min +) the strap over my left foot starts digging into my skin making it painful to walk in, and taking a few days afterwards to heal.
    Don't know if it's a common problem or just a defect in the sandal.
