Yes, you found it fellow smooshy sandal lovers, this is a soft sandal. I was lloking for a smooshy sanal forever because the Mush 2 sucks, and Reef stopped making good sandals (I have owned at least 50 pairs of Reefs so i know of what i speak).
so here's what they (predictably) don't tell you since manufacturers, universally, seem incapable of talking about their own products ina meaningful way:
Yes, size runs at least one full size large. I am a 11 for most mens shoes, i got a size 12 and it fit, only just actually.
They are nice and fat - the footbed is almost exactly one inch thick.
The thong thingy does not stand on it's own, it flops like most sandals but if you take care how you store your sandal they will kinda stay up. that's one thing i liked about most of my reefs was that you could get ina nd out of them really fast and not hacve to toe the thingy up.
Arch support is kinda minimal but i don't care about that. It's odd cuz when u look at sandal it seems like there is a huge amount of material in the arch area but it does not extend far enough under the foot to actually create any arch support. likei said, i dn't care but they clearly blew the poodle on that one.
the footbed almost has a fuzzy look and feel to it. It's not a smooth surface, basically they roughed it up. they didn't need to do this, i wonder why they did, it will just collect dirt and foot juice but eventually, i am sure, it will wear away.
they are massively lightweight, and i am sure they float, havn't tested.
i havn't worn long so if they don't last, or if they smoosh down too much, etc, you'll hear from me but so far, soo very good.
