About this deal

Compared to some of the nicer flops we tested, however, there are many characteristics (or the lack of) that pale in comparison.

Cushion Phantom - Black

The low-density sole and footbed will certainly wear quicker than some of the higher quality offerings we tested. While this isn't an issue at the beach, it does feel slippery on other surfaces like hardwood flooring, carpet, or rock.They moved to Southern California to manage the Reef brand and produce the iconic sandal that made Reef what it is today.

However, they do retain water for quite a while after getting drenched, which significantly detracted from the wet environment comfort. If you're heading to the beach and just want a solid flip flop that won't let the thong rip out of the footbed, then these could be a good option.That being said, if all you're doing is cruising from the condo to the beach and back, it'll be years before they break down. Reef was founded in 1984 by two brothers from Argentina, Fernando and Santiago Aguerre, who wanted to share their love for surf travel and beach culture with the world.

To sum up the Phantoms in a few words, they are light, simple, comfortable, and suitable for anyone who needs to scoop up a pair of affordable flip flops before their beach vacation. Overall the synthetic nubuck straps are comfortable and offer the right about of snugness, not being too tight or loose. They are lacking in durability, but will certainly hold up better than bargain bin flops from wall-e-world.The injection-molded EVA footbed provides a medium to high arch and is exceptionally plush right out of the box. If you're wanting to have an all-around flip flop capable of spending time on rocky trails and at the beach, these might not be the top pick.
