A BUYING GUIDE FROM REEF

BEST SPRING SANDALS 2022

Springtime is like beer-thirty on a Friday afternoon: full of promise and hope and getting our fun on with a vengeance. Along with spring comes being outdoors for all the things, so now's the time to find your best spring sandals.

We surfed through all of our customer reviews, our copious amounts of styles, and spring sandals trends for 2022, and we've pared them down to the top 12 picks in several categories. Consider it a little help from your friends at REEF, so you can take a walk on the styled side.

Most Comfortable Sandals

Of course we've got to start here, because ridiculous comfort is what REEF is all about. Topping this category is the men's
Santa Ana
and the women's Cushion Celine, both super comfortable sandals.

MEN'S

SANTA ANA

When you're ready for real comfort and premium materials, you'll want to catch the Santa Ana. These flip-flops feel amazing, thanks to a textured, contoured footbed, soft vegan leather straps, and high arch support. Santa Anas are the sandals that'll take you from all-day play to that nice restaurant she wants to try.

WOMEN'S

CUSHION CELINE

The women's comfort winner is the Cushion Celine. Made with a soft EVA sole and vegan leather straps, these are all-day comfy thong sandals with cute scalloped details. They're the perfect flat sandals for walking on the beach, date night, and everything in between.

Best Sandals for Vacation

Whether for vacay or stay-cay, a new pair of summer sandals elevates the season. Topping our list for trippy sandals (see what we did
there?) are the men's Fanning Slide and the women's trend leader, the Water Vista.

WOMEN'S

WATER VISTA

You might want to stop right here and snag a pair of Water Vistas, because they're super popular and are definitely among the TOP SANDALS trends for summer 2022. With cute espadrille-inspired detailing and an all-one-piece design that's waterproof, these mini platform sandals are the must-haves for vacay.

MEN'S

FANNING SLIDE

We took our legendary Fanning, named after surf champ Mick Fanning, and made it a must-have water-friendly slide sandal that's beyond comfortable. A molded EVA footbed with arch support and our famous built-in bottle opener take these poolside slides to next-level awesome.

Best Sandals for Day-to-Night Wear

Don't be that person who has to run back to the hotel or house to switch out your sandals for dinner. Not cool. Luckily we've found the ultimate versatile spring and summer sandals for you. Behold the Pacific LE and Vista Hi.

WOMEN'S

VISTA HI

Find your favorite color and grab a pair of these while you can, because they sell out of stock all the time. With a super cute chunky lug sole, the Vista Hi is one of our all-time best sellers. An amazing genuine cork top liner, full arch support, and soft vegan leather straps make these platform sandals a must-have for spring. Walk in comfort and style, from brunch to beach to beverages with your besties.

MEN'S

MEN'S PACIFIC LE

We know dudes prefer one or two great pairs of sandals that'll take them around the clock - and possibly the world - in total comfort, so trust the winner of this category, the Pacific LE. A hallmark of outstanding quality, these sandals feature full-grain leather on outlasted straps for pure comfort, along with arch support and a memory foam footbed. From surf check to dinner check, the Pacific LE is multi-talented.

Best Sandals for Party Time

While we're known for our ridiculous comfort, we're also infamous for our built-in bottle openers that grace a select iconic style, the Fanning. These are classic flip flops re-imagined. Get ready: you're about to become a walking happy hour.

WOMEN'S

FANNING

We're all-inclusive when it comes to party starters, so the WOMEN’S FANNING boasts all the legendary features of its male counterpart. A molded footbed, amazingly soft water-friendly straps, and the beloved built-in bottle opener on the bottom. You're welcome.

MEN'S

FANNING

Our MEN’S FANNING is named after surf champ MICK FANNING and encompasses everything awesome about beach life. Comfortable, water-friendly, and party-ready. A molded footbed, soft straps, and bottle opener in the sole add up to ultimate summer sandals.

Best Anti-tantrum Kids Sandals

No blisters, no battles to keep these sandals on little feet. Our top pick in this category is the Ahi, and it's definitely kid-approved.

BOYS

AHI

Made for all-day adventures, the Kids Ahi sandals feature instantly comfy straps and a soft EVA footbed. Rad prints make these even more wearable, all season long.

GIRLS

AHI

Rainbows, hearts, pineapples, ice cream, polka dots … they're all prints charming when it comes to the girls’ Kids Ahi. Best of all, soft water-friendly straps and super comfortable EVA footbeds make these an instant favorite.

Most Stylish Sandals for Teens 

We cracked the code for top teen spring and summer sandals. The Phantom and the Devynn are amazingly comfortable, both with a laid-back-yet-on-point style perfect for whatever the mood … including that "whatever" mood.

MEN'S

CUSHION PHANTOM

A compression-molded, comfortable footbed and EVA outsole make the Phantom an obvious choice for easygoing spring and summer sandals. Signature wide soft straps and that REEF style finish the look.

WOMEN'S

CUSHION DEVYNN

For the beachy fashionista, we designed a FLAT SANDAL WITH A TOUCH OF GLAM. On top of our soft EVA footbed is an antiqued metal detail, making these summer sandals like jewelry for your feet.

“I am in awe of being a woman. To me being a woman is being authentically oneself. As women, we are selfless in all aspects. Sharing our bodies and our hearts.From being a partner to being a mother. We are fiercely made, clothed in strength and dignity. We are simple yet perplexing, both beautiful yet flawed. Intent while also wild, elegant and masculine. We are courageous while careful. We are true creators and innate teachers, passed down from generations we evolve and adapt.We are patient and kind. We are understanding and forgiving. We are messes and masterpieces. We are unique in our own way but most importantly we are love and we are brave.”  - Sophie
