With summer finally sizzling away, it’s time to treat your feet to a fresh pair of flip flops. Some of the hottest summer shoes on the streets right now are the Reef Fannings. These are a firm favourite with The Board Basement, ye-old faithful that we stock each year. This years Reefs have not disappointed. They company has managed to create yet another awesome Fanning range………

 Mens Reef Fannings

Reef was founded in a great year, 1984 (also the year that Torvill and Dean won gold at the Olympics, Thomas The Tank Engine came to our screens AND Prince Harry was born). Reef was started by two brothers from Argentina. They LOVED surfing and the beach life and wanted to create a sandal that could keep up with them. With this active and adventurous ethos in mind, they came up with Reef flip-flops; a relaxed shoe that can encompass all of the above and much more. Reef sandals oozed free-spirit to everyone who wore them.

35 years on now and Reef just keeps giving, coming up with new designs and technologies every season. They are now one of the leading brands in the active sandal industry, really popular amongst water sports enthusiasts and beach goers.

The Fanning flip flop has been inspired by the 3 times world champ and just all-round surfing boss, Mick Fanning. The Reef Fanning is the ultimate athletic sandal. It is water friendly, ultra-comfortable, durable and supportive. It has a contoured injection EVA moulded footbed with anatomical arch support. The heel has a 360-degree airbag enclosed in soft poly. It also has a padded jersey liner, synthetic nubuck upper and herringbone rubber outsole.  

 Reef Fannings Men

The 2019 range of Reef Fannings at The Board Basement have landed and we are STOKED with them. There is a HUGE selection of colours to suit anyone and everyone’s style and steeze for men and women.

We also stock the Reef Fanning Low; a slimmer, lower profile version of the original Fanning for a less bulky sleeker look. This does not compromise on comfort however and still hits high scores with a comfy liner that is padded and perforated for breathability.

If you’re the type of person that breaks the “flip-flop-seal” in Spring, then wears the same pair everyday until October, then a Fanning is 100% the shoe for you. Durable and adaptable, they will see you through those busy summer days. One shoe for everything! If you are planning to spend half of the year in the same pair of shoes then you want to make sure they are some good ones. Reef flip flops give you more support and are less prone to injury/ bad posture so are actually a lot safer than your regular flip flops. They are made of high-quality material to prevent rubbing and moulded rubber to increase traction and prevent slipping. Never will you have so much confidence in a flip flop!
