Reef Fanning Low: The Sports and Bottle opening Flip Flop | The Board Basement
The Board Basement stocks an extensive range of Reef flip flops for all your adventures. The Reef Fanning has been a firm favourite at The Board Basement for several years now, a summer staple for everyone’s wardrobe. The new Fanning Low features a lower profile footbed, with a slimmer strap, for a slightly scaled down version of the Original Fanning.
The Fanning is the ultimate sports flip flop, launched in 2004 by surf legend Mick Fanning. Like him, these flip flops are capable of taking on the world, as one of the comfiest, most supportive flip flops on the market. The Fanning, however, is quite chunky, so Reef have created the all new Fanning Low, a slimmer profile version of the Fanning to accommodate for people who want a slightly lighter weight design.
The Fanning is built for someone who wants to adventure not just on the beach, but over rocky, unstable terrain, taking on new challenges and pushing the boundaries of surf footwear. If you’re looking for a beach ready flip flop that you can also wear for long walks in the park, the Fanning could be for you. Perfect for travelling, exploring a new place or chilling by the pool, the Fanning is the supreme flip flop for adventurers.
As a stripped down version of the Fanning, the Low still has all of the awesome Fanning features we know and love. The Fanning Low comes as standard with a super comfy liner, perforated for breathability and padded for comfort. The footbed is high rebound molded EVA, with a 350-degree heel airbag. Of course, the most important feature remains: Thirst Quenching Technology - perfect for cracking open cold bottles at BBQs.
Picture this. You’re enjoying a burger on a warm summer evening, sat around with your mates, when someone asks for a bottle opener. You don’t want to get up from your comfy spot by the BBQ and start scrabbling around your kitchen drawers. So you lean back, reclined in your garden chair, and pop open the bottle with your flip flop. Everyone is blown away, you’re immediately the coolest guy at the party and you’re still chilling in your chair, enjoying your summer evening. Perfect.
Reef pride themselves on three key features: support, comfort and traction. The Fanning is supported by its super cushioned air pocket heel, meaning no heel ache when you’re wearing these flip flops for extended periods of time. The upper construction is synthetic material with hot melted overlay, which means less stitching -i.e less rubbing and greater comfort. For the outer sole, Reef has employed a molded rubber for increased traction over longer periods of time.
The Fanning Low crucially reduces bulk from the original Fanning, so if you like the design but find it a little chunky, the slim and subtle Fanning Low is for you. The Fanning Low is the ultimate go-everywhere do-everything machine, perfect at home on the beach, at festivals, evenings, weekends and everywhere in between. Reef has taken away the limitations on flip flops, which had traditionally banned them from the category of ‘proper footwear’, relegated to the job of taking the bins out or gathering dust in holiday cases. Now, equipped with a pair of Fanning Lows, you can take on any adventure life throws at you.
