Do you wear Reef Flip Flops (thongs)?

Recommended Posts

I've worn this brand of flip flops for years. Recently I ordered a pair on-line from Jacks Surf Shop. At first I thought they were fine, they look just like every other pair I've owned. Well, a different color. Except I ordered the skinnier straps this time.

 

When I first started wearing Reefs they only came in one style (that I knew of anyway). They were the simple thick strip flip flop. Now they have skinny straps, bows and whatever. so I ordered the more feminine looking thin strap ones.

 

Anyways - they are turning my feet black. Both at the strap and the bottom of my foot. I thought it was just that they were new, and it would stop, but it hasn't. I've been wearing them for over a month, I've washed them by hand, they've been rained on, I've walked a million miles and still they are turning my feet black. Why??

 

Has reef changed their dye or something?

 

Does anyone else have this problem?

 

Also, they are drying my feet out more than normal. My heels have become so dry and cracked that they hurt. Any suggestions?

I live in sandles since i'm in so cali... hehe... i love "Rainbow Sandles".. they are great... the only thing is that it takes a few times wearing them to "break them in"....... but they do have a life time gurantee...

I have couple of pairs (the leather sole ones), but I don't think I noticed my feet turning black.

and as for cracking heels, it happens to me when I wear sandals a lot (especially in summer), so I would suggest soaking your feet and moisturizing them well.

I have heard of them, but I don't own a pair. Maybe call the company to see if they have any recommendations. It shouldn't be turning your feet black..

I LOVE Reef!!! I have like two pairs with thick straps, and 5+ pairs of thin straps. I like the thin straps, and I've been getting them at the shore for over five years... so they've been around for awhile... probably longer than that.

 

I don't think reef changed anything... my feet don't turn black, I don't know. Maybe it's because the thicker strap ones have thicker soles... maybe you need more of a platform type sole. I wish I could be more help... but i'm not sure.

I dont wear flip flops unless I am at home. If I go out and I want to show my feet I wear sandals or wedges.

 

I like my feet high up the ground and I hate the thought of my feet getting dirty, cracked or hardened.

I just bought a pair of dark brown low-platform Reefs and I'm not having this problem, but my feet do seem to be really dried out. They're really comfy, except that the first time I wore them they bruised the tops of my feet. That hasn't happened since. I also really want to try Rainbows.

LOL If I were in the U.S. that would be an easy solution. But the selection of Flip-flops here is a little weak. I actually had to order them on-line, shipped to my father-in-law (in Florida) than he brought them here for me. I've worn the brand for years, 10 years! And never had a problem until now. I'm sure it is just a defect and not the brand, but I can't buy another pair until I get home - and that isn't for another 3 to 6 months.

 

They are better than trying to wear some of the plastic things sold here.

 They turn my feet black too! The thin strap ones. My feet are black at the sole and at the straps!

    • Thank you Edith
    • You are a very thoughtful husband. I'm not an expert on makeup. But I love shopping. I was impressed with Sisley brushes, which are made by Raphael. Raphael has been a master maker of brushes for artists since 1793. The big department stores will give you an extra gift with purchase now too. For example, if you buy from Neiman Marcus, you can get a nice bag filled with beauty samples for free. That's what I would do.  I also love Trinny London. The T Kit is very unique, compact and great for travel or purse. Estee Lauder has a beautiful limited edition set called Brushed by Fame. The lovely white marble design might look pretty with your bathroom decor.  Good luck with your purchase!
