The Fanning men's flip flops from Reef are a true classic offering a comfortable, water-friendly synthetic nubuck upper, a contoured compression molded EVA footbed with an anatomical arch support, a full 360 degree heel airbag enclosed in a soft polyurethane, a chuck key to open your "soda" bottle, and the Reef icon herringbone rubber outsole. Reef's twenty-five year heritage traces back to two brothers from Argentina, Fernando and Santiago "Santi" Aguerre. Fueled by their passion for surfing, and armed with a unique entrepreneurial spirit, the brothers acted on an idea to create a high quality, comfortable, active lifestyle sandal. Attracted to the Southern California lifestyle, Santi moved to California in the early 80's and would shortly be reunited with his brother. Fernando graduated from Law School, and headed to La Jolla to help co-found Reef. With $4000 working capital, hard work, dedication and some savvy marketing ideas, the brothers built Reef into the #1 sandal brand.
