This is a Slippers pair Reef X-S Male (Reef Men’s X-S Flip Flop), acquired on Amazon two Americas. Made of synthetic nubuck, with rubber soles, finger strip and excellent cushioning system with air bag for heel.
In the sole there is a bottle opener (not, you did not read wrong). Someone found it important to have a bottle opener to shame. I never had need to use it, but also does not bother me at all, then… 🙂
And I decided to buy a pair of slippers imported? Well, first advance that do not give a damn about brands. The Reef is a famous designer surfware. And surfing is one of my favorite activities, not only. Also because I know not swim. Since I am not goer rolezinho, ostentation is not me, then designer is something that basically serves to endear unnecessarily products. But for medical reasons should I use only shoes with heels (Thank fasciitis plantar!).
In short, to get rid of a pain in the foot (and prevent it back in the future) I use only shoes and shoes with shock. But when I'm home I do not like to wear shoes, much less shoe. But my slippers: Havaianas, Cartago, Speedo, etc. everyone has straight soles, without any increase or damping. There were once some Rider who had there one amortecedorzinho heel, I even had a, but they have left line for a long time, and my been to the heaven of slippers for a long time. My search for slippers with heel / damper in Brazil was unsuccessful, except for very few obscure shops where I found the Reef slippers.
And if designer products are already expensive anywhere in the world, so imagine the country taxes and ostentatious rolezeiros. A pair of slippers equal to this expense in Brazil in the range of US $ 300,00, and all this even without great choices of colors and numbering. My number not found, in any color, in any store.
That's when I decided to seek the civilized and developed world and there found Slippers pair Reef X-S Male (Reef Men’s X-S Flip Flop) for less than half the price, which would guarantee me the payment of a lower value than Brazil, even bearing all abusive third-world taxes the owner Dilma.
Read the good reviews, chose the model / color that I liked, converted my Brazilian numbering for the US and the number 11 seemed the most appropriate. And served straight. I just bypassing the Shipito on account of the cheap shipping Amazon, who had offsetting the higher tax that I would probably pay. Furthermore, the sooner I started using it would be better to solve my problem.
I ended up purchasing the Slippers pair Reef X-S Male (Reef Men’s X-S Flip Flop), together with Logitech HD Pro Webcam C920, 1080p Widescreen Video Calling and Recording, of which I will speak at another time, when she get my hands. Although I selected the cheapest shipping and in a single shipment, a Amazon ended up sending (at own cost them) the camera before the iParcel, and the Slippers pair Reef X-S then by DHL. A courtesy Amazon certainly occurred to me to receive before the product was already in stock. But, although Slippers pair Reef X-S have been sent a few days later, he eventually came well before, because DHL is much faster than the iParcel.
And the package arrived in just 3 calendar days! Fortunately the Slippers pair Reef X-S Male is not only designer. The slippers are very soft and comfortable, the insole is very soft and the damper actually works. Do not worry or hurt the foot. The insole also has anti-slip and water drainage system.
Ultimately, I was very pleased and now just hope it lasts quite. Check out some photos from the Slippers pair Reef X-S Male:
