Just don't walk too far in them!
on 25 June 2012
I have had a pair of Reef Marbea's for a couple of years and used and abused them, but they keep on going and are as comfortable as the first day I wore them. This year when planning to come away for a few days in the sun I decided it was time to find something more suitable for the beach (the leather of the Marbea's never looked to good after being drenched in salt water so I figured a pair of Reef's synthetics would do the job...and they would if I hadn't tried to use them the same way as the Marbea's.
Let me explain, in the Marbea's I can walk for miles with no ill effects, but I did the same with these and the mesh lining of the straps wore a hole on the top of my feet. I had never intended to walk so far in them (6 miles) but have walked that distance in the others.
Do I think there is anything wrong these? No, I will keep them and use them on the beach, by the pool etc.
But I have just ordered another pair of Marbea's for the days when I will be on my feet all day long.
I have marked them as three stars to highlight the limitations I experienced with them.
