"like walking on a cloud, but the sole texture wears quick."
Let me just say, I bought a pair of these in another color in another store, got them home and immediately hopped online and bought another pair. They were that comfy. However, the jute webbing on the bottom of the sole is going to wear out very quickly so don't get any fantasies about that giving you any sort of tread. If anything, it's going to make linoleum type floors quite slick until you wear through it. They also run a little big. I went down a half size, probably could have gone down a full size just because I have narrow heels and my heels slip out.
I purchased these shoes because of the cushioning inside and I had heard that Reef products are very comfortable. I have narrow feet with high arches, and it is hard to find casual flat shoes that are comfortable. These support my arches and they don't rub or dig into the back of my heel which is usually a problem for me with flats. I definitely recommend this product if you're looking for comfy shoes and do a lot of walking. I just wish they made more colors!
I just got these shoes today and am SO happy. I was hesitant about ordering shoes without trying them on, but I am so glad I did. They feel wonderful! I'm an 8.5 and they fit my foot just right. The bumpy insoles are cushy, not annoying like I thought they might be. There is good arch support as well. I love the style and they are so comfortable I will be taking these on our trip to Europe ( a.k.a. Walkfest 2013)The tag line for Reef says " Ridiculously comfortable." This is just my first pair, but I agree!
