Reef Sandals + Shoes For Every Type of Dad (Win!)

May 26, 2022

Founded by two active beach-loving kids in the coastal town of Mar Del Plata, Argentina, Reef footwear was made to match their love of the ocean. The innovations and ideals that started with the brothers in 1984 have evolved into the Reef brand we love today—a symbol of freedom that comes from living comfortably, happy and close to nature. Each shoe is made from 100 per cent recycled materials and has eco foams, and natural materials. Reef also makes some stellar styles for Father’s Day gifting, including our top picks below. —Vita Daily

for the fun dad. This is the sandal ($80) of legendary three-time world champ and perennial pro surfing powerhouse, Mick Fanning, the ultimate athletic sandal of comfortable water-friendly synthetic nubuck upper. Mick relies on the contoured injection molded Eva footbed with anatomical arch support and full 360-degree heel airbag enclosed in soft poly for good reason. And in the fun department, it also features a churchkey built into the footbed to open your soda after a surf or hanging at the pool. Reef Icon Herringbone rubber outsole. The sandals of a champion.

for the golfer/sports dad. Mind if we play through? The Mulligan ($70) is a Reef mens sandal or slide inspired by days on the links. It features synthetic golf ball textured upper with Reef tee, tee holder, and 19th-hole flag. Polyester woven liner, bottle opener, and synthetic fairway footbed with molded golf ball logo. Anatomical arch support, moulded high-density EVA outsole.

for the laidback dad. Up your level of comfort and style with the Cushion Coast Mid ($90). Reef took the advanced cushioning support of its sandals and put it in an easy-on, easy-off shoe, with an ankle height, stretch laces, and a lightweight EVA outsole. Definitely dialled in for dad.

Win! 2 Pairs Of Reefs For Dad!
