Freewaters Breach Bums (SKD Exclusive)

by Joe
If you’re not a flip-flop guy, read no further. If you are into the flip-flop lifestyle, then say hello to the most comfortable pair you’ll own. We first contacted Freewaters for the fact that they had a licensed Thermarest footbed. We were subsequently sold on Freewaters not only for their high quality, but also their contributions to clean water for developing nations. Freewaters allows you be tacticool while helping mankind have access to clean water.

    I wear flip flops a lot. I have weird feet so most flip flops don't fit right. These have been the most comfortable and best fitting I have found. The Thermorest is not real squishy like a lot of flip flops but still comfortable. They fit true to size. I doubt you'll be disappointed.

    Beach Bums

    Posted by EL Heffe Drops A Teabag on 27th Jun 2023

    2nd pair from SKD on these. Best flip flops I've ever found. Durable, supportive and are surprisingly dense for being so light. I have huge brutal thorns on my property that have gone. Through some "tough" footwear. Not these tanks. Buy 'em

    Not bad, but I want my Scamps back

    Posted by MP_in_TX on 5th Jun 2023

    I had a pair of Scamps from waaay back. They were so slick on the bottom I nearly ate it on a tile floor so I decided it was time for a new pair. Kinda bummed they don't make them anymore but figured these were an upgrade. Verdict: mehh. They seem comfortable enough. Comically small, though. I always wear a 10.5, sometimes a 10. Narrow/normal feet. I ordered an 11 and I'm still wondering if I should send them back. They are small not just in length, but the straps are tight. Even looking at it the straps look short/small. Fingers crossed the footbed compacts and the straps stretch a little.

    These run small

    Posted by JM on 9th May 2023

    These are much more comfortable than combat flip flops, however they run a size small. A size 11 in beach bums is about a size 10 in combat flip flops.

    Best Flips Ever

    Posted by Travis on 2nd May 2023

    Love these. I've had them for about 3 weeks now, and I have taken my crocs out of rotation. Not saying that you can wear these like regular shoes, but I have run in them, made some agility moves (not anything big, but cutting and running while playing with the dog), and can go in and out of water with them. Super comfortable from the perspective of a bare foot runner/lifter. Definitely a 5 star.

    These are really comfortable flip-flops, they started out tight in the strap area, but after a couple of days the straps loosened up. I have elfin feet and wear a 8.5 mens, got the size 9, fit was perfect. I will buy these again, they are the bomb diggity!

    I got these for a family vacation at a waterpark, and having worn them all day for a week my only complaint is the camouflage strap is hard to find, but maybe that’s just because it’s camouflage
