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.

    Comfier straps than expected. Quality of product is good. When people say it runs small it just seems to me that the straps are a little tight, the length has no change from any other of my sandals. Had a hiccup on delivery but customer service was on point, thank you Konrad.

    Good slippers, I’d order a size up though, they seem to run slightly small.

    Built tough... Too tough

    Posted by Erik Johnson on 22nd May 2021

    I bought a pair of these, after wearing completely through two pairs of the scamp sandals, thinking they were the same thing. The build quality on these is amazing, don't get me wrong. However, the footbeds are significantly denser than the previous flops, and have rubbed the soles of my feet completely raw. The straps also feel tighter, and have left blisters on the inside strap side. I really miss the scamps. I think I would recommend a size larger than what you normally wear.

    We Will See How It Goes

    Posted by Brandon Kehoe on 26th Apr 2021

    Just received them. They don't seem as comfortable as my original pair was when I received them, but hopefully after a break in period, they will be just as good. They seem very stiff. USPS dropped the ball so it took some time to receive, but that isn't on the SKD team.

    Order a size up. I wear a 12 in almost everything and had to get a 13 for this sandal. Super comfortable and seem well built so far.
