Freewaters Breach Bums (SKD Exclusive)
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.

Sizing Note: We've had several customers indicate that these sandals are running on the small side. If you are concerned about this or are in between two sizes, please consider ordering the next size up and refer to the following data for the actual length of the sandal:
|Size||Length (inch)||Length (cm)|
I had the scamps previously and these are much thicker more like the Teva Mush, but not as spongy as the Tevas in a good way. Tight until the footbed contours to your foot. I wear a 10.5 and bought the 11. 12 would have been too big. Fit for me is snug, but heel stays on the shoe. Therma-Rest footbed makes these a great pair of recovery flops.
We need some bigger sizes... I have a half dozen older Freewaters in 14's that I wear around like slippers. Unfortunately, these 13's (biggest size) fit like 11.5-12's... I'll have to play with them more but I don't think these are going to stretch out enough to "make work". A dam shame... Truly.
Last.mouth I got my FCPC5 .. Got into the Black multicam gang.... Had to get some footwear for off time...
The green foot beds are the MC tropic ones if that's what you are looking for. I added a note to my order and SKD expertly got me the ones I wished. As some have been saying they are sized what I would call tight, which is awesome for breaking in and this happens quickly. I'm a 11.5-12 depending on shoes and the 12 fits me great. The new thicker footbed is awesome though I do miss the Scamp's (previous SKD/Freewater collab) simplicity.
Great quality and seem comfortable. They do run small so go up a size.
Really like the Tropic colors the best. The fit is on the small size for me and my wife, I recommend ordering a size bigger than what you wear. Wish they made them in 14. Very comfortable I love wearing them outside around the pool.
These rock, thick comfortable soles!
Awesome foot wear for lounging around in and just wear around the yard or to run into town. I like the way the feel compared to the scamp sandals. These feel better on the feet and they have meat on them and not as thin as the scamp sandals. I wear mine all over the place and I've had others ask me where I got them from so hopefully ya'll will be getting some more orders for these. I'll be ordering few more pair as I like to rotate them out so as not to wear out one set.
These are the best flip flops ever. My only gripe is that you were out for a while so I ended up buying some conventional Freewaters on their site.... I wish I'd known these were coming.
