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.

    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

    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.

    Great flops

    Posted by Joel Hopper on 13th Sep 2020

    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.

    Great sandals, run small

    Posted by Colton Rossi on 12th Sep 2020

    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.

    Super Cushy and great all day sandal/slipper

    Posted by Zac on 17th Jul 2020

    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.
