Sanuk, with their second iteration for the previous Beer Cozy, has produced a comfortable, stylish flip flop for those people looking for a cozy, sandal. The Cozy 2 is one of the flip flops we tested that was super comfortable right out of the box; almost too comfortable. If you're looking for a firm flip flop with a lot of support, this might not be the model for you. The footbed, made out of the same material as a yoga mat, is ultra-soft and the foot sinks deep into it, which is an odd feeling for those of us used to a stiffer footbed. That being said, we wore these flops on short hikes on the way to climbing, on beach days, to music festivals, and trips to the local watering hole. They performed well during the more casual outings but struggled a little bit when taken into steep, uneven terrain.
If soft and friendly straight of the box is what you're into, this flop might be for you. Meanwhile, for a flop in the same category, but with a slightly beefier build, we'd recommend the Reef Phantom. If traction, support, and longevity are supreme, take a look at the award winning OluKai Ohana or the Chaco Flip EcoTread.
