I have white, black, animal print, sapphire blue and grey and they are 100% more comfortable and long lasting than the cheap ones and worth every cent.
I have neuropathic pain in my feet and these are to me like  walking on cushions.

My black and white ones are 3 years old and going strong.

I am amazed people have more than one pair of thongs at a time :lol:

I wear havianas,  have so for many years.
Would never think to buy a cheap pair of thongs,  I normally have two pairs on the go and they last a few years,  wearing any time I’m not at work or the occasional nice dinner.
I find them very comfortable.

I like these, super comfortable and great arch support. I usually wear a 37 and am a 39 in these (I bought them from my Physio so could try them on).

I love mine and live in them. I find the cheaper ones rub between my toes.
Mine last years and I wear them all year round.

Thanks so much everyone.  There is a sale on Ozsale at the moment so thought I would ask the questions. Might check out the other ones too.
Cheers

Tried these and the arch was too high and too tough for me and my feet ached from wearing them.

yeh i have a couple, they’re great. although i busted a plug on my normal every day black ones - so now i’m schlepping around in my older son’s - which is scary that they fit!

Love them.

I have bought the kids cheapie ones and they curled and hardened quickly. They were given havis and haven’t looked back.

They look similar to the Slappa's I have, though my arch doesn't seem as high.

Love them!

Went to Hawaii (over 10 years ago) with cheap kmart ones, that hurt my feet on the first day with all the walking I did.

Bought some Havi's cheaply there, and have never gone back to cheapys.

They are thicker, have thicker straps, and wear better. No blowouts.

I have black, silver, black with copper straps, purple and also a green pair.

I'm really sad I can't live in havianas anymore due to unrelated reason.

I've had 2 x custom colour pairs that DH ordered for me,  b&w print with black straps,  black with glossy white straps, plain black,  bright green,  bronze,  silver,  white. That's all I can remember. Super comfy.

I have a pair  of rip curl thongs, I like them they are the next best thing to being barefoot, really flexible so they move with my foot.  They are the only things in a surf shop that fit me now days lol.

My family bought me a pair for Christmas because they find it amusing that I never wear flip-flops due to my feelings about Feet.

They have gold straps and the sole is more like the sole of a sandal.

They are tolerable around the house. This is a big statement for me.

I have a pair of Birkies as well. Agree - love them. Have had them for about 10 years, wear them heaps and still going strong.  Looking at Havies for more casual wear and for camping and beach stuff.

Our dog likes the density of Havianas.....

Best comment ever :D

Back On topic I have heard there are different 'grades' of havianas. There are ones you can get in the reject shop and they aren't the same grade as the ones in surf shops or so Im told.

I only wear thongs for showering when we go camping or to the pool though so Im not an expert.

my birks disintegrated quickly and the repair job didn't hold.

I only own one pair of rubber thongs, a pair of Havi's that are about 6 years old.  So not an expert either.

They haven't compressed at all, and I find them a good fit, they fit snugly to my foot and don't flap around.

I just checked at the back door and I have 6 pairs on the go.
One pair each of Archies and Slappas as my flash going to town thongs, 2 pars of Havianas of varying ages for around the yard, an old pair of cheapies for feeding the chooks in and the pair for my car (for changing out of my work boots).
There's also a seldom used pair at the front door, we don't use the front door very much.

I love my arch support thongs, I'm a recent convert.

How do you feed the chooks wearing thongs?  My chooks would peck my feet if I was wearing thongs while I was in their yard.
