So after ten years, My pair finally broke. The strap pulled loose from the footbed. I wore them every single day for years, and then wore them every day as a lifeguard until they broke. On the pro, these things are the most comfortable things under your feet that you can have when you're walking on a pool deck or around a waterpark for eight hours. The only complaint I had was that after their first year at the pool (they were six years old at this point) the suede really didn't like the chlorine and got hard as a rock, which eventually caused mild chafing and irritation the strap also hangs onto water, which can get cold if your feet only get damp. Eventually it softened again, but it was never able to be worn all-day again after that, without chafing. The footbed is insanely comfortable and supportive, and the traction is awesome. Ten years of wear and they still barely looked worn.

Overall, the strap fits well and the sandals don't move around, the footbed is perfect and the only thing that slightly lets this otherwise perfect lifeguard shoe down is the strap hanging onto water and getting cold, and causing chafing.

I replaced these with a pair of the zilch sandals, and despite loving those too, this old dinosaur of a sandal really will be remembered fondly.

I gave the broken old ones to my puppy, and she still hasn't managed to inflict any real harm to these things.

I had a pair of Teva flops that lasted for 8 years. I don't know the name of the style, but the number on the tag is 6876. I love those!! Time came to get a new pair and NOTHING I can find compares to my old pair. I tried these Katavi's and they are ok. Still wish I could find something truly comparable to my old pair.

    Comments about Teva Men's Katavi Thongs, Bungee Cord, 8:

    I bought this thong decades ago and wore it forever. Two years ago Teva opened a retail outlet in Santa Barbara and my brother-in-law and I went to visit. We were excited to see the thong we had so loved all those years ago and each purchased a pair. I wear them out to dinner, to the beach, to the movies. They're like my dress shoes as well. If I have one complaint both our pairs blew out in two years. But, we put a lot of miles on them.

      I enjoy the comfort I get from the shoe. I only hope it dose not fall apart like my last pair. I don't wear them out as I only wear them occasionally. I try to stay out of water and sand while wearing them.

          Great to carry on a backpacking trip to use for day hikes around base camp. Light weight with great support and cushioning. Extremely comfortable. Good traction for modest trails. Although only a thong, holds onto the foot well.
