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.

      I wear sandals every second of the day that I can in all kinks of weather. These are the toughest sandals I've ever had. I've had 2 pairs in the last 5+ years I think. I could probably wear these another summer if I pushed it but they are just too dirty at this point. They'll still be backups. If they ever stop making these I will be sad

          I use them inside my home only. They do make a little more flip flop sound on our hardwood floors than my last pair so far. They are just as comfortable as the last pair.I prefer my Teva sandals for outside wear.

            This was my second pair of these thongs. The last ones lasted a very long time and are still structurally sound. I have problems with one of my feet and can't wear just any shoe. These are great and feel very good on my feet even if I wear them all day.

                    I am fortunate enough to live in Florida, so I wear these all the time. I need a shoe/sandal with a lot of cushion and arch support, and over the years of having many different brands, I believe these sandals are probably the best I will ever find.

                    The bottom line is, I like them enough that I have already bought a replacement pair for the sandals I currently wear.

                    All in all, a great product.

                      I've bought three pairs of these sandals over the years, and they wear like iron. They're comfortable, last forever, and they don't go out of style. I've had others, too, which were okay, but I keep coming back to this model.
