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.

        Great Sandal, has the best arch support. The feel is like wearing a shoe with ventilation. I have tried several different sandals over the years, these are the best.

            Do not buy these Katavi thongs, because they do not wear out. I,m retired, live in the South and wear mine 85% of the time (I wear shoes when I ride my Yamaha FZ6). However, my wife complains if I what to buy a different color, saying:"you need to wear the old pair out first". P.S. I own 2 pair now.

                Wear them fishing, at the Y when I take a shower. Also when I wear shorts.
                They give me great support. The only negative is they come apart. I think the glue breaks down from moisture.

                  From office work to travel, wear exclusively at home relaxing. Always great functional long lasting durable products. Usually the foot strap breaks after a long reliable service from your products. No complaints from me at all. Richard Jackson MD
