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.

    Was trying to replace an old pair of women's Katavi thongs that I loved. Unfortunately they don't have them in Women's any more so I had to order Men's. They are the exact same measurements as the Women's but only come in dark colors. Bring them back in Women's colors.

          With a bad ankle, I needed a shoe that had a good padded bottom. These are very soft when walking and cushion the ankle and spine very well. The top straps give when walking so as not to dig in and bind the top of the foot.

                        I love a FF with arch support. I also like the ample heel cushion. I am always on the lookout for a comfortable pair of FF and with these I found the most comfortable pair I have ever tried. I hope they never change!!

                          I would suggest getting one size larger than you would normally wear. I am a size 10/10 1/2 and I ordered a size 11 and it is perfect. This is the best pair of thongs I have ever bought. It is like walking on a soft cloud! You can't go wrong.
