Just that really! TIA thanks

Nope - they are super comfy and don't rub at all. I can walk for hours in mine without any problems and I also like that the sole is thick enough so that you don't feel every lump and bump on the ground.

Some people think they are a bit pricy but I have had mine since 2006 and they are still going strong and have been worn a lot. I think I would have spent more in the long run if I had bought cheaper flip flops. Also, the sole doesn't compress where your feet sit, or curl up like cheap ones do.

You need to rub Vaseline on the bits that are chaffing. This works on.p any shoes or straps.

Nope grin
I'm wearing mine that I bought in Oz 6 years ago. Never hurt me and look as good as the day I bought them.

Aw brilliant thank you. I just ordered them in gold then wished I'd posted here before I'd ordered. I got the slim ones - I don't suppose that will make any difference will it?

No. They are comfy and last for ages.

EliotNess Wed 10-Jul-13 16:32:59

No. No ribbing

lizandlulu Wed 10-Jul-13 16:33:18

I love mine, my friend hates hers

No help at all! Sorry

I normally have v tough feet, but do get a bit of rubbings from my havs after a couple of hours. But I suspect by the end of the summer my feet will have toughened up and I won't get it any more. <helpful>

I have slim and normal ones , they have never rubbed .

Sparkletastic Wed 10-Jul-13 17:59:07

Nope they are ace.

Fit Flops do but once broken in are bliss (if a bit naff but I'm beyond caring).

Aetae Wed 10-Jul-13 18:01:37

They're a lot more comfy than any other flip flops I've owned. If I wear them all day and it's hot (sweaty) they rub a bit but usually they're great.

GypsyFloss Wed 10-Jul-13 18:11:39

I have slim ones...they are fab and never rubbed.

eurozammo Wed 10-Jul-13 18:15:37

Mine rub as they go over the arch but not between the toes. I do have daftly high arches though.

GwendolineMaryLacey Wed 10-Jul-13 18:22:14

Yes and I've had the worst cracked heels in my 41 years since wearing them. Have relegated them to slippers now and back to my trusty fitflops.

OhCobblers Wed 10-Jul-13 19:59:37

Can anyone tell me wherei can buy a cheap pair pref in gold? Don't think I've seen them in tkmaxx?! Thanks

GypsyFloss Wed 10-Jul-13 20:08:49

I picked up a gold pair from Cloggs the other day. For some bizarre reason it still applied an old MN code MN15 so they were 18 quid with free delivery and returns. smile

Wolfiefan Wed 10-Jul-13 20:15:12

I have bought 2 pairs this summer and love them!

JoyceDivision Wed 10-Jul-13 21:09:54

Any one know what the Gandy flip flops are like?

lizandlulu Wed 10-Jul-13 21:13:56

Matalan have had them online recently, but don't know what colours.

suze28 Wed 10-Jul-13 21:41:20

Havs are the comfiest flipflops ever. I have the slim white and wear them with everything.

GwendolineMaryLacey Wed 10-Jul-13 21:47:44

No, don't get any!

spacegoat Wed 10-Jul-13 21:59:27

Have ordered some Gandy's will let you know. ..

lizandlulu Wed 10-Jul-13 22:10:16

These gandys are on sale in schu. I have never heard of them! And I thought I was in touch with these things
