Are Havianas comfortable (for kids)?

DDs (9 and 10) want flip flops, but don't like the 'pretty' ones, and ime they are usually uncomfortable. Havianas seem to come in good colours and are fairly plain - are they comfortable or do you get that 'saw between your toes' sensation?!

I lived in mine the last couple of years. My main concern would be them trying to run in them. That's a recipe for disaster!

Yep mine wear them all the time. DS even in winter due to years of living by the beach.

Mine were bought some for a birthday they don't want to wear anything else because they are so comfortable and squishy.

Slim Havaianas are the ones I usually buy, and I have worn flip-flops since being a kid. They have a good range of colours.

Some people's feet aren't that well suited to them physically, or they might not like the feeling of a toe post if they are not used to them. One solution might be to try the Reef ones that have a fabric webbing upper which may be more comfortable.

Trying to run or drive in flip-flops is not a good idea smile
