Are the straps always a bit loose? I tried a pair and felt as though the strap would drive me mad by constantly slipping down?

Mine are. I don't normally bother to keep it on. I only wear them to pottle around in though and would never drive in them. Are lovely and comfy though.

Ah see I got knock offs from Next and thought maybe it was just those. I walk a lot and am wondering if I'm going to have to stop every 3 steps to hoik the straps up.

What's the brand name?

It never happens with the original "avarcas" handmade in Menorca. Normally it happens with Alicante (specially Elche) sandals. I can say it because I work in a Avarcas company in Menorca, you can check it at

This is because the backstrap it's not double reinforced with recycled tires. Just for costs, some Alicante companies don't do it.

I hope it clarify your question smile

Hi, I've got some avarcas - bought in Menorca - the strap never falls down. Its quite thick and stays in place and feels secure. They're super comfy too. (I'm not recommending this but I've put mine in the washing machine a couple of times too - come out like new!)

I have palmerias and also sollilas and the straps never fall down

I will ask a friend to write a blog post to check the differences between original menorcan sandals and the rest ;)
