are they more comfortable? my current flip flops give me blisters. or are they a big con?

Podrick Tue 12-Aug-08 18:50:36

yes more comfy
I think they are worth paying more for although not £20...you can get them for around £12

yes definitely - I can't wear normal flip flops as too uncomfortable but havianas are fine.

olympicsnotfederer Tue 12-Aug-08 18:57:10

yes, if you can get them cheaper online or buy them abroad

I love them but wouldn't pay full price. Office have some in the sale at the mo

Yes

I didn't find them very comfortable at all. My £5 M&S ones are much better.

I swear by reef fabric flip flops and I live in flip flops. I have tried on Havianas and am not convinced by them despite their kudos!

Yes, just got back from spain and I lived in mine.

Niceychops Thu 21-Aug-08 18:11:45

Meh, don't really need them any more in this rubbish weather >

I say no. They cut my feet to shreds. I swear by the Accesorize ones.

<<nosey>> how much do they cost in the UK? I buy mine here in australia and I don't feel they are that pricey ... I LOVE them - I have two pairs of Rip Curl flip flops and I hate them, really uncomfy.

para rubber! I'm from Auckland.

I have had mine for 3 yrs and still as good as new. The only flipflops not to wear thin quickly.
