yes, they also last EXTREMELY well. I wear flipflops basically everyday, pounding the streets of london and they are starting to wear down now but they are also a couple of years old now. They are just super comfy and really my footwear of choice. Yum.

They really do last. I have a pair of white topped ones from the summer when Target introduced 'em to the US (maybe three or four years ago?) and they're just now getting a bit worn (although they're still pretty springy). As opposed to my el cheapo Old Navy flip flops which feel like thin paper after just one season. I'm defintely a convert.

Yes Havaianas are pretty big in Australia, u can pick them up at almost every surf store or General Pants Co. IMO they are really comfy and I have sooooooooooo many colors in them. I bought some regular flip flops from Old Navy now that I moved to the States and they are much harder than Havis and also more slippery!!!

Yup once you start you'll never go back. It's pretty pricey for slippers but it's really worth it.

I got a pair of white ones recently...and they're starting to get dirty...
Is it possible to wash them or will it damage them?

You can wash them. Are they printed? Some of the printed ones get erased though I read somewhere that to clean white havaianas all you have to do is soak it in salt water and it will return to its pristine condition. Havent tried yet though. I wash mine with detergent.

hey guys, do the rubber straps cut your feet? i have 2 pairs and the straps always rub into the skin until they turn red and even raw (when my skin tears) :|

That has never hapened to me, but maybe you are wearing a size too short, or maybe it depends on the shape of your feet...
honestly i donīt know.

Wivinia - I have the same problem!
Have tried two different sizes but just don't think havaianas are for me, maybe its because I have weird shaped feet or something but they left me in severe pain for a week after wearing them as they rubbed on top of the foot and on the bottom where the strap joins the sole.
