i recently bought a pair of slappas. they are thongs which are orthotic and supposed to be very good. my friend from perth recommended them. i can't remember if i blogged about them, i think i did. i've been trying to wear them in but my feet are 'special' and it's never easy to buy shoes let alone comfortable ones. i had to soak them in hot water and then put them on to 'mold' them to my feet. i must say i don't find them terribly comfy. i have a pair of croc thongs that i've hardly worn. they are more comfortable but still not the best. i got a pair of rivers thongs and they were ok. the best thongs i ever had/have are flojos. they are very good quality and have a nice thick sole while the straps are leather and nice and soft. i wore them in a muddy paddock once and i thought they'd be ruined but they washed up beautifully. they were on special at harbour town years ago. a lot of people can't wear thongs on their feet because of the bit between the toes but i have a huge big toe and the gap is wide so i'm good with thongs. when i say my feet are 'special' i am not exaggerating as that's what my podiatrist calls them except that he is not as polite. i wear orthotics in my shoes normally. my daughter in law loves havaianas which are also expensive. apparently in ubud, bali when the yuppies (is that still a word) go into their yoga classes and leave their shoes at the door the havaianas often get stolen. then they put a post on fb and ask for them back which i suppose for the price they pay is understandable.
