These wear forever!! If they have a design on the sole, I have yet to see that wear off even after years of use.
I bought these to replace a green, Brazilian flagged, and striped sole pair of Havaianas that finally broke after of twelve years of daily wear around the house and sometimes out to the grocery store.
My husband love it, he dind't want use any other brand he just use this classic havaianas since many years ago, and i see why, few years ago i bougth another brazilian sandals for hem the brand was rider or riders.
Surprisingly comfortable. I've gone through a few of the knockoffs before finally trying these. They are a bit heavier than your drug store variety, but they are also more durable.
The ones I ordered ran somewhat large but thats not a problem for me....they are extremely comfortable. Well worth the price and then some.
Excellent sandals, especially for walking in gym pools or showers, not too much squeak when they get wet like cheaper brands.
