I've routinely found that the rubber foot bed never loses its shape or compresses
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 17 November 2017
A long time wearer of Havaianas Tops, a few months back I purchased a pair of Tiras Tops and have recently begun to add the Slims to my ever expanding collection of the best flip flop that money can buy.
Granted, they do cost considerably more than the rubbish sold in supermarkets during summer months, but their premium is certainly worth the extra expense. Having worn Havaianas for well over a decade, of the numerous pairs owned, I've routinely found that the rubber foot bed never loses its shape or compresses, thus, ensuring that my feet remain superbly cushioned and comfortable throughout, particularly since they're barely ever off my feet (even in winter months).
Through repeated wear (particularly white), the toes certainly will leave their mark upon the foot bed. However, the presence of such certainly doesn't detract from their durability, routinely finding those pairs that do encounter heavy use will last for between 3 and 4 years before the rubber begins to harden and degrade.
Having worn them for many years, the key to achieving a perfect fit is to wear Havaianas a size smaller than usual shoe size. For example, I take a size UK 9 shoe, so always order Havaianas in a 41-42 (UK 7-8).
I've attached images of the black Slims and silver Tiras Tops, demonstrating how ordering in a smaller size certainly does pay dividends.
