There is no exact answer to this, because the durability of a pair of Archies Thongs depends on many different factors, such as frequency of use, type of use, the surface that they are commonly worn on, product care and so on. We have witnessed people wear the same pair of Archies Thongs for over 5 years.
However, our general advice, is that with proper care, you should get one full summer of excellent use. After the first year the lifespan depends on the factors previously discussed. While we believe that the wear of Archies Thongs is excellent, at the end of the day they still are just thongs (very special thongs though!) and after considerable use they will eventually start to wear down and out. Our warranty covers the thongs for up to three (3) months from receipt of the goods. For more information please see our Returns and Warranty section of this website.
