Yes. Despite the fact that we have set out to make Archies Thongs as strong as we possibly can, unfortunately Archies Thongs are not indestructible and it is possible to break them.
To minimise the chances of this happening, when you are not wearing your thongs, avoid leaving them in direct sunlight or high temperatures (e.g uncovered in the back of a car!). Leaving the thongs subject to prolonged sun exposure and high temperatures can cause the material to shrink making the material brittle and increasing the risk of breakage.
We recommend that you reserve the use of Archies Thongs for normal walking only and avoid activities that put undue strain on the thongs, such as running, playing outdoor sports or jumping around at music concerts. It is not advisable to walk down steep hills in wet feet wearing Archies Thongs as this can stretch the strap and increase the risk of breakage of the toe pole.
