With general use and proper care, you should get one to two summers of excellent use out of your thongs. After the first year, the lifespan of your thongs depends on the following factors:
- How often you wear them and how heavy you are on your feet
- The surface they are commonly worn on
- The activity that you do while wearing them
- If you've cared for your thongs
Generally speaking, our thongs are exceptionally strong and will almost always wear out before they break. This is something that our customers frequently tell us and it is extremely rare for us to ever get any customer complaints about the durability of the thongs.
We have witnessed people wear the same pair of Archies Thongs for over 5 years, however, normally, the grip will be well worn down after wearing them for this long and, as such we don't recommend wearing them for the risk of slipping.
While we believe that the wear of Archies Thongs is excellent and as good as you will ever find in this sort of thong, at the end of the day they still are just thongs (very special thongs!) and after considerable use, they will eventually start to wear down and out.
All our thongs are covered by a 6-month warranty for manufacturing faults. For more information, please have a look at our Warranty policy.
