Our expected life span for Slappa’s can be anywhere from 6 months to 6 years it depends very much on which part of the country you’re in and what kind of surfaces you’re walking on, also how often you wear them and how they are stored and cleaned.
Slappa’s Thongs can be cleaned with a wet cloth, in the shower and in a cold washing machine.

EVA is a very durable and flexible material which makes Slappa’s Thongs quite strong and long-lasting.
It is best to take your foot out of the thongs and then pull the thong out with your hands from the sole, not the toe piece. This is so you don’t weaken or put pressure on the toe piece.
Yes, they can! And that’s why it’s extremely important that you NEVER leave your Slappa’s in direct sunlight or in a hot car, closed hot tent or high temperature area for long periods of time.
When your Slappa’s first arrive they may take some time to mould to your feet and become comfy. This is because podiatrists and chiropractors recommend that they start firm for better support.
To help your Slappa’s mould to your feet quickly and easily simply keep wearing them in the shower, until soften to your liking; the hot water will soften the EVA foam and loosen the toe piece and straps. You can also leave them in direct sunlight for 10 – 15 minutes then wear them around.
