This is actually very interesting: Flip-flops - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia let me know if I have to post the whole wiki page (it's long).
    The article mentions:
    The Ancient Greeks and Romans wore versions of flip-flops as well. In Greek sandals, the toe strap was worn between the first and second toes, while Roman sandals had the strap between the second and third toes.
    I can't imagine wearing a strap between my second and third toes. It would drive me mad by the third hour.

    Those flip-flops the Aussies keep mentioning look cute. I want some.

    Same here. Love Kenneth Cole flip flops/sandals. I have dressy black ones, silver ones, and copper metallic ones so I can always match them to an outfit.

    Currently wearing my Jack Rogers, even though it's 40 degrees outside and raining. Suck it haterz.

    I love when I switch out my winter slippers for flip flops for around the house, and wherever the hell else I want to wear them - I do need to go in search of a new pair of Eliza B's though, even I'm slightly put off with how long I've had them.

    Please explain these Haviananas to me, why are they so special that I should pay $40 for a pair of flip flops?

    Same, I guess we were working with different definitions here. I think the rubber ones are fine, though, I just find so many more attractive options to bother with them.

    Apart from the great choice of colours and trims they come with wide or narrow straps and are made in a very comfortable, soft, pliable rubber. They are just better made and more robust than other brands. Probably pricier than they should be but they last forever. Aussies are thong (flip flop) connoisseurs and Havs are the brand of choice. My current faves are the black, narrow strap with a single, small crystal. Sounds tacky but I think they are understated and klassy.

    40 bucks? Wow I don't know why they're so expensive, I bought a pair for $16.99 and the most they cost is about $30. But we love them so much because the rubber is really sturdy and they last for ages without wearing down quickly and hurting your feet. And they're cute and come in pretty much any colour and you can customise them with different straps for like a buck extra.

    ^ I was looking at them on Macy's website and they ranged from $18-$40. But of course I liked the $40 ones, in black. Cute little skulls.

    The Havaianas tend to last a long time and they have so many color choices, that's why I like them.
