If you don’t have a pair of thongs in your wardrobe, you may very well be un-Australian!! (joking, don’t send me emails!)
For our OS readers, we are not talking about skimpy underwear here, but the rubber footwear also known as flipflops or jandals as our kiwi cousins like to call them.
Living in the subtropics, I pretty much live in thongs all year round.
Of course, I like a pretty thong, not your $2 double plugger special. Good quality thongs can last you for years and years.
I was super-excited to hear about Australian company malc & andi’s organic thongs!!
They are 100% natural rubber, organic and biodegradable. Only available online here.
They promise that their thongs are “super lightweight and soft – it’s almost like walking on clouds”.
So, what’s the verdict?
We got sent three pairs to try – one each for me and the two cherubs. The NNAD doesn’t wear thongs!
We all love them. They are super-soft and really comfortable. My biggest problem with thongs is the rubbing around the toes. I have worn them all day for a week and there is no rubbing or discomfort. I’m a fan!
The Natural New Age Girl, 11, says she loves the light blue colour of hers and they are really comfy and don’t rub her feet. (Yes, she has problem feet like her mum!)
The Natural New Age Boy, 14 says they are comfortable and stylish. (He is very fussy about his appearance now!)
5% of sales go to animal charities! I am always impressed with a company that gives back. They also will not sell anything that contain animal product, no leather, no suede, and no fur.
The only thing I was disappointed with, was the plastic packaging! I would love to see the company using paper or recyclable packaging.
So, would you like a pair of malc&andi organic thongs on your feet this summer?
