Australians love thongs. They are the perfect footwear for the Aussie climate and are so easy to take on and off you don't even need to reach down with your arms!
One of the biggest downfall of thongs is the blowout. Rendering the wearer barefoot (unless it's winter)
Come winter time. The true thong enthusiast would rather face the certain scorn of society and combine socks with thongs
Some activities in Australia require more safety conscious footwear.
If we can't wear them on our feet. Australians will even use thongs to float in the pool.
Thongs can also be used to send a message to fellow Australians. If anyone on this planet would follow these instructions, it's Aussies!
Even if an Aussie can't find their thongs, we will improvise.
To save the need to rely on the bread clip thong repair kit or customising water bottles into thongs (some feet are just to big for the average bottle), Australians can buy new thongs 24/7 from vending machines!
Not just for your feet, if you get on the wrong side of a thong wearing Aussie you might get slapped with the Australian weapon of choice.
Some Aussie's love thongs so much they're not content with wearing them themselves, but they adorn their car with them as well.
The true mark of any Australian, can you run in thongs?
