The havana new joe thong, although looks fairly average at first, really does represent a true blue real set of thongs. The thongs design does look really messy and dirty, but thats the way they're meant to, and they do pull off what people would call a 'real' thong. The Comfort of the thong at the start is fairly average, and first time users are known to have their skin ripped between the toes (where the rubber bit sits), however when you get used to them, they really do feel rather good. The design is just as any other thong would look, however this design is fairly new as they have a slight elevation at the back, which adds high to the people who really need it (Like myself). The price does seem a little hefty for what your getting, but these thongs are the lognest set of thogns i have ever had, almost over 6 months.. The best use for these thongs is if you have a back yard, and need a set of quick shoes to chuck on to have a quick ciggy or something outside like that. Also if you needa go meet somebody at the corner of a street, just whip on the make do shoes and you'll be a hit in the neighbourhood.
