Also known as plugga I guess. A nickname for thongs (the ones that you put on your feet) and seems to be used in Western Australia. They can single- or double-pluggers, single-pluggers being thongs that are reinforced with one set of plugs on the underside of the thongs and double-pluggers being douby reinforced with two plugs
I'm going down to Hay Street Mall today and there's more people wearing single-pluggers than double-pluggers today

Heard first on Gold Coast, Australia. Pluggers are thongs, slip ons, flip flops etc. They are specifically the type of thongs that are a thin sheet of rubber and a "wishbone" shape of rubber protruding from the thin sheet that goes between your toes. This wishbone piece of rubber is held to the thin sheet of rubber by "plugs" that protrude through the thin rubber sheet from top to bottom. You can have single pluggers or double pluggers or maybe more, this number comes from the number of plugs for each wishbone anchoring point on the bottom of the thin sheet.
You better put on your pluggers as the road is very hot.
