When I was young I would walk in my bare feet everywhere, I despised shoes. I was never a shoe girl although I do like shoes, I just never wore them. However, I moved to Florida, and became addicted to flip flops. In Florida, there is no way possible to walk around in bare feet, so these became my footwear of choice. It was similar to walking barefoot, yet I had some cushioning to protect my feet from the hot surfaces. I have had hundreds of pairs of flip flops, and was thrilled to try a pair from Havaianas. Havaianas have stylish and comfortable flip flops that began in 1962, when the first pair of Havaianas was introduced by the Zori. They were typical Japanese sandals that were made of fabric straps and rice straw soles. Due to this ALL Havaianas have a textured rice pattern on the foot-bed.
While browsing around all the styles I was delighted to see many bright colors, from basic colors like pink, blue and yellow, to fun patterns and crystal Havaianas. Since I adore purple I knew I wanted a color I would wear often, so I chose a pair of Slim Logo Metallic in sand gray and purple straps. The day they arrived I could tell these were a much better quality than basic foam flip flops. They were heavier than typical flip flops and the foot bed seemed thick, like it would last the wear and tear I would put them through. They also have a great tread on them. Many of my flip flops lose their shape, become really thin where my big toe is due to how I walk, and many straps have broke. The straps on the Havaianas are comfortable and slim and have a logo of the company. The part that goes between the two toes, is somewhat similar to a gel material which to me doesn’t seem like anything is there. They are definitely comfortable flip flops. This will be the start of my journey with Havaianas. They have so many cute pairs of sandals I could go on a huge shopping spree. I think they are priced reasonable with the quality of them. I can see myself wearing these for many years, unlike some pairs I have.
Not only do they sell fashionable flip flops for women, but they have them for the entire family including baby flip flops and kids. Look at these oh so adorable baby pets pair which come in many colors for boys or girls with cute animals on the strap.
