Here in Florida, spring has arrived with all of its vibrant colors! The azaleas are blooming and almost overnight, all my trees have bright green leaves. This makes me happy for so many reasons, including the fact that it’s the perfect weather for wearing flip flops and showing off pretty spring pedicure colors.
I received a pair of fashionable Havaianas flip flops and have been wearing them around for the past week. Havaianas sandals have been a celebrity favorite for a while, and with all of their dazzling options you can have a pair to match every outfit. The company has been around since the 60s and has spread to become an international phenomenon. Famed shoe designer Christian Louboutin has said, “Every woman should own three pairs of shoes – high heels, flat shoes, and Havaianas.”
Whether you are looking for solid color flip flops or exotic prints, Havaianas has a wide variety for men, women, and kids shoes. They even have wedding flip flops. These are perfect for the bride and groom to slip into for the reception, or make great color-coordinated gifts for your bridesmaids that they will actually use and enjoy.
They had so many styles I liked that it was hard to narrow it down to just one. I finally settled on the womens Slim Thematic sandals in silver/grey ($26). These flip flops feature a colorful peacock print on the insole, and I figured the silver color would make them versatile to pair with many different outfits.
They arrived looking exactly as pictured on the website. I thought that they might be a little uncomfortable because of the rubber strap, but so far they have been comfortable to wear with no blistering (I haven’t worn them for long distances yet though). They feature a slim rubber sole, making them perfect for wearing to the beach or pool.
Updated 6/25/13: A few months ago, one of the straps developed a tear in the rubber. They are still functional for now, but I’m just waiting for the moment when it rips completely and I’m stuck somewhere with my shoe falling off Also if someone steps on my shoe, it will pull the whole thong part out from the sole – easily replaced, but these are fairly low quality shoes. Great for the beach or pool, but may not last more than a few seasons with regular wear.
