Havaianas Flip Flops
Advantages: comfortable, easily available to buy, long lasting, great colours and quality
Disadvantages: not glamorous but does the job!
I purchased my pair of haviana flip flops in June 2009 (remember it like it was yesterday!) As I was 7 months pregnant, I had been out shopping and my feet were swollen and sore and I literally wanted to buy the cheapest footwear possible to ease the pain! At the time they were £19.99 and I genuinely haven't looked back since!
You can get them in a variety of colours, and these flip flops are the most durable and comfortable flip flops ever! A well known brand, they can never break as they are 100% rubber (not that they feel like it!) bar between the big toe and second toe is attached to a hole underneath the sole, so if it comes out, you can easily slot it back in (not that this has happened to my pair, but it has to my friend who has had hers for 4 years and they are still going strong). Originating with a brazilian flag design, the brand has branched out, and has many colours, patterns and designs suitable for everyone.
The good thing about havianas is that they are so worldwide (and unisex which is a major bonus!) they can be bought almost anywhere in good footwear retailers e.g. schuh, office (where I bought mine and helps if you can get extra 10% off student discount yay!) and online off amazon etc. They are so comfortable, you can walk along a stony beach with these on, and not feel the uncomfortable lumps and sharp edges underneath so they are extremely thick soled. Being rubber they are easy to clean, should you get them dirty and at the price you pay they are a bargain for flip flops with longevity and a must have for the summer and in everyones suitcase!
Summary: flip flops everyone should have!
