Havaiana Flip Flops

Random conversation I overheard:
Parisian Designer: I got these really cheap for $20 in New York! Aren't they wonderful? So comfortable!
Brazilian Model: Yes they're awesome! And they're even cheaper in Brazil! They're just a few dollars.

Excerpt of email from a friend in Sydney:
. . And I really need to get Havaianas filp flops! They're SO popular here. Everyone is wearing them-and its WINTER here!! . . .


I know Havaianas have been around forever and all the celebrities have been spotted wearing it, but I STILL don't understand what so great about these special brazilian brand of flip flops!


I've looked at it from many different angles and I STILL cannot differentiate between a pair of Havaianas and a normal pair of flip flops-besides the words "Havaianas" ofcourse (and the funky graphics courtesy of www.havaianas.com). Don't get me wrong, they're perfect for the beach, I esp love the extra height it gives u. I just don't get what all this fuss I've been hearing is all about! Do enlighten me.

Havianas are probably the most comfortable flip flops around, and i have had a lot of flip flops. Apparently its the rubber they use which is really spongey and soft. Its like walking on air. i have two pairs, in white and black. I may never go back to another flipflop again.

I wore my boyfriend's pair of Havaianas once and the rubber strap rubbed a blister on my foot.

I really don't see what's so speacial about them, but I guess I can't give a true opinion until I've tried them on in real life.

It's the comfort factor that makes them so good. They're nothing special to look at but the rubber moulds to your feet to make them so comfy you hardly know you're wearing flip-flops...and they last for ages. Also, the prints don't wear off the first time you wear them.

If you decide to give them a go igapost.com is the best stockist I've found.

I agree with the overhype. Anyway, the most comfy flip flop I've tried is from Aussie surf brand Reef. The one I bought have a soft rubbery sole that fits the contour of your foot and the design too is better than Havaianas.

Oooh, yes, Reefs are amazing! I've had one of my pairs for more than five years, and they keep getting more comfortable. I've made people dive off of sailboats on more than one occasion to retrieve one that went overboard. My other faves are brown leather Rainbows--total preppy staple. They're the sandal version of boat shoes. I don't get the big deal about Havaianas. They're just rubber flip flops, nothing too special, but I suppose if you can get them cheaply they're as good as any.

What percentage of Australians would own Havaianas, I think must no rate as the most popular shoe in Australia. Would you agree? Who holds the record for owning the most pairs?

Don't buy those terribly over-hyped flip flops...
they are the by-product of sweatshop manufacturing in Brazil.
Have a look at this article:

It'll change your mind on 'how cute' they look!

Havaianas are now on sale for prices up to 80 times what they cost to produce in sweatshops in Northern Brazil. Feel good about paying that much to profiteering middle-men? If you think they are the only soft flip-flop or that they're so much different or better than most other flip-flops you obviously won't understand what all the REAL fuss about Havainanas is about....
Be real - actually give a damn about what your money pays for!

Thank you for the wonderful effort

إني تذكـرت والذكرى مؤرقـة *مجـداً تلـيدا بأيـدينا أضعـناه

أنَّى اتجهتَ للإسـلام في بـلـدٍ * تجْده كالطيرِ مقصـوصًا جناحـاه

كـم صرفتنا يـدٌ كنـا نـصرفها * وبات يـملكنا شعب مـلكناه

بالله سل خلف بحر الروم عن عرب * بالأمس كانوا هنا واليوم قد تاهوا

وانزل دمشق وسائل صخر مسجدها * عمن بناه لعل الـصخر ينعـاه

هذى معـالم خرس كـل واحـدة * منهن قامت خطيبـا فاغرا فـاه

الله يعلم ما قلبت سـيرتهم يومـا * وأخطـأ دمـع الـعين مـجراه

يا من يرى عمـراتكسوه بردته * الزيت أدمٌ لـه والكـوخ مـأواه

يهتز كسـرى على كرسيه فرقـا * من خوفه ، وملوك الروم تخشـاه

يا رب فابعث لنا من مثلهم نفـرا * يشـيدون لـنا مـجدا أضعنـاه
