i agree that for flip flops the cheaper the better- life is too short to worry about keeping them clean!

haha Designer flip flops just don't tickle my shoe fancy. They're the most unfashionable of footwear.

I'm fine with my wally word flip flops. :p

I love havaianas myself, but it's just funny to me how they have become such a fashion hit in the US and Europe...! I mean, i've been wearing them since i was 5, and so has every brazilian, rich and (very) poor. They are the commonest footwear in Brasil, and much cheaper to buy there than when they are exported to the rich countries. I must say i had a chuckle when i saw them being sold in Selfridges in London at those ridiculous prices. I don't know... Don't want to offend anyone here, but to me it's all just very ironic and wierd!
I guess you could call it an incredibly clever marketing move from the company of havaianas!

On another note.. My cousin is bringing me the flowery pink ones from Brasil, can't wait! cute and comfortable!

I have a pair of black swarovski havainas, dont remember were I got them They were $80 and I've gotten so much compliments, the crystals stay on so well too. Only lost 1 the whole summer, and they give a little baggy of extras to glue on. I love them, not only do they hold up so nicley, but they're not felt like most of the others I've worn. The rubber is just so nice and cushy, molds with the feet. I love them!

I've always pronounced it like you would pronounce it in spanish, which is hah-vah-ee-ah-nahs. But that could very well be wrong because I don't know how to pronounce things in portuguese. At all. But I know there are many brazilians here...so they would be able to help.

What are the best sites (US) to purchase Havaianas? Price/shipping wise... the cheapest & where they would have the 4/5 US size? Ive noticed alot of them dont have that size & thats the size I need. I wish they sold them somewhere near me.
Thanks.

I just got a few pairs from havaianasus.com. They weren't the cheapest but they seemed to have the best selection and I recieved them fairly fast.

I believe I saw a bunch at David Z in the NoHo/Soho area.

i've got those same ones. paid 50 euros for them and love them.

havaianas are by far the most flattering cheap flip flops as their rubber gives a nice rebound to the foot and therefore a nicer shape when walking
thats one shoe i keep buying all summer long in every colour
