    Is there a website with a better selection of haviana flip flops than urbn.com?

    i :heart: these things

    i actually have a friend that thinks $12 is toooo expensive for flip flops :rolleyes:
    can't wait till she gets in to the "real world" and finds out how much stuff costs

    I think $12 is too expensive for me personally to spend on flip-flops and I have a pretty solid idea of what stuff costs in the real world.

    I'd rather spend four bucks on Old Navy flip-flops, then put the leftover eight dollars towards something that isn't made of foam or rubber. Just sayin'.

    What makes these Havainas different from any other flip flop I can pick up at Duane Reade? I dont mean to sound ignorant this question, I'm just a flip flop addict.. and i really am just curious.

    They're 100% latex rubber - thats why they're so comfy and durable.

    Whstever you do don't complain about paying $12 - theyre more like $29 in Europe!! :cry:

    well I can tell you the flip-flops in the drug store do not last. My Havaianas I have had for years, and being a brasileira myself I can say that with ease. But in the end I would think its a matter of taste, some people like it some don't it is fine- but mines are adorned with beads and work well on the beaches all over the world :lol: :woot:

    I LOVE HAVIANAS TOO! They last such a looong time. I saw that Henri Bendel had some, with the Swarovski crystals and without. The ones with the crystals were waaay too expensive tho, like around $120. Last summer I ordered some from eBay, and it was really easy. You might try there.. Just know what size to get first.

    Thanks for that!!!! :lol:
    Being a brazilian, it's really flattering. :flower:

    And, yes, Havaianas do last more than any other flip-flops. And they are great when you're swimming, they give the required stability to walk over wet surfaces. I used to have a red pair, but they went r.i.p. after some years. Now, I'm wearing acqua ones, just adorable. :heart:

    I'm considering selling Havaianas on e-bay. Would I have you guys for customers? :lol:
