Havaianas Summer ’08-’09


Sure, Brazil is famous for inventing the thong, but it's reinvented another type of thong that thankfully doesn't require being born with lucky genes to wear: the classic rubber sandal. You're looking at some models from Havaianas4.jpg

We also like a surf-themed set; an India-inspired pair with ankle band; and the version that started it all for the company, the simple white sole with colored straps but now in new hues.


Havaianas has been steadily usurping more and more established U.S. beach sandal brands in the last few years and like Melissa, their worldwide domination doesn't seem so far away.
