From the beaches of Brazil to the Blackpool sands

my faithful, yet battered flip flop
Now I bet you thought I was going to talk about some holiday I took in some far flung place but no, I'm going to talk about flip flops.  Actually I need to discuss the ultimate in flip flops - Havaianas

I've always bought cheap flip flops that last a summer and then end up in the bin a couple of months after constant use and abuse.  I'd never considered buying anything costing more than £5 that I would really only be used if I was by a pool or walking on a beach.  Then I saw these black pair in an online sale a couple of years ago and thought I'd increase the amount I was willing to pay for a pair of flip flops, so paid £15 for them.  Now I know it might sound a bit much but until you actually buy and use a pair, you don't realise what you might be missing out on! These are serious heavy-duty flip flops, I have worn them constantly throughout the past couple of years and they still haven't worn out, despite the fact I have been painting ceilings in them.

What's your budget for flip flops and have you caught the Brazil bug and got yourself some Havaianas too?
The real deal (check out the history page to see what I mean)
I would like to buy another pair so will have to consider whether my budget will allow, and I really like these . . .




And I really like these . . .
I love the fact that Havaianas are planning to cater for any type of weather with the introduction of their rain boot range, perfect for the great British summer!

I've been dithering about investing in a pair of Havianas for years. The cheapo ones wear out so quickly so I'm wondering wheter to bite the bullet and spend some cash on a decent pair.
Those wellies look really cute, don't they? xxx

I live in flip flops in the warmer months and have many pairs, none of which are especially expensive. I plan to buy some Havaianas as I have read so many good reviews...

I have a few pairs of havaianas my self. I got a gift certificate for my birthday last last years and that is where all the craze started.I got me and my daughters each a pair. And I buy one every 6 months.
