(Ad - Gifted) Thinking ahead to the warmer months with Havaianas!

It's not quite flip flop wearing weather but I am sure the summer will be here before we know it and fluffy socks and boots will be ditched and sandals and flip flops will be brought out and worn.

I think the most well know type of flip flops is the iconic Brazilian flip flop brand, Havaianas. I was lucky to be sent a couple of pairs to be featured and to be honest I wish it was summer already.

The first pair of Havaianas were created in 1962 and were inspired by Japanese zori sandals. The brand is sold in more than 80 countries and they are continuously updating it's styles and adding different designs, colours and even things like adding special edition crystals and metallic floral embellishments. Despite these changes the design’s signature textured rubber sole and thong has remained virtually the same since its earliest days in the 60s.

Brazil's original and authentic flip-flops in a wide range of colours. This model includes the Brazilian flag on the strap and the logo is coloured. With eleven different colours, there's something for every taste. The sole has 3 rubber stripes in three of Brazil's colours yellow, green and blue which make it one the most famous models of Havaianas.

Havaianas act as a blank canvas and this range shows off the work of Tarsila Do Amaral.

In Paris Tarsila Do Amaral developed her signature style of vibrant colours capturing landscapes from her native Brazil as well as folkloric scenes familiar to the everyday lives of Brazilians. Tarsila is counted amongst the founding artists of the modernist art movement in Brazil in the 1920s. 

In the summer I like to wear flip flops and usually buy a cheap pair from the pound shop. I end up with a sore patch between my toes and they usually fall to bits within a few weeks. I had never thought about buying Havaianas before but after trying them on and having a walk around in them I will be. 

The Havaianas are so comfortable and that's even before I've really worn them in and shaped them to my feet. There isn't that uncomfortable feeling between my toes and I can see me getting a lot of wear out of them in the warmer months.

With Mother's Day coming next month a pair of Havaianas would make a great gift. I know I would be happy to receive a pair. Havaianas offer a wide range of styles, colours and designs, there is something for everyone.

I was sent these Havaianas free of charge in exchange for this blog post.

  1. I was thinking of getting some of these for when we go on Holiday to Spain in the summer as I can't wear normal flip flops either x
