Hello happy! Hello Havaianas!

Ooh, the sun is shining and it is finally time to break out the summer footwear. Top of my list are my faithful Havaianas. My go-to footwear brand for an easy, breezy style that’s not just for the beach.

Created in 1962, the iconic Brazilian flip flop brand is known all over the world for their incredibly comfortable and stylish flip flops. Originally inspired by the traditional Japanese Zori made of rice and cloth, Havaianas rubber flip flops still have the rice pattern sole as a link back to the ancient sandals. Today there are over 200 styles available, with new collections every year. This summer sees the launch of the Flat, shown below, which features thinner soles and shorter ‘jelly’s  traps. They are also available in a Flat Kit, complete with samba music, that takes you on a sensory journey through Brazil.

With a few trips on the horizon for my travel writing, the brand have been kind enough to send me a selection to showcase when away. So exciting! Consequently, I’ve been busy sorting through my new collection and deciding what pairs will suit the destinations I have lined up. Earmarked for my trip to Montenegro are the black Luna flip flops, which have more of a ‘city’ feel with slingback straps and, of course, the classic ‘Greek’ style pattern on them.

For Halkidiki in Greece later this year, I’ll definitely be packing the Brasil Logo style (mine are in a gorgeous lavender/blue combo) and the urban-style, camo-gold strap flip flops.

Watch this space to see them ‘on location’. Thanks Havaianas.
