Flip-flops have their place —and that place is at the beach. I mean… Even the most stringent of sartorial gents and anti-flip-floppers have to admit that the whole shoe game changes when you’re heading out for an afternoon at the beach.

Of course, there is no shortage of affordable plastic-and-foam flip-flops out there, but nothing compares to these perennial summer favourites. Based on traditional straw-bottomed shoes worn by Geishas, Havaianas were originally designed for Brazilian labourers. Today the flexible rubber sandals are widely regarded as the best flip-flops in the world thanks to Havaianas closely guarded vulcanized rubber formula that offers a more comfortable, bouncier flip-flop that doesn’t cause blisters.

The best part? Havaianas are available in a rainbow of colours, are available almost anywhere and only run you $20-$26.

Just don’t think of them as a summer street style staple.
