When I first heard of the phrase “flip flops” I was kind of confused because I had never seen or owned flipflops before. The thing is though when all was said and done, when was the last time you flipped flops? It never occurred to me until then that flip flops do in fact have an age-old history of being passed down through generations of families, as has been my experience. And if you think about it, I can kind of see how a simple pair of flips could have become such an iconic footwear item.
The History of the Havaianas Flip Flops
My mom has worn havaianas for years, more than once upon her birthday, and I have two sisters who have also worn them. They’re great fun, comfortable, and allow you to wear them with a cute, frumpy skirt, which makes them the perfect weekend footwear. My mother still has a few pairs, and she tells me that each pair was made by a different company, each with their own name. That’s just the way it goes with havaianas, you never know whose name they’re made by.
The thing I love most about havaianas flip flops is the way the straps go up your legs. You can barely see them once you’re walking, but they add a little bit of height to your step, and a nice comfortable touch to wearing sandals all day long. The other reason why I love them so much is because they come in so many styles, colors, and fabrics. You can even get them in pretty patterns like flowers or butterflies!
