Havaianas are legendary flip flops. i used to live in Brazil. I bought loads of pairs back when i left. Havaianas are the best flip flops money can buy. i am still wearing two of many pairs i bought in brazil over TEN years ago! the rubber is probably the best in the world, thats one of the reasons the portuguese and americans ravaged the rubber trees in brazil. Now, these things bought on amazon, well, they lasted me a grand total of 3 weeks! really? yep....3 weeks, instead of the ten years plus you expect from true brazilian havaianas. the rubber soles wore very quickly and cracked in several places and then the strap snapped to completely kill them. You can get better quality flip flops in shoezone in the hight street or something for about 2 quid. I am disgusted frankly that anyone could sell these as havainas when they are clearly fakes from asia or europe. i recommend buying online directly from brazil, not asian or european fakes. total crap and a waste of time.
