Havaianas are made with the most incredible quality. We visit them every year and the process of how they are put together constantly amazes me. They are engineered perfectly to be comfortable on all terrains and hold up well in salt water and chlorine. They come in a million colors but, for us, it’s got to be black. As far as I’m concerned, if you don’t have black flip-flops you can’t make it through the summer month. In a way, it’s the $18 status symbol of the beach.
