10 Fashionable Havaianas Flip Flops for the Beach

Fan of the humble flip flop? We all have Havaianas to thank for them; it was the first company to mass-produce a beach shoe made entirely of rubber. Since then countless companies have imitated the brand, but there’s nothing quite like the original.

Founded in 1962, Havaianas was invented by a man called Robert Fraser. The shoe was inspired by the traditional Japanese ‘Zori’ sandal brought over from Japan by GIs after World War Two. These shoes were made from a cushioning rice straw material, with a thong strap support – much like the Havaianas we know and love today. In fact, the rice patter sole on every Havaianas flip flop is a nod to its Japanese origins. The company has grown to become the world’s largest producer of flip flops, with 200 million pairs sold every year. There’s over a hundred different styles, colours and patterns to choose from, so if you’re stumped on which to choose, we’ve rounded up ten fashionable flip flops for the beach. 

Top Flip Flops 

The Top Flip Flop is Havaianas signature style and a real summer staple. Available in a variety of different vibrant colours, this iconic style works well by the beach and pool. The flip flop is available in a staggering range of sizes, suitable for kids, men and women. The rubber sole features a cushioned footbed for extra comfort and the classic textured rice pattern sole for grip. Prices from $18.
