Whether you're lounging in Ibiza or just hanging out in your back garden, a pair of Havaianas will put you in a cheery mood. The label's flip flops and espadrilles are lightweight and comfy.

The Havaianas story: Japanese-inspired flip flops

Havaianas is something of an authority where flip flops are concerned. The brand's been around for a while - it launched in 1962 - and its rubber footwear is known for being tough yet comfortable. The original Havaianas design was based on the traditional Japanese Zori sandal, which has rice straw soles. A fine texture inspired by rice grains still features on the brand’s flip flops, giving them a distinctive look and feel. They originally only came in blue and white, but now you'll find pieces in just about every colour. Look out for the hallmark 'Brasil' styles with the Brazilian flag strap; the design was launched to celebrate the 1998 World Cup, but it's stuck around since then.

Colourful shoes for everyone from Havaianas

Comfort and style combine to create Havaianas shoes. Choose from bold tropical print designs that, when paired with swimwear, will quickly get you into the holiday mood. Plain-colour styles, from bright yellow to timeless black, are great everyday choices to pair with T-shirts and caps on sunny days. There are also styles in this edit for kids, too, so you can dress your mini-me to match. Keep an eye out for brightly coloured flip flops featuring their favourite TV and film characters, from superheroes to princesses. Because they're easily slipped on, flip flops are a fuss-free choice for kids - whether they're pottering around the house or playing in the garden.
