Here, at flip-flop nation, everyone owns at least a pair of flip-flops and there’s a wide range of flip-flops available here, from the plain coloured ones to the fashionable ones studded with diamonds. You could either get a pair of flip-flops from Cotton-On for two dollars or you could get the high-end flip-flops at Havaianas where my friends claim that their flip-flops are more durable and comfortable.
In my circle of friends, I was probably the only odd-one out who doesn’t own a pair of Havaianas slippers. I really odd to get one especially with the upcoming 2013 collection which features even more designs! From geek to chic, preppy to punk, there are just endless designs for me to choose from to much my style of dressing. This Brazilian company,which produce it’s first pair of Havaianas from all the way back in 1962, is back again to launch it’s exciting new collection for 2013!

Slim and simple
Flip-flops in vibrant sunshine colours. I would definitely invest one of these simple yet classic designs. I’m eyeing on the lime green one! Examining it closely, you will notice that the foot-bed of all Havaianas have a textured rice pattern which is one of its unmistakable features. The texture rice pattern is designed in this way to remind us of the inspiration behind the Havaianas slippers – Zori, the typical Japanese sandals made from fabric straps and rice straw soles.
Love wearing bling-bling slippers? This is the most anticipated 2013 collection where you would find diamond-studded or golden metal skulls encrusted flip flops.
