Flip-flops for the dedicated soccer fan

April 22, 2010 | 10:00 am


To kick off the 19th FIFA World Cup in South Africa this June, Havaianas – maker of the cushy, knock-around flip-flops – has created a collection of limited edition sandals. From Portugal to Cameroon, 17 soccer team’s names and colors are emblazoned across the insoles of each shoe.

Flip-flops may not be the most appropriate footwear when attending stadium games in South Africa (where it’s winter in June), but if you’re a fan watching on a big screen TV in a Santa Monica pub, they’re perfect.

Havaianas World Cup flip-flops are available in men's and women’s sizes for $24 at
