With the 19th World Cup tournament quickly approaching, soccer fans have South Africa and their favorite “football” teams on their mind. While a lucky few will travel down to see the monumental occasion in person, others will have to rely on daydreams to satisfy their cravings. So, Havaianas decided to embrace this huge sports moment with a 17-piece collection of limited-edition 2010 World Cup-inspired flip-flops. The flip-flops are available for sale on the Havaianas website for only $24. If you’re depressed that plane tickets and admission to the sporting event are out of your budget, here’s a cheap and easy way to show your support. They’d also make a great present for your soccer-loving boyfriend. [Brash] Keep reading »
Stop trying to make jellies happen. It seems like each spring, someone tries to bring back that childhood trend, and it just never gets off the ground, or makes you look like you’re 6 years old again, which is great for attracting pedophiles. Here’s a playful alternative that brings a bit of the jelly feeling—these bow sandals by Melissa are plastic-ly perfect and undeniably adorable. Is it just us … or do you kind of want to put these flip-flops in your mouth?
Everyone needs a perfect spring sandal. We’re talking about the type of shoe that’s basic and comfy enough to go with your usual outfits, but also has a little something extra for your fancier ones. That’s why we’re loving these Frances-Stud flats by Topshop. Pink leather, gold trim, and a braided design down the front make these cute kicks the type of noticeable item your friends will want the deets on. Our recommendation: “Ohhh … I got these in a little indie boutique somewhere, I forget where.” Otherwise, you’re going to have a case of copycats on your hands. (Or feet.)
These sandals are the perfect accent to any outfit, whether you’re heading to the beach or out on the town. They’re unique and fun, come in six colors, and are currently half-price. Wear them in black for a sleeker look or in bright orange for a refreshing pop of color. They’re classier than flip-flops but can also be worn casually — they look great with everything from dresses to jeans. Conclusion? They’re adorable, cheap, and versatile, and they’ll make your feet feel fabulous. So, indulge your toesies, and go strut your stuff in these sexy sandals. [$34.98, Steve Madden] Keep reading »

You might think summer starts when the temperature finally reaches 80 degrees Fahrenheit, your roof deck opens up, and the beaches start charging admission, but you’re wrong. Summer doesn’t actually begin until you put on a fresh pair of flip-flops. Whether they’re the cheap plastic ones from a drug store or a work-appropriate leather pair, or a fancy bejeweled pair, flip-flops are the shoes of the season. Here are 10 that will let your feet take in the fresh air and sun – just don’t forget to paint your toes. We like a bright, punchy coral color like Coral Reef by Essie. Keep reading »
For whatever reason, we find that we wear heels more during winter than in any other season. When summer finally arrives, it’s like a breath of fresh air…for our hooves. Ahh, summer. Finally, a few months where we give our feet a break, put away the high-heeled pumps, and break out the flat sandals. Our toes are free to wiggle, are heels and arches are able to stretch out, and the dogs finally stop barking. While we totally love a traditional pair of flip-flops, from the dressed-down version (Havianas) to the dressed-up (bejeweled metallics from J. Crew), we’re psyched about all the other available flat sandals on the market. Ten of our favorites, after the jump! [Click the images for more information.] Keep reading »
