Whether you're prepping for a vacation or the start of summer, flip-flops are essential, and Havaianas makes some of the best. In the early '60s, Havaianas (Portuguese for Hawaiians) modeled its sandals after the Japanese Zori style. The traditional shoe's rice-straw soles inspired the now-iconic texture of Havaianas soles. Today, the brand stays true to its roots but injects new energy with vibrant prints, detailed embellishments and bright colors. Shop the brand's offerings for the whole family, including Havaianas shoes for women and Havaianas for kids, at Nordstrom.
