I have to say Havaianas is a must have for all mothers-to-be and new mothers (single mothers even more so). I started wearing mine when I was 5 months pregnant because I have to start wearing flats- the heels were giving me a backache. Everyone was worried about me because they were afraid I might slip and fall (as some of you may know by now, I am a single mother and I was pretty much on my own during my pregnancy- no arms to catch when a fall threatens me). Their worries were unfounded, in fact I almost fell when I wore covered shoes but never my Havaianas. After bubba arrived, I wore them even more regularly because I had to carry him around and move around real fast- I get backache from just carrying this 4kg baby.
What many people don’t know is that Havaianas is famous for its stylish designs for the sole and souls- the cheerful prints and the special blend of latex is that attributed its durability. As a new mom, the stress of not being able to get back into shape quickly- to look great- made me very moody for a while. It didn’t take long to lift my spirits with the Havaianas I wore because they were in bright colors.
Who says wearing flip flops is boring and ugly? The children collection is definitely a deal breaker for me. They are so cute that I want to buy one for Bubba and an adult version for myself. The 2013 collection will be in the stores coming January 2013, be sure to check out the new designs and you will be just as smittened by them as I am.
