I think I've found the perfect combination of a comfi flip flop and a nice looking sandal: the Havaianas freedom sandal.
Now this isn't nothing. I always pack my Havaianas flip flops to have something comfi and light to walk around on in warm weather, but then I also always pack a pair of more dressy sandals to wear to dinner or on other moments when flip flops just won't cut it.
The Havaianas Freedom flip-flops, however, are both comfi, waterproof and trendy. They come in different colors and I really went wild when I chose the silver once, as I usually always go for “you can combine me with everything”-black.
So, how did I like them?
Havaianas Freedom sandal review
When I first got these Havaianas flip flops, I have to admit I was a little worried. They looked great, but it turned out they didn't come in a single size. There's a 35/36, 37/38, 39/40 … (European sizes).
I got a 37/38 for my 37-sized feet and had quite some space left at the back of the sandal. My main concern was that the flip flops would constantly slip out when walking in them.
What I liked
Luckily, they stayed right on my feet the whole time I was wearing them. That's because these Havaianas Freedom sandals have fully adjustable ankle straps. There are no holes and a pin like with most sandals, you just have to double the long strap and pull it through two little loops and it'll stay fixed.
This wouldn't work so well with leather or fabric, but because these Havaianas with back strap are made from the same rubber as the regular Havaianas flip flops, the strap ‘sticks' and stays nicely put.
Another thing I liked was the sole. Just like with my Havaianas flip flops, the sole is a bit higher at the back than in the front, which offers extra comfort. Same goes for the nice cushioning.
And of course, their look was important to me as well. These are flip flops that you can easily wear to the beach. They're easy to take off and put back on and because they're entirely made out of rubber you just have to wash them off with some water and they're good as new again.
On the other hand, their design, with the fine straps, make them perfect to wear to dinner as well. I wore them under a dress one night and thought they looked really good.
What I liked less
Although I wasn't bothered by the double size, I think the Freedoms would've looked even more elegant if they'd just been a 37.
Havaianas sandals review: final verdict
I love these! I even think I prefer the Freedom flip flips to the regular Havaianas flip flops because the ankle strap gives just that little bit of extra support when walking around.
