Get summer’s essential flip-flops made to order
From the volleyball hunks to the sand between your toes: Some days, we think the scene at North Avenue Beach is hardly discernable from the feel of tropical spring breaks past.
Starting today, the beach’s grooviest pop-up shop lets you choose the footwear you need to navigate a week of 100-degree highs. Havaianas, the Brazilian makers of the classic rubber flip-flops that come in a rainbow of colors, is heading into its second season at North Avenue Beach.
The festive make-your-own-Havaianas pop-up lets beachgoers customize their flops with ten different strap styles and an array of vibrant pins for accessorizing (prices start at $21). Stop in wearing your favorite swimsuit and leave with a pair of perfectly matched sandals, or pick up flip-flops for all your friends and give them as party favors (or dancing shoes) at your next summer soiree.
Now all we need is a coordinating pedicure.
