After four years of experience with Ipanema flip-flops in lieu of Havaianas, the verdict is in.
Ipanemas are better than Havaianas in every conceivable way. Stronger material. Better looking. More precises detailing. Better quality control.
Not one strap on any pair of Ipanemas I have bought has ever broken before the soles wore out from walking on concrete.
The same cannot be said of Havaianas. Several pairs had straps break on me after wearing them for merely a month or two.
Olá iPANEMA, Adeus Havaianas.
Havaianas are junk. Ipanemas on the other hand, are a quality product.
If you live in Taipei, here is where to shop.
