As spring melts away the chill of winter, men start to fantasize about ditching their socks and sliding their toes into a comfortable pair of flip flops or men’s sandals.

Since 1962, men all over the world have turned to Havaianas for comfortable and stylish casual footwear. The first pair of Havaianas was inspired by the Zori, typically Japanese sandals make of fabric straps and rice straw soles. Now, Havaianas come is several styles and colors. These sandals continue to be popular because “they don’t lose their shape, don’t smell and the straps don’t get loose.”

But Havanaias does’t only cater to men. They also have a fabulous women’s collection of sandals and flip flops.

If you’re ready to set your feet free, head over the Havanaias website and select a style that best fits your personality (you can even customize your own flops).

I’d also like to give one lucky reader an opportunity to winner a pair of flip flops (up to a $40 value). To enter the contest, leave a comment answering the following question:

Are socks and sandals a good look? Why or why not?
