I love comfort. Who doesn’t? I think Brazilians, especially those from Rio de Janeiro, perfected comfort. An easy way to add Brazilian comfort flare to a normally stuffy life (not pointing any fingers, just making some generalizations)? Buy Havainas! These are the flip-flops many Brazilians swear by. They are often imitated, but your feet know the difference! The best part? They’re affordable.
