havaianas-slim2.JPGHaving recently been initiated into the Havaianas cult, I'm pretty excited about the wide range of fair-weather footwear that the Brazilian brand is bringing out right now. The word 'wide' is a pertinent one here though because even speaking as someone with flat, fat feet (trust me, I used to weep on those start-rite measuring machines), I've found that the standard Havaiana flip-flops are unusually generous on the width - so much so that I could do with something slimmer.

Three cheers then for Havaianas Slim and its more slender take on the classic thongs. The usual black, sand and red varities are all available in Slim styles, but my favourite at the moment is the 'peacock' style, which is decorated in shimmering, summery colours. Wear them with pride for £24.99 at Schuh.
