Ipanema Flip Flops Review – Summer Sandals
Ipanema Flip Flops are a Brazilian brand, made in Brazil and use the flip flops colour and style to reflect the Brazilian spirit. The brand Ipanema has been endorsed by model Gisele Bündchen since 2002 but was originally started by two brothers. The Flip Flops I was sent are part of the Gisele Bündchen Ocean Sandal range in shade Blush. If you need any other inspiration for summer shoes then check out my fancy flats wish list here.
When I first saw the Blush Ipanema Flip Flops online I totally missed that all the sections of the flip flop were made from plastic jelly shoe material. This makes the Flip Flops perfect for surviving both the sea or pool on your summer holiday. Jellies are coming back massively this summer and whilst I enjoy the nostalgia I’m not totally sold on if I’d like a pair. The Ipanema Flip Flops come as a fantastic alternative, made from the same material but pretty, delicate and stylish. The textures on the Flip Flops does not look plastic but means that they are comfy and hardwearing.
The Ipanema Flip Flops are also designed for comfort and support, the soles are moulded to support the contour of the soul whilt walking. Ipanema Flip Flops recommend going up a size as they are designed to fit snugly, but I am usually a size 6 and they fit me really well. Although my Blush Flip Flops look delicate they are in no way flismy, they are strong, sturdy and really well made. I love the Blush shade of my Ipanema Flip Flops but they have a wide range of colours from the subtle to the vibrant. Other colours in the Ocean Sandal range include white, bronze, aqua, blue and coral and I really like the contrast mosaic detailing on the front of the Flip Flops.
