Coveted Brazilian footwear brand, Ipanema, has launched a line of ethically produced sandals to add to their collection of high quality, comfortable flip-flops. Inspired by the vibrant culture and colours of Rio de Janeiro’s famous Ipanema beach, the forward-thinking footwear company that brought us the world’s first jelly shoe is always looking to innovate in fashion and find better ways of doing things.

Enter these sustainable, ethically produced sandals. Made using 1oo percent recycled materials with 99 percent of factory waste being reused or recycled and with the company working to empower local communities and employees, the shoes aren’t just doing good for the environment and society, they’re beautiful too!

With a range of bright colours and styles to choose from, there’s something for every taste. From metallics and transparent straps to ombre soles and embellishments in gold, silver and bronze, the sandals represent the vivid, colourful lifestyle of Brazil.

The range showcases bright and solid colours and ombre effects in all the flip-flop shapes. Also look out for a lovely range of ankle strap styles with various trims which, while staying true to their casual and comfortable vibe, are so elegant they could take you from the beach to cocktails with ease.

Ipanema is available online from Spree and Zando as well as online and instore from selected Clicks stores with styles priced from as little as R99.
