Ipanema by Gisele Bundchen

This is a review of the Flip flops that I bought last Summer,,, Since its Autumn now here in OZ.. I would like to make a review of this nice Flip flops that my daughter and I used the whole summer.....

This is my Ipanema by Gisele Bundchen ,, still looks nwe,, and I am quite happy with the quality,, it is very durable and quite comfy....
So,, by next year,, I can still use it!!!!! what a good buy...
Ipanema
Ipanema is the choice of Brazilian goddess, supermodel and beach babe, Gisele Bundchen. She slips into her own range of beautiful Ipanemas to take her from beach to bar.

Only Ipanema flip flops are made from a unique buttersoft PVC suitable for vegetarians. Specialised moulding creates a sole that’s sublimely soft and guarantees you a perfectly padded underfoot. Industrial residues, painting residues, surplus PVC and the water used in production are 99% recycled. Whether you choose to stroll about all day, or only walk as far as the ice cream stall, you can be sure your feet will be in first-class comfort.
Ikatu strap By Ipanema Giselle Bunchden
Inspired by the art of the Kidedje indians who live in the ancient forests of Brazil's Xingu River. Their tribal design is printed on the soles. Wear them with or without the detachable ankle strap and they add glamour to any outfit. The colour range is understated yet eye catching. Part of these profits go to protect the headwaters of this precious river and its people.

This is my eldest daughters Ipanema by Gisele,,, My daughter  loves wearing this .. the other day I checked it out and to my amazement that it is still wearable ,, my daughter who has a heavy feet and drags her footwear all the time,,, nothing last longer with her,,, some of her shoes are all worn out ,, but this one,,  is still OK,, so thumbs up for this one,,because it was worth buying...

With a classic shape and luscious fauna detailing these flip-flops are sure to please even the most discerning girl and best of all they are available in three gorgeous colours! Brilliant White shimmers, light copper straps bring gorgeous Caramel to life and Coral's vibrant tones combine perfectly with shimmering gold. The choice is yours!


This  one is the Grendha  Ivete Sangalo.. also a Brazilian made flip flops ... We bought this one together with the Ipanema... and it is also durable.... 
At that time when we were buying the flip flops I was  a bit hesitant to buy them because they are a bit pricey, I told my daughter is it just for looks ,, or because it "in" to wear these...
But now... I tested it and know that they are really good quality ... 
so I am now an Ipanema fan ....
