You know what the best kinds of flip flops are? The ones you can wear to both the beach and to any upscale hub, a.k.a. a pair that you can rock with bermuda shorts or a smart trench. Like so:
The new Havaianas collection absolutely fits that bill. Designed by Reality to Idea, a design house headed by graphic artist Joshua Vides, the collab collection is a cartoonish, freehand play in black and white. If you're familiar with Joshua's work, you'll know that 2D-esque illustrations are his forte. Paradoxically, the 2D art gives these uncolored flip flops extra dimension.
With just two pairs of flip-flops and a quirky sock, the collab's quite the lean collection, but that's part of its charm.
All the pieces to shop from the Havaianas x Reality to Idea Collection:
Top RTI Flip Flops
The Top RTI Flip Flops stick to a formidable formula: Textured black straps and a comfy, rounded footbed. The thick black outline on the foot adds a clever touch. Keep up with the domino motif and style them with polka dots!

Tradi Zori RTI Flip Flops
Okay, we've seen our fair share of square toe footwear. This pair, on the other hand, features the coolest extended square heel. It strikes us as a cross between a surfboard and the Japanese geta, which makes us, like, need it. We can think of a hundred ways to style this. We're loving the layout below—the model wore it with high socks and a sleek all black look.

In case you were wondering: Yes, the socks are part of the collection, too! They come with a split toe to accommodate the flip flop stems, which is brilliant. We love the cap toe design, as well as the organic speckled pattern. It's perfect for fans of athleisure!
