Havaianas, a footwear brand that's known for its comfortable, classic, and durable flip flop sandals, recently joined forces with designers like Charlotte Olympia, Manolo Blahnik, Mary Katrantzou, and Simone Rocha to create high fashion versions of them.

The resulting looks are incredibly creative, with designers adding virtually everything to the flip flops to transform them into shoes that are fit for the runway -- from dramatic stiletto heels and platforms, to luxurious pearls and statement rhinestones. Although the majority of the reinterpreted Havaianas flip flops aren't really wearable, they function as great art pieces for shoe collectors.

The purpose of the endeavor between Havaianas and the designers is to raise money for Women for Women, a nonprofit organization that aids women who are in countries that are affected by war.
