The Havaianas Soul Collection revisits Spanish roots in shoe-making and adds a dash of modern streetwear style to these snazzy sneakers.

Before the label Havaianas was born, its parent company Alpargatas, founded in 1907, only sold espadrilles. These Spanish shoes are casual flat sandals made of canvas or cotton fabric with a flexible sole made of rope. In a move that channels the brand's heritage, Havaianas will reintroduce espadrilles along with a new line of ballet flats and sneakers. These new shoes will stay true to the Brazilian brand's hallmarks of style and comfort.

To soothe my feet during a cozy stroll through town, I'd happily put them in any of these shoes from the Havaianas Soul Collection.
