Haute Havaianas

Havaiana flip-flops are Brazil's national shoe. Made since 1962, they've been worn by millions—and in nearly as many colors and patterns (say, daisies, polka dots, the Brazilian flag). For DEPARTURES readers, H. Stern's São Paulo stores will customize a pair (which normally cost a few bucks), adorning the thong with gold or encrusting it with jewels. $3,000–$20,000; 800-747-8376
