Ipanema is a fun, chic and colorful Brazilian made sandal and flip flop collection named after one of the most exotic and famous beaches in the world. Using the spectacular coastal neighborhood of Ipanema in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, as the backdrop and inspiration, we create the Ipanema footwear collection to be the perfect blend of a relaxed seaside lifestyle with the sophistication of city glamour.
With a fast-growing presence in the closets and on the feet of Hollywood’s elite, Ipanema can be seen on celebrities such as Angelina Jolie, Halle Berry, Kate Hudson, Ashton Kutcher and so many others. Ipanema is also proud to be the Official Footwear Sponsor of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim held each July in Miami Beach.
Ipanema sandals and flip flops are coveted for their creative and comfortable styles made using our super soft and durable Flexpand 100% recyclable plastic. With eyes on the environment and the future, the Ipanema collection is made using at least 30% recycled materials, while 99% of all factory waste is recycled or reused.
