Havaianas Sandals

Illustration: Best Gear SealFlip-flops are scorchingly hot in the fashion world, but that's not why we like Havaianas ($10; www.havaianasus.com). These Brazilian sandals—2.2 billion have been made since 1962—resemble dime-store slaps but have a fatter, cushier rubber bottom to protect your dogs. They're cheap and come in eight styles for men and 21 for women.
