Like all men (who also must die), you’ll be needing some footwear to accompany the rising heat level. In partnership with HBO, cult-favorite sandal makers Havaianas released three Game of Thrones sandals that offer the breathability you need and the fandom-flex you desire whether you’re at home on a Sunday watching the newest episode, attending a backyard cookout with your GoT buds, lounging by the pool, or building sand castles with your kids.The first pair of Havaianas were worn in 1962, designed after the traditional Japanese sandal known as the Zori, whose soles are made of rice straw. Although Brazilian-based Havaianas constructs its soles from rubber, the sandals feature a cushioned footbed on that wears a textured rice pattern reminiscent of the typical Zori flip flop. The Game of Thrones sandals follow the trend.Each pair, offered in sizes 8-13 in U.S. men’s sizing, features mismatched patterns with a Game of Thrones-themed print, the signature rice pattern, and a durable y-shaped strap. The Havaianas Game of Thrones sandals are now available online for just $26, which is nothing to non-kneelers like us.
