The Brazilian company Havaianas, known around the world for its flip-flops, celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2012, and it's doing better than ever.

With $210 million in worldwide sales in 2011, Havaianas are the most recognizable flip-flop brand around the world.

With prices starting at just $18 and a wide range of styles and colors, it's hard to resist owning just one pair. Some people even admitted to Jack Feeley, who traveled to Rio ahead of the Confederations Soccer Cup, that they own at least a dozen of them.

How many do you own?
