Supermodel Gisele Bündchen and Oskar Metsavaht, designer of Brazilian sportswear brand Osklen (also a sports medicine specialist, no big deal) put their fashion brains together for this special collection of sandals. Each sandal in the new Ipanema RJ Spring 2012 collection was designed with comfort in mind.

Named after the gorgeous Ipanema beach in Brasil, the foot bed of the Ipanema RJ sandal imitates the white sand and when you take your foot out of the sandal, it leaves an impression that looks like you’ve just stepped off of its white sandy beaches. All made with 100% recyclable material, each pair helps support ISA, the socio-environmental institute, to help fight against climate change.
