Truth be told, you live, breath and sleep food -- so why not wear it, too? We're not talking Lady Gaga meat-suit or Katy Perry lollipop bra. Instead, you can now rock flip flops made for foodies.

Miami celeb chef Michelle Bernstein has created a series of custom pins for what are arguably the world's most comfortable flip flops, Havaianas. So from ice cream to vino, you can now wear your favorite tastes atop your toes.

The cutesy sandal accouterments are a tribute to Bernstein's Instant Brazilian Joy lineup at the South Beach Wine and Food Festival's (SoBeWFF) Burger Bash, a culinary mash-up of her Latin style and the Brazilian traditions behind Havaianas.

The pins are recreations of various edibles including pasta, a glass of wine, cracked eggs, burgers, fries, ice-cream, pickles and ketchup, among others.

The event will pair flip flops with food, with guests able to order offerings like the Bolo de Maracujá (passion fruit cake) with purple sandals and the ice cream pin; the Brazilian burger with red sandals and the burger pin, or Moqueca (Brazilian seafood stew) with gold flip flops and the fish pin.

Bernstein will be on-site on February 22 at the Havaianas booth, showcasing her sandals and giving away recipe cards of her creations. Her custom sandal, "The Meal" (gold flip flop with ketchup, burger, pickle and fries pin) will be available for sale at the event and on havaianas.com. The pins will run $2.50 a pop for the duration of the SoBeWFF (February 21 - 24).

Wear 'em proud, fellow foodies.
